Round-up of the weekend action in the Peterborough and District Football League
A blistering start helped fire Deeping United to victory in Saturday's Peterborough League Division Three clash with Wittering Premiair A.
Ian Abbott and Mark Wyer's side scored three times in the opening 18 minutes of the clash at Elsea Park and had added a fourth goal before the break.
The sides then traded a goal apiece after the break as United made amends for sharing the spoils with Harriers in the reverse fixture earlier in the season.
Abbott said: "The first half was really intense. We worked hard and the quality was there as well as we moved the ball quickly.
"We blew them away in the first 20 minutes and were really on it from the off. There was lots of pressure and pace and I was happy with the overall performance."
It took United just nine minutes to break the deadlock as Steve Jucikas collected a loose ball before rifling home a well-struck finish.
Two goals in a minute then put United further in control of the contest as they doubled their lead with Jake Lyon squaring the ball for Markus Turunen to score his first goal of the season for the senior side.
The goal of the game then arrived after 18 minutes as Josh Raven and Lyon linked well down the right before picking out the in-form Daryn Whiteman who volleyed home in style.
Wittering then created two good openings to get back into the contest but were unable to take their chances and United netted a fourth five minutes before the break.
Ben Catanach was this time the provider as he found Whiteman who netted for his 13th goal in the last four games.
Wittering did pull a goal back after the break when Gavin Petruczok scored following a setpiece but United restored their four-goal advantage just past the hour mark as Turunen teed up Jucikas for his second and United's fifth to seal the win.
The victory leaves United in third place, six points behind Casterton with two games in hand.
Casterton shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw with Park Farm Pumas on Saturday as Ryan Brown netted for the Rutland side.
Alex Walton scored a hat-trick as King's Cliffe were 8-3 winners away at Huntingdon Rovers.
Toby Eldred, David Martin, Nathan Senth, Rudi Jurkschat and Jack Gow were also on target for the Hedgehogs.
Player-manager Lewis Morley was red-carded as Stamford Bels shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw with Oundle Town in their Premier Division clash.
Bels had led at the interval thanks to a fine goal from Kieran Evans but they had to battle for a point after Morley was sent off after collecting a second caution with Oundle levelling through Nathan Rudman's equaliser.
