High-scoring players and teams dominated the latest round of fixtures in the Herts Advertiser Sunday League.

Six Bells' Jack Read. Six Bells' Jack Read.

Jack Read led the way with all six as the aptly-named Six Bells won 6-1 against Harpenden Athletic in Division One with Ian Ward getting the consolation goal.

It took Read up to 13 for the season.

Following him was Harpenden Colts’s Edi Bolciu and James Ewington of Skew Bridge, both of whom scored five.

Bolciu’s quintet came as Colts triumphed 14-1 over Royston Rangers Res in Division Four.

Man of the match Ali Dearman chipped in with three, there were doubles for Darren Smith and Kanyin Fagarde, while Tony Perreira and Ben Cobley completed the scoring.

Jon Hart scored for Rangers.

Ewington’s goals were part of a comfortable 12-0 win for Skew Bridge in round two of the Herts Ad Knockout Cup.

Tom Collins and Mark Hitchcock helped themselves to two each, with Ben Dawes and Ben Warren also on target.

Completing the big scorers were Frankie Jowle and Daniel James who hit the net four times each.

Jowle scored his in Blackberry Jacks’ 8-1 win over The Compasses back in Division One, and he also had a hand in three of the other four goals.

Wael Benatim (two) and George Dale and Naseem Shahbab were the men to notch those efforts.

James was the one man to trouble the scorers for St Albans Irish in Division Two as they defeated title-chasing Snug Bar 4-1.

Staying in Division Two, goals from Caner Ozgul and John Malone gave Welwyn Warriors a 2-1 win against Phoenix Res, Jack Taylor their scorer, and the remaining two games in Division One both finished 2-2.

Two goals from Aidan Golds was enough for a point for Blacksmiths against NBOB Res, Daryl Hall and Max Evans their scorers, while a double from James Elliott helped Skew Bridge Res to a point with Bradmore Rovers.

While Skew Bridge’s first team were winning in the second round of the Knockout Cup, Brookmans Park were making the semi-final with a 6-2 win over Town Inn.

Callum Baylis and Carl Webb both got doubles and there was one each for Steve Newton and Dan Hart.

Another quarter-final, this time in the Herts Ad Intermediate Cup, saw Tansley win 2-1 against Facelad. John Woods got their goals with Darren O’Brien on target for Facelad.

Cain Davey and Andy Sears-Black scored as NBOB and AFC Rangers drew 1-1 in the Premier Division.

Neither high-riding Royston Rangers nor AFC Welwyn could find the back of the net in Division Three and there was just a Bradley Irving effort separating TNF from Veer Dhara

Chris Coleman, Dexter Simpson, Paul Gillard and Ian Shaw all scored for Oaks in a 4-2 victory over New Greens while Athletico Quat and BWSC enjoyed a thrilling 4-4 draw.

Quat’s scorers were Jon Cavaree, Scott Cockfield, Mo Hassen and Darren Cavaree while BWSC replied through Luke Starnes, Mark Starnes, Craig Ashurst and Matt Hudson.

There was another eight-goal classic back in Division Four as The Wrestlers won 5-3 over St Albans Warriors. Ashley Kingston netted a hat-trick to stay top.

Second-placed CHL won their ninth game on the trot, defeating Blackboy 4-2 with goals from Sam Dove, Jack Dowling, Jason Nicolaou and an own goal.

Brookmans Park ‘A’ threw away a 2-0 lead when they lost 3-2 to Hatfield Seniors but Blacksmiths Res recorded a fine 4-1 away win over Dagmar 1984 with goals from James Moule, Jamie Bill, Robert Forty and Nathan Ravenscroft-Fearon.
