A hat-trick from JAKE GILBERT inspired the Baums to a handsome victory in east London as they ended Glenthorne B's unbeaten run.
Baums boss Mark Pasha told JC Sport: "Overall a very well contest game throughout, with really 10 frenetic minutes in the first half, which saw the Baums score three and Glenthorne have a penalty saved, separating the teams.
"The treacherous journey to the east was well worth its perils, with Gilbert in imperious form once more, linking up well with Green who continues to improve on his way back from injury.
"There were also rock solid displays from Roth and Bier in the centre of the park combined with a very well organised back line which frustrated Glenthrone as they pressed on throughout. Solid, professional and baumtastic ... like an ice cold pickled herring."
Thornes joint-player-manager Liam Stein told JC Sport: "We're very disappointed with 10 minutes during the first half, but credit to Bilbaum as they capitalised on our mistakes. We have to dust ourselves off and get back to winning ways in the Morrison next week."
