PHC Chiswick 4 Eastcote 2
Eastcote's slim title ambitions all but disappeared as they saw a 2-0 interval lead turn into a disastrous 4-2 defeat at PHC Chiswick.
The Boars seemed on course for another comfortable win following the previous week's 9-0 mauling of Maid-enhead.
Gary Town and Alex Stobbart converted two of several chances to put the visitors in control at Chiswick, who are fourth from bottom in the Middlesex, Berks, Bucks & Oxon Regional League.
Adam Mulholland fed David Cooper who hit Town with a first time pass and he flicked the ball over the advancing keeper.
Other opportunities went begging before Stobbart deflected home at the far post to capitalise on more good work from Mulholland and Cooper, but it should have been at least 4-0 and Chiswick made them pay.
Eastcote suddenly switched offafter the break and Simon Samuels received a yellow card as everything that could go wrong did, as the hosts netted four times without reply to steal the points.
Eastcote remain second but they are now six points adrift of Milton Keynes who also have a game in hand.
They host second bottom Tring on Saturday at 1.30pm at Kings College Road.
That was one of numerous appalling results for the club's men's teams who managed just two wins between them and one of those was a walkover, as well as a draw and six other defeats.
The Twos were thumped 12-1 at home to high flying Sevenoaks with Mike Pell the solitary scorer, the Threes won 5-2 at Staines thanks to Paul Marchant (2), Raja Kohli (2) and Gabriel Emery and the Simbas managed a 2-2 draw to stay top, but elsewhere it was a sorry tale.
Eastcote 1 Tulse Hill & Dulwich 4 TWO early goals left Eastcote ladies with too much to do as second-placed Tulse Hill & Dulwich handed them their fourth defeat of the South League Division Two campaign.
The visitors found the net from two short corners to leave Eastcote some-what shell-shocked, although they recovered well, creating some good chances before one eventually paid off, Sian Bailey converting from close range after a Claire Devereaux shot from a corner was not cleared.
Eastcote had it all to play for in the second half yet too many stray passes in the final third of the pitch left the visiting keeper with little to do, unlike her opposite number Zoe Goring who made a series of great saves until the constant pressure paid off and Dulwich scored a third goal.
The Reds were then caught on the break as they tried to salvage a draw, which left them in sixth place with a trip to ninth-placed Sunbury to come on Saturday.
The Twos remained top of the Middlesex Premier Division with a 7-0 win over Harrow, the goals coming from six different players - Tracey Gustad (2), Fi Chandler, Leanne Parkinson, Meg Williams, Karen Brookes and Captain Kim Spencer-Pell.
A Kaz Smith brace kept the Threes top of Middlesex Division One as they saw off Aces 2-1, while the Fours lost 4-1 to Hampstead & Westminster VI, Anna Tebbs with the consolation.
