Redbridge and Ilford sealed victories while Tower Hamlets and Clapton fell to defeats in the Essex Senior League.
Tony Martin and Hassan Nalbant both netted braces as Redbridge thrashed Enfield 6-0 at Oakside Stadium.
Martin netted the opener after ten minutes before Tom Harvey doubled that lead three minutes before the break, and it was three early in the second half as Connor Okus netted.
Nalbant then added goals on 67 and 74 minutes before Martin completed the scoring in stoppage time to hand them back to back victories.
The Foxes grabbed all three points at Cricklefield after a 2-1 victory over West Essex. Jerold Cobblah gave the hosts an 11th minute lead but Callum Bloss levelled for the visitors nine minutes later.

In stoppage time Jack West finished well to seal another win for Stansted.
