White Hart were 4-1 winners at Nirankari after storming into a 2-0 lead with goals from Jay Drackford, who tucked his goal beautifully in the bottom corner, and Sam Gittings who rifled in from six yards.
In the second half, Dale Lock's strike made it three and Drackford got his brace of goals with a neat finish. Nirankari's Trevor Long grabbed a consolation with the last kick of the game.
In Division One North, St Ippolyts shared eight goals with Therfield Eagles.
