AC Malone kept the pressure on Shillington in an eight-goal thriller against Wanderers.
Malones scored twice in the first 20 minutes through Jeff King and Sean Duigan and looked to be coasting to a comfortable victory until Wanderers got a goal back via James Taylor.
Wanderers levelled the scores at 2-2 when Barney Buck finished from close range. John Bonner-May scored as Malones took the lead again but this only lasted five minutes when Stuart Smillie headed in from a Mark Norriss corner.
Malones edged ahead yet again with a goal about 20 minutes from time by Rob Dowler. Then as Wanderers looked for the equaliser, Malones sealed the game with a second goal for Dowler three minutes from the end.
Operation Swordfish had a goal fest in Division Two, putting nine goals past Dynamo Letchworth who managed one consolation goal in reply.
Shillington Sunday were another team that had a good day by winning 6-1 against Broadmead.
North Herts Hatters continued their impressive start to the season with a narrow victory against a hardy Cannon Res side.
Marcus Sarll opened the scoring for the Hatters before Cannon scored from the penalty spot through Jason Harrison after a foul by Shaun Smith. Hatters sealed the points when Sarll struck again with a scissor kick that also stopped Cannon gaining their first point of the season.
Red Hart almost gained their first league points of the season with goal machine Adam Myers bagging a superb hat-trick against Clifton Sunday.
However, Clifton managed to hang on to claim a 4-3 victory thanks to goals from Glenn Clarke, Ashley Schurch, James Curly and Jacob Kirby on his debut plus a string of fine second-half saves from their goalkeeper.
In Division Three, Athletico Hitchin went goal grazy and despite conceding three scored 11 to thrash LGC Spartans. The goals from Brian Humphries (four), Stephen Oakman (hat-trick), Richard Gates (two) and Anthony Humphries (two) put Athletico top on goal difference.
Goals from James Tizard and Shaun Jenkins gave Clifton Sunday Res a 2-0 lead but Walsworth fought back for a share of the spoils forcing a 2-2 draw and taking a point.
Green Man Ickleford suffered a rare defeat by losing 2-0 to Wilbury. Both Wilbury goals came in the first half from Dan Levy and Jamie Hatch.
Wanderers Res picked up their second league win 4-1 against lowly Paynes Park thanks to two goals each from Mayo Fadaka and Steve Parker.
