Ely Crusaders 1 Richard Scott Soccer School 1
Crusaders started poorly in this match and the Wimblington-based visitors almost drew first blood when they struck the bar.
They took the lead after 15 minutes however, and Crusaders looked impotent until Jordan Marston levelled the scores with a header from Alex Moreton's cross.
Ely dominated the second half, but failed to convert their chances and eventually had to settle for a share of the spoils.
Soham United A 1 Haddenham Rovers 3
Haddenham continued their superb start to the season with a great display of attacking football against well-organised Soham.
The visitors created early chances, but it was United who took the lead after 15 minutes when a through ball fell to Joseph Bell who scored with a shot on the run.
Both teams hit the woodwork before Haddenham equalised on the stroke of half-time, with Joshua Akinwumi flicking the ball into the path of Josh Lowe who outpaced the defence to score with an unstoppable drive into the top corner.
Haddenham dominated the second period and took the lead within 10 minutes of the restart, Lowe's driven corner being converted at the near post by captain and man-of-the-match Jake Alsop.
Rovers then threatened to take over as Kieran Petty, Matt Wright and Matt Beary all went close.
Josh Lowe eventually made it three when he latched on to Petty's headed clearance and made a solo run before firing in from an acute angle.
Ely Crusaders 1 Arbury Aces 2
Arbury went ahead with an unstoppable free-kick after 15 minutes, with man-of-the-match Mitchell Morse having been penalised for tripping an opponent.
Charlie Root then had a penalty chance to equalise, but fired his effort way over the bar. He then hit the post four minutes after the interval, but Crusaders finally got back on terms following a quickly taken corner.
Morse and Alec Hewitt worked a quick one-two, and when Morse's cross flew under the crossbar Dominic Hunt challenged the goalkeeper and prodded home the ball.
A frantic finale saw both sides produce chances for the winner, but it was Arbury who broke clear to score the decider in stoppage time.
Cottenham United 1 Haddenham Rovers 5
A rampant display of attacking football saw Haddenham Rovers record a 5-1 victory at Cottenham on Sunday.
Rowbinio Shergold and Tyrell Barrett soon had the home goalkeeper in action, and it was not long before captain Alex Lowe curled the ball in from 20 yards after good work by John Falconer and Barrett.
Barrett then chipped the goalkeeper to make it 2-0 after latching on to Lowe's pass, and Falconer headed Barrett's cross into an empty net to make it 3-1 after the hosts had pulled one back.
Shergold thumped a shot against the post before half-time, but at the start of the second half Barrett rounded the 'keeper to make it 4-1.
Elliott Littlefield and midfield anchorman Jake Bartolozzi then came close before Matt Morton completed the rout, Shergold's shot off the post having rebounded into his path.
Haddenham's back four of Snooks, Hall, Drummond and Roberts ensured that the home side would have no opportunity to get back into the game.
Plantation 0 Littleport Town 19
'Port recorded an emphatic win against league strugglers Plantation.
Colt Harvey led the charge with a seven-goal haul, and he was joined on the scoresheet by Ryan Bamber (5), Harlee Carter (3), Tom Green (3) and man-of-the-match Morgan Coleridge.
Plantation missed a first half penalty, but apart from that rarely looked like scoring.
Littleport Town 6 Isleham United 0
'Port continued their unbeaten start to the campaign with a useful win against local rivals Isleham.
Ahsley Pettit opened the scoring early on, and Will Crisp added a second before Arron Heaps and Pettit extended the lead to four.
Ben Hawkins then scored direct from a corner to make the interval score 5-0, and Luke Thompson accounted for the only goal of the second period.
