THE CLASH of the day in the BRT Redditch & South Warwickshire Combination saw Washford Lions keep their Division Two 100 per cent record at the expense of their rivals Woodland, but only an own goal separated the high-flyers in the visitors' 1-0 success.
Also in Division Two, Kingswood Town gained their first league win of the season with a 3-0 success over Mayfly, whilst in Division One Fleece and Translift Bendi shared the points in a hard fought 1-1 draw.
The unpredictable nature of our national game could not have been more evident than in Division Three, where winless Winyates Wanderers destroyed Bell Studley's previously unblemished league record with a 5-1 scoreline, courtesy in no small part to Sam Ward's hat-trick.
Dagnell End Rovers twice came from behind before a late Woodward winner secured a 3-2 win at Kingfisher Angling.
Wythall Wanderers also won by the same 3-2 scoreline at Washford Lions Reserves to maintain their 100 per cent league start.
In the Premier Division, both Webheath and Rubery Bridge posted their first league wins of the season with 2-1 and 4-1 victories over Austin Ex-Apprentices and Studley Sporting respectively.
Athletico continued their faultless start to the league season with a 5-3 win at Bromsgrove General La Coruna.
In the cup matches, a bullet header from Tom Piper was not enough to save Peter Simpson XI from going out of the Jim Fleeman Cup 7-1 at home to higher ranked Beoley Village, for whom James Pugh bagged four goals and Watkin, Herbert and Dave Parsons were also on target.
Thomas Brothers proved to be too strong for Studley Leisure in the BSA Cup as they won 7-1 with Carl Gould scoring four and another Ricardo Richards hat-trick set Bartley Green Sunday on their way to a 4-1 win at Church Hill in the Keith Turner Cup.
