Great Chishill 7 Hempstead United 2
Great Chishill ensured they reached Christmas undefeated, with a goal-fest against Hempstead.
Their attacking football was impressive from the start, but they had to be patient before they managed their first goal.
It finally arrived in the 20th minute, when Steve McGee was gifted a free shot, after picking up a dreadful clearance from the visiting keeper.

The hosts' only real trouble was dealt with when Oli Gardiner cleared a shot on the line, and they were well worth their four-goal half-time lead.
Elliot Drury doubled his tally early in the second half with a close range header, before Chishill gave some of their substitutes a chance to impress.
A lapse in concentration allowed a visiting striker to run through, reducing Chishill's lead to 5-1, but the home side continued to dominate play with some neat football and they always looked capable of scoring more.
McGee grabbed his second with a close range shot, before a spectacular long range effort gave the away side another consolation.
But their misery was completed by an own goal to make it 7-2 before the end and if Chishill can repeat their form in the second half of the season, they will look strong candidates for promotion.
Chishill: Gallagher; R Drury, Dunsden, Gardiner, Bramwell; Fitgerald, E Drury, Tyler, Edey; McGee, J Drury. Subs: Burrows, Wilson, Radford.
