Puyol Pants Down opened up a two-point lead at the top of the Hemel Hempstead Leisure Leagues Premiership on Sunday as they secured a thumping victory over Chicken Kiev.

Goalkeeper Ryan Cole was awarded man of the match for his performance between the posts for Puyol Pants Down as he kept a clean sheet in the 6-0 win.

The big margin of victory also gives Puyol a vital advantage on goal difference over second-placed 2 Goals 1 Cup.

The latter, who were in action against Fat Dads this week, trailed from the start and found themselves 6-5 behind at half-time.

They regrouped during the break but Fat Dads proved superior in strength and experience, and with the safe hands of Richard Potter in goal, they celebrated their first league win, 13-9.

Championship side Fred West Ham maintained the pressure on table-topping AEK Hemel, with a 7-5 win against third-placed Butterflies FC.

Goalkeeper Josh Sear was impressive as always, while Aidan Edwards was named man of the match.

Jobseeker’s Allowance secured their biggest ever goal tally in their fixture against Mun City, with the match finishing 13-5 in their favour.

Iliass Bendefa produced an entertaining display of skills and tricks, while also netting the majority of the goals for his team.

The result keeps Jobseeker’s in fourth place, although they will have their sights set on third place by the end of the season, as they trail Butterflies by just one point.

The Fellowship hit an incredible 15 goals in their points match with Gremio Kiev All-Stars.

Skipper Andy Jeffreys returned from a week out to net a hat-trick, while man of the match Pete Knightingale came close to the goals record, scoring seven in total.

Meanwhile, Hemel Elite faced Championship leaders AEK Hemel for the first time in their points match.

The game was tight throughout and the scores were level at 2-2 at the half-time break.

Elite captain Chris Wyatt was reliable and resilient in goal for his team, although he lacked support from his defence at times and AEK inevitably took their chances to gain the lead.

Man of the match Charley Yorke provided a hat-trick of assists for his team-mates, helping the boys in grey to a 4-2 win.
