St Georges were 10-0 victors over Division Four side Royal Boys, while goals from Daniel Dennis, Jason Laidley, Simon Matson and Justin Leonce earned Jay Cubed a 4-1 triumph over The Aberfeldy.

Albion Manor strolled to a 5-1 victory over Walthamstow Village with Darren Whelan supplying a hat-trick. Raymond Gibbon and Rickie Edwards also scored for the Goldsmiths Row side.

Wenlock Arms recorded an impressive 5-2 win in their Hoxton derby clash with Midfield as in-form striker Harry Turner bagged a brace. Dave Blair scored twice and Alex Garrett also netted for Wenlock, while Luke Trim scored both goals for Midfield.

Wounded Knee recovered from an early deficit against Division Three opponents AFC Knights before Andy Matyo hit a double to inspire Knee to a 2-1 win.

The league's top clash between title contenders Clapton Rangers and Eureka produced a thrilling contest that ended in a 4-4 draw.

Clapton took a two-goal lead but their Hackney rivals hit back to level the scores. Clapton again forged ahead to lead 4-3, but in the game's final minute Eureka forced an equaliser and snatched a 4-4 draw.

James Smith hit a double for Clapton, with Ashley Bennett and Nathan Gordon also on target, while Peter John-Finn's brace and goals from Marlon Campbell and Shane Baptiste secured a point for Eureka.
