Ely Park Rangers kept Fen Ditton under pressure at the top of Division 1A with a surprisingly comfortable victory at Kingston Foresters Reserves.
Gary and Richard Dewsbury missed chances early on, but Rob Parker helped himself to a hat-trick as Rangers eventually secured the points with room to spare.
Liam Hart, Richie Murfitt and Ben Cross were the other goalscorers as Ely ran out 6-2 winners at the finish.
In Division 2A Ely Park Rangers Reserves stay top after a resounding 8-2 win at the expense of Milton Sunday.
Dave Cornwell's overhead shot broke the deadlock, and Martin Blakeley added a second goal before the visitors managed to pull one back.
Martin Gray and Blakeley again extended Ely's advantage, and Blakeley then completed his hat-trick as the home side threatened to swamp Milton.
Andrew Francis then added a brace, and Jamie Gayfer was also on target before Stephen Tuck's own goal handed the visitors a late consolation.
QPR Ely crashed 7-2 in the same section at home to Nationals, whilst in Division 4A there was an equally devastating 9-1 defeat for Wicken Maids Head in their match at Girton Eagles Reserves.
West End House were rather more successful in their visit to Prince of Wales Newmarket, scoring five goals without reply as Lee Taylor (2), Shane Feltwell, 'Jez' Breedon and Tony Ure - with the best goal of the match - secured the points.
AFC Witchford travelled to Newmarket Albion Reserves, and put up their best performance of the season to take the spoils against their high-flying rivals.
New signing Clive Lee was instrumental as Michael Ward helped the visitors into a 2-1 lead, and Mark Heading also contributed as Ward went on to complete his hat-trick in a 3-1 win.
Witchford looked very secure at the back for once, with Jonathan Chase and new signing Jonathan Murfitt shoring up the defence as Ward did the business up front.
In the Senior Division Ben Howe helped himself to a hat-trick as Triple-S won easily in their match at Unicorn.
Andrew Short and Scott Fretwell were the other players on target in what proved to be a comfortable 5-1 victory.
