Plenty of action, plenty of goals and plenty of talking points after today’s 7 games in the SCEFL First Division!

Kennington kept up their excellent start to the season, winning for the 3rd time from 3 games in the league and handing a potential promotion rival a heavy loss in the process.

Callum Peck got the ball rolling with a 24th minute opener before Gary Lockyer hit a double and Tom Scorer grabbed the other as the Ton beat Rusthall 4-0 at Homelands.

Holmesdale were also conclusive winners as they beat Sutton Athletic 5-1 at Oakley Road.

Jake Britnell, Shameek Farrell, Sam Adenola and Ola Rabiu were all among the goals as the Dale made it back-to-back wins to move up to 4th.

Snodland Town also won for the second time running but they were made to do it the hard way, needing to come from behind to win at Bridon Ropes.

Ropes led at the break thanks to an early Jack Kirby effort before Snodland came back in the second half to win 2-1 with goals from Omar Elmantawy and Brad Webb. The defeat keeps Bridon ropes at the bottom of the table while Snodland move up to 3rd.

Rochester United are in second place after they came from 2-0 down to earn a point at home to Stansfeld.

The visitors gained their advantage from a Ryan Hassan opener and Joe Minter free-kick before the Spartans rallied late on earning a draw thanks to goals from Max Ciano and Harrison Hume.

The second of four 2-1 results came at Cobdown as Lewisham Borough won against Greenways despite going behind.

Faria Maganga scored first for the Greens with just half an hour left to play. There was still enough time for Jonathon Tadafe to net a double though and with the win Borough remain unbeaten and move into the top 6.

SC Thamesmead picked up their first points of the season, 3 of them, with a 2-1 win at FC Elmstead.

Ryan Solan scored his first goal for the Acre while Mayowa Olufeko kept up his record of scoring in each game for SC Thamesmead by netting the winner, following an earlier Antonio Gonnella equaliser.

Kent Football United were also 2-1 winners and came from behind to get that win with Meridian VP taking a 27th minute lead at the Efes Stadium.

Javlon Campbell got both the goals for the hosts giving them their first win of the season and a well deserved 3 points.
