Hollands & Blair remain top of the KIL table thanks to a 96th minute free-kick from Bryan Greenfield that finally saw off the challenge of a plucky Eltham Palace outfit. James McDonald put Blair ahead in the first-half but Charlie McCarthy's side fought back with two goals in two second-half minutes through Tim Adekambi and Bradley Killick (penalty). McDonald restored parity with his 21st of the season before Greenfield broke Palace hearts deep into stoppage time.
Stefan Wright and Albert Akinremi put Bridon Ropes two-up at the break but Lydd Town fought back to take the points and hold onto second spot thanks to Gary Lockyer (2) and Barrington Beaney.
Both Sutton Athletic and Sheppey United remain in third and fourth place after respective 2-1 wins at Orpington and Kent Football United. Ben Williams and Aiden Pursglove were the Sutts scorers against the O's with Joe Shaw replying while at Glentworth Sports Ground Baff Addae and Dan Bradshaw were on target for the away side before Sam McNeils outfit, who missed a 72nd minute penalty, reduced the deficit through Dominic Ryan.
Bearsted are up to fifth after their 4-1 victory over Rusthall at Otham Sports Ground. Sam Porter put the Bears ahead early on and the Peter Williams helped himself to a hat-trick before Callum Hopkins grabbed a late consolation for the Rustics.
Another hat-trick, this time from Ryan Golding saw Glebe to a 3-1 triumph at Seven Acre & Sidcup who replied through Anthony Fenech while both Dan Nash and Marcus Heddon scored two apiece as Gravesham Borough went 4-0 in the first-half against Lewisham Borough at the Ladywell Arena. Tyrone Palmer pulled one back for the home side but it was too little too late.
Finally the points were shared at Wested Meadow as Crockenhill drew 1-1 with Meridian VP, Colm Deane (Crocks) and Steve Kempster (Meridian) getting the goals.
