The Cotlandswick Express charges on as Verulamians Rugby Club beat Saracens Amateurs 47-13.
The victory means Vees have won six straight Herts Middlesex One fixtures this year, amended after Hillingdon Abbot withdrew from the league.
Although the early exchanges saw the scores change rapidly with a try from Cameron Craig, that was equalled by one from Saracens who then went ahead with a well-struck penalty.
A second kick made it 13-7 before Verulamians regained the lead 10 minutes from the break.
George Harding, playing at centre this week, wove through to score near to the posts.

By then Vees had regrouped and the forwards began exerting more and more pressure.

Harding converted to put Vees 21-13 ahead at half-time.
That killed off the game as a contest and Vees stepped up a gear.
