ELY Park Rangers now look certain to win Division 1A after recording a 6-3 victory at University Chemical Labs.

David Cornwell opened the scoring after flicking on a pass from full-back Brady Stone, and Cornwell then made it 2-0 with a header before diving in to complete his hat-trick in similar fashion.

Jamie Gayfer nodded home to make it 4-1 soon afterwards, and Rangers went on to increase their advantage with a quite comical goal.

There seemed little danger when Stone's ambitious 45-yarder dropped into the box, but when a defender attempted to head back to the hapless goalkeeper, he only succeeded in putting the ball through his own goal.

The score was 5-2 to Rangers at half-time, and a deflected shot from Andrew Francis kept UCL at arms-length after they had managed to pull another goal back.
