Six goals from hot-shot striker Danny Hunter could not prevent Mun City from slipping to a heavy defeat at the hands of Norfolk & Chance in this week’s round of Hemel Hempstead Leisure Leagues matches.

City were only one goal down at half-time, but despite the efforts of Hunter and keeper Callum Wright, Norfolk extended their lead after the break.

Striker Seb Hansen netted an impressive hat-trick and helped secure a 13-6 win for his side.

Meanwhile, 2 Goals 1 Cup were in an action against title holders Chicken Kiev and recorded a 9-6 victory courtesy of a man of the match display from midfielder Tom Davidson.

The Smeagles’ midfield dynamo Jack Samuel helped his team to a 6-2 win over experienced Premiership rivals The Fellowship, while The Jackson 5-a-side were edged out by Puyol Pants Down.

The teams went in level at half-time, and Ben Hawkins’ sublime long range volley gave Jackson hope of taking something from the league leaders.

However, they could not stop man of the match Ryan Jeffrey as he netted four goals for Puyol, who continue their 100 per cent league record.

Cheeseham United’s fixture against Fred West Ham, meanwhile, was close throughout and there was just one goal separating the teams at the end of the first half.

Fred West Ham stepped up a gear after the break, though, and two goals from man of the match Mark Stoker helped to secure a 3-0 victory.

Hemel Elite were without captain Chris Wyatt, but it did not stop them bagging a 14-7 win over Wanderers FC.

Wanderers captain Billy Tolhurst made some excellent saves, but Liam Cowing was on top form on the night and helped himself to four goals.

Elsewhere, Gremio and Jobseekers Allowance shared the points in an entertaining 5-5 draw.

Jobseekers keeper and man of the match Amjad Mahmood was impressive between the posts to keep the two sides level on points in the Championship table.

Championship high-fliers AEK Hemel maintained their 100 per cent points record as captain Jack Evans guided his side to a 10-4 victory against Butterflies FC.
