The top two in King's Lynn Sunday League Division One, Terrington and Chilvers, continue to plough towards a final-day title showdown as they both registered clean sheets and big wins.

Chilvers, currently holding pole position by four points, saw off Lynn Napier by eight goals to nil. Neil Goodbourn nabbed a treble and Liam Bowley found his form again with a brace. Michael Ellwood, Danny Jezeph and Jack Johnson also scored.

Terrington kept pace and improved their goal difference massively, by brushing aside Wisbech Wanderers 11-0. Robert Palmer and Matt Prudence both scored four apiece. The other goals came from Andy Prior, Simon Bird and an unfortunate Wisbech player.

FANG dropped two points away at William Burt, who continue to improve. Sam Hewitt gave Burt the lead against his former club, but FANG equalised in the 87th minute through an own goal from Burt keeper Rob Bunting when a penalty hit the post and went in off his back.

Vulcatech finally got themselves a positive result, and an emphatic one at that, as they beat Horsepigs 7-2 away from home. D Spalding and D Coates notched for 'Pigs. But Shane Crown grabbed two goals, with the other five split between M Kerns, Tommy Littlewood, Dan Ford, C Smith and Kenzie Corbett.
