It was goals galore in Division A as a total of 38 goals were scored across the five fixtures played this week.

Maldon & Tiptree produced yet another outstanding display as they won 5-0 at home against the league's bottom of the table team, Barking.

With five games played by the majority of the league and already a five point gap between 1st and 2nd, early signs do indicate that we know who will be topping the Division by the end of the season. Maldon, the only team with a perfect start, have already scored 34 goals in those five games and look to like they can't be stopped. The game against Barking was another example of this, as they scored a lot of goals and managed to get another clean sheet.

Barking on the other hand are the complete opposite as they have yet to gain even a point in the season so far. Barking though have faced some tough challenges and are nowhere near the worst at conceding goals in the league. They haven't really faced anyone from lower down the Division and so when they do start playing these teams, they may well start getting results, starting next week against Redbridge.

Aveley maintained the momentum from last week's cup win against Hitchin Town, as they won 9-0, in what was an emphatic victory against Dagenham & Redbridge.

Aveley lost some ground in the Division after the big loss against Maldon, but now seem to be catching up again as they are now a point behind second place with a game in hand. Although at this stage it would seem unlikely they could catch Maldon, Aveley based on the way they are starting to play now, could still have a high finish in the league.

Dagenham are not in the best scenario at the moment. After the defeat, they still remain with one point and although they aren't bottom, the two teams below them both have a game in hand over Dagenham and with Maldon their next opponents, they may well find themselves further down the table. Currently with the second highest goals conceded, that too may get even worse.

Romford FC picked up another victory on Wednesday night, with an emphatic 10-1 pummeling of travelling Lowestoft.

The hosts took the lead through a fantastic counter attack, Rhys Sika-Nartey with a simple sliding finish from a Ramzi Mahmoudi layoff.

Sika-Nartey then turned provider when he cut the ball back from the by-line to give Amad Walker the second on a plate.

Walker picked up his second before half time with a sweetly struck volley from ten yards out.

After the interval the away side tested the home keeper twice before rueing their missed opportunities. Walker netted his hat-trick in the 56th minute, rounding the keeper and passing into the empty net.

His fourth goal of the night was to come next, the scoreline now standing at an impressive 5-0, but the blues were unable to register a clean sheet as Lowestoft bagged their consolation shortly after.

Romford made sure the job was done, dashing any slim hopes of a comeback with five more second half goals. John de Sousa Quissua scored a second half brace while Peter Oyetunji, Mahmoudi and Abdullah Rafique all got onto the scoresheet as the game finished 10-1.

Romford remain in fourth place in the Division A table and have the second best defensive record in the league after their four games. The blues remain six points off of table toppers Maldon and Tiptree. Brightlingsea Regent is their next test at home in their final November fixture.

Elsewhere in Division A Boreham Wood produced an immaculate 9-1 away performance against a struggling Braintree side who sit second from bottom with just a point from their first four games. The hosts must pick themselves up if they are to record their first win of the season against Lowestoft next week.

Brightlingsea Regent were the other side to gain three points on Wednesday night, with a well fought 2-1 victory at Redbridge.

Regent are five points off of the summit with 10 points from their opening four, and have a game in hand on both the sides above them in the table. Redbridge will look to respond to this defeat with a trip to rock-bottom Barking coming up next.
