JOSEPH de Souza bagged a double hat-trick as Hares under-eights hammered Potton Colts 11-0.
Louis Clayton added a treble, with Owen Hughes and Alex Starks also on target in an emphatic victory.
Hares' under-15 side got back to winning ways with a 2-1 win against Trident Wasps.
A scrappy affair throughout saw Hares playing some good football in the first half, and some persistent chasing down from DJ Winkworrth was rewarded when he pounced on an error to send Hares in one-up at half time.
Trident were then allowed to get back into the game, but a neat finish from Daniel Banks-Smith gave Hormead the lead once more and Hares managed to hold Trident at bay for the rest of the game to take the points.
The under-seven A side entertained Hatfield at home and set off at blistering pace from the whistle with Jack Richardson slotting the ball home in a mere 22 seconds.
