Top scorer Simon Woods was on target in both of Wicor’s victories - they have now won 12 of their 13 matches with one draw (and Woods didn’t play in that game).

A Woods double helped Wicor win the first game of a double header 3-2, with Southsea’s prolific Zak Willett netting both replies, writes PAUL OASTLER.

In the reverse fixture, Willett struck again - but Woods, Joe Waterman, Ben Kerr and Luke James gave the runaway leaders a 4-1 success.

AFC Prospect Farm Rangers won both games in their Division 5 double against AC FC.

Having triumphed in just one of their opening nine league games, Prospect claimed 4-0 and 1-0 victories.

Jack Heselwood scored his first goal for the club in the 4-0 success with Leon Porter (2) and Tom Cross also netting.

Curtis Harrison grabbed his first goal for Prospect in the reverse fixture, where veteran keeper Dave Hunter was in fine form to keep another clean sheet.

Leaders AFC Trades continued their fine form with 5-1 and 3-1 victories over Horndean United.

Charlie Smith, Charlie Cane and Harry Gregory netted in the first win, while Smith (4) and Jess Groves were on target in the second - Trades’ 10th win in 11 league games.

Sonny Smith, who is normally a striker, played in goal for Trades in both games.

Fratton Trades Reserves are six points adrift of the leaders with a game in hand after Mitchell Smith and Kameron Thorpe netted in a 2-1 win against Al’s Bar.

Horndean Hawks trounced Freehouse B 6-2 in Division 6 - but only after a very tight first 45 minutes.

Freehouse twice took the lead before half-time, through a Zack Hughes penalty and a lob from Ben Pascoe following a great Harry Croughan through ball.

Hawks, though, twice levelled through Josh Clements and Oliver Murray.

With Freehouse having no substitutes, they tired after the break and Hawks strolled to victory with Murray completing his hat-trick, Clements netting his second and Alfie Merrett also on target.

Bradley Hurt took his seasonal tally to 13 with five in Jubilee’s 16-0 destruction of AFC Trades Reserves.

George Cartmell was another hat-trick hero as the unbeaten leaders showed no mercy in recording their ninth win in 10 matches.

Harrison Cartmell (2), Jack Butcher (2), Lewes Hahn-Griffiths (2), Dan Swanton and Joe Cartmell completed the rout.
