Alex Campana and Mitchell Weiss bagged a brace apiece as Kings Langley continued their title quest with 4-1 win at Cockfosters – with the side hitting their hundredth league goal of the season in the process.
The absence of three regular starters meant a change in formation for Kings, while a rock hard pitch proved unpredictable.
However, one moment of class was enough to give the visitors a half-time lead when a perfectly flighted right wing cross from Danny Hutchins saw Campana prod the ball home at the far post.
Kings refined their long ball tactics after the break, and the middle 15 minutes of the half resulted in a flurry of goals that defined the match.
Ollie Cox won the ball just inside the home half, found Hutchins on the right, and another superb cross was met on the half volley by Campana for his second goal.
Cockfosters immediately pulled one back when a free-kick by Ben Spaul deflected off the wall to deceive Charlie Crowley, but the response to that was just as swift.
A 45-yard pass by Jonny Munday found Campana, and his diagonal cross saw a brave header by Weiss beat keeper Scott Parker for the landmark hundredth goal.
Kings then wrapped up the proceedings when Callum Adebiyi found Campana on the wing and his through-ball was seized upon by Weiss to keep the two strikers level in the goal stakes.
