Four-midable AC Mill Hill march on

Norton Road Baldock, Hertfordshire
leaders AC Mill Hill boosted their title hopes with an easy 4-0 win over Boca.
Two goals from player-manager Joe Levy plus one apiece from Adam Lenz and Ben Grabiner eased them home.
With reports of the score reaching double figures and many players missing for, the outlook did not look good for Boca especially after three minutes when goalkeeper Ryan Monk pulled of a stunning save from a half volley 12 yards out. But Boca fought all the way from top to bottom to show the doubters that they can give anyone a match.
However, Mill Hill forged ahead with an early strike from Lenz and Grabiner doubled the lead shortly after.
Boca had a few chances to score themselves as the dangerous Jamie Weinrich put in a few deadly crosses which tested the AC Mill Hill defence.
The hosts looked tired in the second half but started to play the ball around like and Lenz came off the bench to make an immediate impact with a stunning 25-yard strike into the top corner. Levy finished the scoring with a bullet header from a corner.
The scoreline would have been even more emphatic were it not for the heroics of Monk, who was once again in superb form, making around 12 top-class saves in the match, both from long and close range.
A delighted Levy told JC Sport: "There was definitely a lot of rustiness to shake off having not played for a month or so. Fitness levels have dropped after the winter break and it was tough going on an astroturf pitch."
"Credit must go to Boca who defended well. We have played teams who are not as good as them this season and I am unsure whether their league position is a true reflection of their ability."
