Offley Parish entered the weekend as the sole remaining unbeaten side in the Hitchin Sunday Football League.
But that statistic is no more after they fell to a 1-0 defeat against North Herts Hatters.
Offley, who are still among the front runners in Division Two, were undone by a great strike from Carl Beddard.
The other game in Division Two involved strugglers Dynamo Letchworth and Wilbury.
Goals from Rob Herd and Jamie Dunn gave Dynamo a 2-0 victory and moved them five points clear of the dreaded drop zone.
While Offley go searching for a place in Division One, one team they are unlikely to be facing are HTS Barleycorn Res.
