A LAST-GASP winner saw Haddenham win their eighth game of the season in sensational style.
Mepal scored after four minutes but Joshua Lowe equalised after winning possession in his own half and outpacing the defence before slotting home.
Lowe cut in from the left to give the visitors the lead and Matthew Beary made it 3-1.
Mepal pulled one back before Kieran Petty scored directly from a corner to make it 4-2 with 10 minutes remaining. Mepal immediately pulled one back and equalised with two minutes left, and in the dying seconds Matthew Wright ran half the length of the pitch to thump home a superb winner.
Haddenham squad: Jake Alsop, Kieran Petty, Matthew Beary, Matthew Wright, Joseph Alsop, Charlie Tunnell, Ricky Sawyer, Joshua Lowe.
Witchford Colts 6
Sutton Rangers 0
COLTS took the lead through an own goal after Max Loker caused panic in the Sutton defence and two rasping Callum Munden drives made it 3-0.
Ben Lymer latched on to a through-ball and finished in the corner and the fifth was scored by Loker, who made a good run before clearing the ball from under his feet and blasting it into the top corner.
Jordan Emms completed the scoring after good wing play and a cross from Munden.
Witchford squad: Sam Brewer, Alex Matcham, Kieron Reed, Robert Barker, Arthur Maddox, Ben Lymer, Jordan Emms, Callum Munden, Henry Green, Max Loker, Jack Sheridan.
Ely Crusaders 3
Soham Town Colts 0

Witchford Colts 1
Newmarket Town B 2
A SPENCER Saberton free-kick from near the halfway line gave Witchford the lead, but two goals on the break earned Newmarket victory.

Burwell Tigers 3
Haddenham Rovers Colts B 2
BURWELL went in front and an amazing save from Haddenham goalkeeper Laurence Martin prevented them from doubling their lead.
Daniel Piggott produced a pinpoint delivery to Robert Nangle to equalise and the pair combined again before Nangle's perfect strike made it 2-1.
Burwell levelled just before the break, and their persistence paid off as they clinched a winner.
Chatteris Town 1
Haddenham Rovers Colts A 4
ROVERS cruised to their ninth straight league win.
Conditions made it difficult but a rare quality move produced the opening goal, with Alex Lowe finishing off a neat one-two with a strike from the edge of the area.
A combination of Oliver Holden and a Chatteris defender doubled Haddenham's advantage, but slack defending allowed Chatteris to score on the break.
Rovers re-established their two-goal cushion when Matthew Morton converted a Drummond corner, and the win was completed when Jake Bartolozzi's shot from distance was deflected home by Holden's outstretched boot.
Haddenham squad: Jake Bartolozzi, Kieran Drummond, Richard Padmore, Joe Snooks, Oliver Holden, Matthew Morton, Alex Lowe, John Falconer.
Littleport Town 3
Cambridge Musketeers 1

CHRIS Smith headed Soham into the lead in the 25th minute after good work from Chris Avis. Waterbeach equalised in the second half after a free-kick.

Ely never looked back and a Ryan Lowe goal sealed the win.

Ely City 0 Soham 0
LEADERS Soham were pegged back from the start with Matt Waites, Ryan Collins and Jordan Miller sending in fierce shots.
City's midfield of Ryan Howell, Will Law and Dan Beavis and Miller were dictating the game.
Sean Richardson pulled off some fine saves to keep Soham at bay in the second half, while man of the match Ryan Collins was dominant as Ely pushed forward.
Sam Bryan, Alex Newton and Chris Smith put in excellent tackles, but after creating the better chances City were disappointed to only draw.
Balsham 0 Witchford Colts D 5
