New star Alex Olcot was on the mark to help AC Mill Hill open their account for the season in the 4-2 win over Faithfold B at Chase Lodge.
Leading marksman Ben Zloof was also on target, netting his third of the season, with James Levy and Mark Truman finishing the job.
The visitors started at a much higher tempo than last week and dominated the early part of the game. They knocked the ball around nicely and Levy was on hand to give them an early 1-0 lead.
Faithfold hit back to lead 2-1 at the break after two excellent free-kicks from Ben Loftman.
Mill Hill created plenty of chances in the second half and although the equaliser seemed to take an eternity - Truman eventually bundled the ball in.
They pressed on from there, scoring two goals in the last 10 minutes, with Olcot and Zloof clinching the points.
Mill Hill manager Joe Levy told JC Sport: "The most pleasing thing for me was that the boys kept plugging away and never let their heads drop. We know we can play good football - we just need to do the basics right and let the quality of the team shine through.
"Credit to Faithfold - they played some good football and the game was played in the right fashion despite difficulties with the original ref."
Faithfold boss Dan Yoss told JC Sport: "I'm disappointed how the first two games have panned out. We're doing everything to ensure we'll turn it around against Athletico Bilbaum, including a heavy fitness session on Thursday night.
"The boys gave it they're all for 70 minutes....next week I assure you it will be 90 if Thursday is anything to go by!"
