Colney Heath made it back-to-back wins and continued their rise up the table after a 3-1 home win over Crawley Green.
Spencer Clarke-Mardel got them off to the perfect start by converting a second-minute penalty after Harry Shepherd had been brought down by goalkeeper Daniel Gould.
And they remained on the front foot for the rest of the first half, although it wasn’t until two minutes from the break before they got their second.
That was courtesy of Shepherd who capped a fine game with a low shot across goal and into the far corner.
Sam Doolan could have had a third but his header hit a post and Greg Shaw had another header cleared off the line.

Crawley made life interesting when Connor Waite pulled one back early in the second half but Chris Blunden settled things with minutes left, pouncing on a rebound after a Dan Westmore shot had been saved.
The result moves them up one place to ninth in the Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division although they do have a game in hand over most of the sides above them.
