Also at home were the 18 North and after a high scoring game saw the North eventually run out 7-4 winners over Oxhey Utd. Leading the way was Archie Hall with a hat-trick and then came Matt Breeze with a brace whilst both Robert Devine and Harrison Gates got a goal apiece.
Adam(Crisp) Pringle scored the only goal for the 18 South as they lost 7-1 at home to Abbots Youth Red.
The 16 EJA took part in a close an entertaining game at AFC Dunstable which finally ended in a 0-0 draw. Both sides created chances and they both had goals disallowed for offside and in the final ten minutes Dunstable hit the post and then Sam Galatis the Saints keeper tipped a cracking strike onto the bar and then onto the post. The Saints though held on for a draw with the man of the match going to James Lawrence for leading the line and tirelessly supporting the Saints pressing attacks.
Away to Cassiobury Rangers were the 16 West and after a very close match saw the Saints lose by the odd goal in a 4-3 scoreline. Scoring for the West were Aaron Peter, Adam Johnson plus one own goal.
The 15 West playing EB Lions certainly got their claws out as the West went onto win 6-3 with five different goalscorers. Scoring the goals were Beau Birne 2, Myles Donkin, Millan Sanderson, Alex Veizi and Matthew Willett.
Another team having a fine 6-3 win were the 15 Orient who played Evergreen at home, but Orient had to do the hard way as they were 2-0 down early on. They hit back though with five goals in 20 minutes with Samuel Beasley scoring a marvellous hat-trick and Tom Cox and Josh Haworth one each to give the Orient a 5-2 lead at half time. In the second half Evergreen pulled a goal back but Samuel Beasley struck again with his fourth goal of the match to make the final score 6-3. The Orient were just devastating in their attacking play with some clinical finishing.
Away to Watford Youth Black saw the 15 North rattle up a 7-1 win with goals from Arthur Corke 2, Max Robertson 2, Ollie Ring plus two from man of the match Dan Ludwig.
A off colour and disjointed performance from the 15 East saw them lose 5-3 at home to Cassiobury Rangers with the three goals for the East being scored by Anton Nicholas Sahota, Connor Robinson and Nasir Zaman.
In the county cup at home were the 15 Central and they were playing Lemsford Lions and they showed their claws early on by taking the lead after only four minutes. Orient though hit back and turned the game around to go in at the break leading 6-1 with goals from Matt Roome 2, Jack Percy 2 whilst Joshua Penning and Daniel Onochie-Williams both scored one each. In the second half Daniel Onochie-Williams hit a superb hat-trick whilst super sub Callum Cornish scored two for Central to run away 11-1 winners. There some great individual performances but it was Jack Percy who got the nod for turning the game around early on.
The Under 15 EJA played at home to Hitchin town the only team to beat them so far, this season. the boys soon put the visitors on the back foot and early chances fell to Bradley Young, Josh Forster and Jude Evans but on 20 minutes a great ball from Harry Brady found Jack McShane on the edge of the box and the striker made no mistake with a well-placed shot into the far corner. the second half started as the first with the young saints on top and the Hitchin custodian having to make a couple of smart saves from Benny Stacey, but it wasn't long before the second goal came when a well weighted through ball from Ben Kirby was met by Jason Fati who rounded the out-rushing keeper to make it 2-0.
Hitchin Town came back into the game in the last 10 mins getting a goal back but the boys held on for a well-deserved 2-1 win with Jamie (the Brazilian) willing picking up the man of the match.
Away to Echoes Amber saw the 14 Boreal win 3-1 with goals from Jack Carmichael, Tom Durrant and Jack O'Rahilly whilst Ralph Murray was named man of the match.
In the county cup saw the 14 South have not much joy as they lost 5-0 to Edgware Town and so the South's winning run ended against a top EJA side. The young Saints fought hard but just could that breakthrough although they did look dangerous in attack. The man of the match went to Sam Basilea for his tremendous tackling and also for reading the game well and so he fully deserved the man of the match award.
At home to Berkhamsted Raiders Orange were the 14 East Yellow and they had to settle for a point after a 1-1 draw and scoring the Yellow's goal was Krishten Cavaroee whilst Liam Karunanayake picked up the man of the match title.
There was not much joy for the 14 North in the county cup as they were playing London Maccabi Lions at home and the visitors play two divisions above the North and they gradually went down 9-2. Tyler Cadiou-McCarthy scored the Saints first goal and Joe Knee who was also man of the match netted the second.
A convincing 4-0 win by the 14 East Blue away at Whetstone Wanderers Leopards saw the East Blue stay top of the green division with Lucas Osborn scoring two goals and Dan Gant and Joe Stone both one apiece.
The 13 North playing Omonia Green in the league cup made hard work of the match in normal time but in extra time it was a different story as at the final whistle they had run out 3-0 winners. Finlay Eames-Illingworth scored the first goal with a 30 yard free kick whilst Jake Berry scored the second after a great turn and shot with Ben Freestone scoring the third with a thoroughly well-deserved goal.

After the 15 EJA had beaten Cheshunt last week in the cup 7-1 they might have thought this week's league might be easy, but it was not to be as in the end it was a very close match and they only just hanged onto all three points with a 2-1 victory.
