Ely Park Rangers Reserves improved their Division 2A title hopes with a convincing 6-0 win over Chippenham.
Dave Cornwell broke the deadlock, and Martin Blakeley scored either side of the interval to make it 3-0 to Ely.
Andrew Lee then found the net before Blakeley completed his hat-trick, and subsitute Jamie Gayfer wrapped up the points with a sixth goal in the closing stages.
In the same section QPR Ely lost by the odd goal in five at home to Exning United, and the same scoreline saw AFC Witchford surrender the points in their home 4A clash with West End House.
Jamie Linney (2) and Kevin Hills put West End in the driving seat, and those three goals proved sufficient at the hosts could only manage a Michael Ward double during a much-improved second half performance.
