THE big game this week was the top-of-the-table clash in the first division between Camden Tavern and Windmill.
Camden won 3-1 to inflict a first-ever league defeat on Windmill. The Windmill still have the title in their own hands as winning all their remaining games, including the return fixture against Camden, would see them champions.
El Sol took advantage of Windmill’s defeat by moving back above them into second place following their 8-1 dismantling of Acle Wanderers. Sol have played two games more than Windmill and a game more than Camden whom they trail by a point.
Great Yarmouth Town returned to action with a 4-1 win against Rollesby whilst Memphis Belton picked up their first win of the season after gaining revenge for last week’s 6-1 defeat by Hemsby by beating them 2-0.
The final game in the division was an exciting affair that saw Gorleston Albion beat Star & Garter 3-2.
The second division title race is now in the hands of Martham following their 10-0 hammering of Mariners Compass.
This follows more dropped points for Camden Tavern Reserves who let slip a three-goal lead against Venture Albion, who fought back for a point.
Yarmouth White Sox also slipped up in losing 2-1 against Sun FC whilst Bohemians are up to third after trouncing Leisureland 7-0.
The top of the table sees Martham with 37 points from 14 games, White Sox have 37 from 15, Bohs 37 from 17 and Camden 35 from 15.
Elsewhere in the division, Lichfield Arms beat Gorleston Rangers 9-2 and Gorleston Albion Reserves won 4-2 at Carpathians.
