Chilvers closed in on the King's Lynn Sunday League Division One title with a 3-0 win over CSKA Emneth.
If Chilvers win their next two games, against FANG and Gaywood Park Rangers (GPR), they will be champions before they face last year's title-winners Terrington on the last day. Liam Bowley signalled his return to form with a brace, and the third goal was added by Kevin Leggett.
Terrington can only keep winning and hope the table-toppers slip up, and they did just that against a resurgent Lynn Napier side, digging out a tough 4-2 win. Sam Moses and Johnny Marlow netted for The Nap, with Terrington scoring through Ian Prudence, Steve Girdlestone (penalty) and a Robert Palmer brace.
William Burt kept up their long unbeaten run, stretching back to January 5, with a comeback win against GPR. Chris Green and Nathan Mitchell claimed the first and last goals of the game for Park, sandwiched either side of two Sam Hewitt strikes and a close-range Ben Ridgwell finish.
Knowing they are safe from relegation, Horsepigs played with ultimate freedom in dismantling Wisbech Wanderers 9-0. Dan Spalding and Sam Hanslip got singles, braces were scored by John Murphy and Craig Dickson and a hat-trick was bagged by Matty Willis.

Vulcatech and England's Hope traded blows in a close affair, one edge by the latter 2-1. Danny Littlewood notched for Vulcatech, but the game was won by strikes from John Uddin and Paul Richardson.
Hunstanton now stand only 12 points away from the Division Two title after a convincing 11-0 demolition job at Fleet. Another clean sheet for the league's meanest defence was backed up by the-now league's most potent strike force with the goals coming from Tom Raisbury (4), Lewis Batterbee (4) and Karl Tansley (3).

Should Tilney win their games in hand, they will sit five points behind Long Sutton in the race for the second promotion spot. They claimed all three points in a 6-3 win over a hard-to-beat Flitcham Bell side. The league's top marksman Dan Fuller added three to his season's tally for Flitcham, but it wasn't enough as Rob Precey matched his hat-trick and was backed up by goals from Danny Birlingham, Luke Hurrell and Evaldes Pinelis.
CR Eastern Province tore apart the basement boys Hustlers in a 14-0 rout. Curtis Morais and Brandon Wilmore both scored thrice, with braces for Rob Koziel and unfortunate Hustler players. The other goals came from Luke Mascall, David Rogers, Connor Walker and Jody Rolfe.
March Saracens thumped Maids Head 7-1. Dayne Moore and Ash Taylor both scored twice, with single goals for Jermaine Watson, Luke Young and Karl Summersgill.
