PARK Street Village hit 11 goals and conceded just two as they started the season in spectacular fashion in the Herts Senior County League Premier Division.
After a thumping 7-1 win on the opening day, PSV clashed with Lemsford on Tuesday, who had also hit seven in their opening fixture.
PSV were missing Matty Day with a hamstring injury and manager Ryan Thompson called up Dave Ross for a start on the right of midfield.

PSV went ahead when Ross found Matt Newman who crossed for Jamie Harper to power home a diving header. The second PSV goal arrived when Andy Murphy was hauled down in the box and Damon Wright converted the penalty.
Lemsford showed they were not out of the contest when they pulled a goal back before half time.
PSV came out firing after the break and Pete Hanson set up Andy Murphy to bury the third goal and restore the two goal cushion. PSV then turned on the style and surprisingly only added one more to their tally when Newman cracked home a great goal.
The final score was 4-1 and completed a sensational opening to the season. Thompson said: "Lemsford are a good side like Wormley. Both will be in the top six come the end of the season but we were just too strong for them. Matty Newman has been an absolute handful in both games. Dave Ross came in on the right side of midfield and he was superb."
On Saturday PSV got off to a flying start at Toulmin Drive as they dissected Wormley Rovers right from the kick off.
Gary Warn settled any opening day nerves with a fizzing left-foot volley for 1-0 and Damon Wright made it 2-0 from the penalty spot after Andy Murphy was felled.
After the interval Matt Newman fired a stunning hat trick including a header and a wonderful chip shot. Murphy also chipped in a fine goal and Matty Day got in on the act to seal a remarkable 7-1 win. The Wormley goal came from the penalty spot with PSV manager Thompson less than impressed by the decision which went against defender Chris Day.
PSV are short on midfielders due to holidays when they host Codicote at Toulmin Drive on Saturday before going away to Met Police Bushey on Bank Holiday Monday.
