After two weeks away from league action, Division A returned and yet again provided an entertaining round of games.
In what was the most anticipated game of the week, Maldon and Aveley didn't disappoint. With both sides on winning runs from the start of the season, this was almost seen as an early season title decider.
Free-scoring Maldon managed to continue their momentum as they put five past a strong Aveley side in a 5-1 win. With 29 goals in four games and already 5 points clear at the top of the league, Maldon look to be setting the tone in Division A as they chase the title.
Aveley who now find themselves in sixth were in a strong position before the game, but after a number of weeks since they last played, this may have had some effect on their performance. They will hope to get back to winning ways when they host Hitchin Town in the cup.
Concord Rangers got back to winning ways in comfortable fashion with a 5-0 win against a Dagenham & Redbridge side who were unable to add to their only point of the season.
After a disappointing home defeat two weeks ago against runaway leaders Maldon & Tiptree, Concord won comfortably to get up to fifth place and only the one point behind second place Boreham Wood Blues. After a tough start, Concord might now have the opportunity to build some momentum, which will be vital as they go into the next round of cup matches next Wednesday.
Dagenham & Redbridge having been knocked out of the cup, managed to get their first point of the season against fellow strugglers Braintree, but couldn't add to that against Concord. They now look ahead to next week when they face bottom of the table Redbridge Youth in what is the only league fixture of the week.
Lowestoft Town thumped Redbridge Youth 8-2 as the home side improve from last weekend’s woeful 4-0 loss to Brightlingsea Regent. The hosts remain seventh whilst the visitors remain at the foot of the table.
Elsewhere Brightlingsea Regent continued their unbeaten start with a 2-1 away win at Barking. The hosts remain pointless at the bottom of the table after three games, and have a mountain to climb in their next outing at Maldon and Tiptree if they are to get anything from the league’s form side.
Romford Blue travelled to Boreham Wood and comfortably wrapped up their third league victory of the season.
The game was goalless until the second interval when Sofian Maghouz broke the deadlock with an unstoppable drive into the bottom corner of the Boreham Wood net. Maghouz now has four goals in his last two games, following a hat trick last week.
Romford then took the game to the hosts. Peter Oyetunji latched onto a sublime through pass from Norey, before lifting the ball over the onrushing keeper.
The visitors had a third when John De Sousa Quissua showed fantastic feet, before slamming into the hosts net for the final time.
Romford lie in fourth after their impressive win but Boreham Wood on the other hand lost ground on their push for the top. Maldon and Tiptree now have a five point lead at the summit, with a 100% record to maintain.
