North and Mid Herts Football League
Only two games - both in the Division One North - survived Saturday's terrible wet weather.
There was a nine-goal thriller at Kimpton Rovers Res as City Hearts won 5-4.
Gareth Brown scored a hat-trick and Jamie Sloane the other two for City Hearts.
Tony Webb also scored a hat-trick and Ross Ward one for Kimpton in reply but it was not enough to earn a point.
AFC Santos won by the odd goal in three against a much changed Westwell side.
In a poor match due to a pitch just about passed fit, both teams struggled to play any football.
With the heavy pitch and high winds, the ball spent a lot of time out of play.
AFC Santos took the lead from an unlikely source, reserve right winger Ben Holloway heading home from only a yard out to beat the keeper and a defender.
Just before half time, Westwell got back on level terms with a goal from one of their new signings, Rick Phillips.
In the second half, it was mainly AFC Santos pressure as they bombarded the Westwell goal.
The winner came via another unlikely source, defensive midfielder Russell Perrett scoring his first ever for the club.
