Hemel Hempstead Town 2-3 Dartford 

Steve King’s side have maintained their leading position despite a recent poor spell, which has now ended with a victory at Vauxhall Road. 

Tyrique Hyde put the visitors ahead on 9 minutes, with Alfie Cerulli levelling the score just over ten minutes later. 

Ade Azeez’s penalty and Hyde’s second of the game cemented the Dart’s grip on the game, with Cerulli netting a last minute consolation. 

It’s a first defeat in six for The Tudors, who have climbed the table in recent weeks. 

Ebbsfleet United 6-0 Welling United 

Ebbsfleet moved up to second place after demolishing Welling United at Stonebridge Road.

Craig Tanner and Rakish Bingham both netted first half braces, with Alfie Egan and Elliott Romain also getting on the scoresheet.

Dennis Kutrieb’s side could even afford to have a Tobi Adebayo-Rowling goal chalked off for offside. 

Welling had kept clean sheets in two of their three previous games before Saturday’s whitewash.

Oxford City 2-0 Dulwich Hamlet 

David Oldfield’s Oxford City side moved above Dulwich Hamlet in the table after a 2-0 home win.

Goals from Joe Iaciofano and Canice Caroll were enough to secure all three points and hand Dulwich a first defeat in six games. 

City have moved up to third, and lead Hamlet on goal difference - by one goal. 

St Albans City 1-3 Hungerford Town 

Hungerford Town consigned St Albans to consecutive defeats for the first time since the season’s opening two games. 

The division’s leading scorer Shaun Jeffers added another from the penalty spot to take his tally to 16 so far. 

Ryan Seager is hot on his heels with 13, including one in today’s game.  Jake Evans and George Smith were also on target. 

Billericay Town 0-1 Hampton & Richmond Borough

Jake Gray’s second half goal was enough to see bottom side Billericay lose a sixth straight game. 

Borough have now won three of their last four completed games - after their home game with Braintree Town was abandoned last week because of floodlight failure. 

Jody Brown’s side currently occupy the division’s sole relegation place and are three points away from safety. 

Best of the rest 

Charley Kendall’s hat-trick was the highlight of Eastbourne Borough 3-1 win over Slough Town.

Ben Harris was on target for the visitors, but it wasn’t enough to stop his side losing for the first time in six games. 

Bath City were 2-1 winners over Concord Rangers.

Goals from Jordan Dyer and Cody Cooke bookended the game, with Danny Green giving Concord hope early in the second half.

It’s a much needed victory for The Romans, who had only won once in seven attempts before Saturday’s game. 

Tommy Wright scored both goals in Havant & Waterlooville’s 2-0 win over Braintree Town.

Paul Doswell’s side are in good form and have picked up 11 points from their last five games. 

Joe Turner scored Tonbridge Angels’ first goal in five games as they drew 1-1 with Chelmsford City.

Turner’s goal gave Tonbridge the lead midway through the second half, but Simeon Jackson levelled the game just after the hour.

A draw does neither team much good, with Chelmsford now without a win in eight games. 

One goal from Joan Luque was good enough to give Maidstone United victory over Chippenham Town.
