Waltham Abbey strengthen their position just below top two

With the top two in the Pitching In Southern League Division One Central not in action, it gave Waltham Abbey the chance to strengthen their place just behind them with a 3-2 victory at Biggleswade Town.

The home side edged in front through Damani Hunter but a brace from Prince Domafriyie early in the second period turned the scoreline around. Jonathan Lacey levelled things up with 20 minutes to go before Ben Baker grabbed a late winner.

There was drama in our Star Game as AFC Dunstable won 3-2 at Kidlington. Piers Walton gave the home side, who went into the game four unbeaten, the lead during the first half and they held on to it until an action-packed final 20 minutes where Enrico Greco levelled only for Connor Ferguson to put Kidlington back in front. Ethan Holt made it 2-2 with ten minutes to go before Greco (pictured) popped up with what proved to be the winner a few minutes later.

Hertford Town moved up to fourth with a deserved 2-0 victory over Biggelswade. A goal in each half from Kurainashe Musanhi and Sonny Coughlin-Brown earned the victory.

Just behind them in fifth-place are Ware who raced into a three-goal first half lead against Hadley thanks to goals from Mitch Hahn, David Sota and Liam Dulson. The visitors hit back at the start of the second period with a double from Isaac Stones before Dulson notched his second to secure a 4-2 win.

The day’s other game saw bottom of the table Thame United lose 3-1 at home to Leighton Town, whilst the wet weather was the winner at Bedford Town, Kings Langley and Welwyn Garden City.
