This week's eight Kent Invicta League fixtures saw no fewer than 40 goals scored with leaders
Hollands & Blair, Sheppey United and Seven Acre & Sidcup all winning 4-3.
Blair kept their 100% record after edging Meridian VP out at Star Meadow thanks to Jordan Gallagher's 89th minute winner. Richard Dimmock's side were up for the battle from the first whistle and led 2-1 at the break despite having young keeper Conor Vincent stretchered off after 21 minutes. Rob Denness, James McDonald and Bryan Greenfield were the other Blair scorers while Gary Philimore, Dominic Elmes and Joe Neal, a penalty, were on target for the visitors.
Glebe are three points behind in second after a 1-1 home draw against Crockenhill and they were indebted to Jack Highwood's 94th minute equaliser after Jack Bath had given the Crocks a first-half lead.
Lee Hill's Seven Acre are up to third after their 4-3 home win over Bearsted but were hanging on in the closing stages having led 4-0 thanks to goals from Steve Weatherley, Anthony Collins, Tony Ecuyer and Tony Hill with just six minutes remaining. Then Andy Williams, Rob Lyall and Sam Flisher all netted for the Bears to set up a nervy finale.
The points were shared at the Lindsey Field where
Eltham Palace twice led through Bradley Killick and Daryl Dylan but Lydd Town grabbed a 2-2 draw after Carlum MacLeod equalised ten minutes from time. Matt Hadlum had struck the Lydders first leveller. 
A see-saw contest at the Ladywell Arena saw Kevin Hake's Ites win by the odd-goal in seven after trailing 3-2 to
Lewisham Borough at the break. Lamarl Hubbard, Larnre Adebayo and Ross Cable were the Boro marksmen while Baff Addae (2), Russell Jeffery and Adam Porter hit back for the Islanders.
Rusthall were the biggest winners of the day after thumping bottom club Kent Football United 5-1 at Jockey Farm. Liam McGarry had given the visitors the lead before Rob Guile (2), Jonny Elwood, Greg Nicholson and Calum Hopkins struck for the Rustics.
A second Chris Mirlees penalty at the death earned
Sutton Athletic a 3-2 victory against Bridon Ropes who finished with 10 men after their keeper was dismissed at Charlton Park Lane. Albert Akinremi got both Ropes goals while Danny Ball was the other Sutts goalscorer.
Finally
Orpington and Gravesham Borough shared the points following their 1-1 draw at Green Court Road. Chris McDermott gave the visitors a 13th minute lead but Alex Chambers levelled matters before half-time.
