Fareham Town romped to an 8-2 win after coming from behind in fine style against Wessex League division one hosts Pewsey Vale.
A sluggish start by the Reds saw them concede two early goals, before Ash Tattersall and John Wilson levelled it up going into the break.
After Josh Cripps scored within 30 seconds of the restart, the Reds dominated to add further goals from Tattersall, Lee Tigwell, Brett Lilley, Wayne Boud and Luke Douglas.
‘We only took a small squad, so nearly everyone would get 90 minutes,’ said Reds boss Matt Parr.
‘There are a lot of positives we can take from the game.
‘We have produced a number of youngsters who are now coming through at the club.’
An Alex Miroy goal gave Horndean a 1-1 draw against Ryman League Worthing at Five Heads Park.
Miroy put the home side ahead in the 20th minute with a shot from the edge of the area, but the visitors levelled 10 minutes into the second half.
‘We should have won but Lenny Burney and Dan Martin missed good chances,’ said Deans boss Dave Carter.
‘Things are decent, though, with the players looking fit.
‘We know the Wessex League will be tougher this season and we need to up our game, which on the evidence is what we are doing.’
