MELBOURN'S chances of finishing top of Division Three are now in their own hands as they put in a superb performance away to their closest rivals.
The first half was a scrappy affair with Elsenham battling hard to maintain their unbeaten home record.
George Storey came closest to opening the scoring for Panthers as he found himself clean through on goal with just the 'keeper to beat. Unfortunately his well struck shot rose a little too high and crashed off the crossbar.

At the other end Ryan Lees, Andrew Houghton, Andrew Chitty and Robbie Dingwell were all strong in defence as Elsenham's best effort was a rising shot from the Elsenham midfielder which flew just over the bar as half time approached.
Storey and Eades both had half decent chances which the Elsenham keeper saved well however it was Eades who broke the deadlock with a well timed shot which flew into the top corner.
Storey made it 2-0 on 49 minutes with a great shot into the top corner from the edge of the penalty area.
They added a third as the hard working Sam Potterill laid a square ball for the grateful Eades to finish off well with a few minutes to go, and Lees added a fourth with a powerful header from a Storey corner in the final few seconds
