Lewes stretched their lead at the top of the Bostik League South table to eight points after a comfortable 4-0 win at second-bottom Molesey on Tuesday night.

Ronnie Conlon gave the Rooks an early 6th minute lead at Walton Road and Jonte Smith doubled that 9 minutes later.

That was that until the final 8 minutes when Billy Medlock and then sub Marcus Elliott doubled the tally.

Greenwich Borough moved into fourth spot, two points behind second-placed Corinthian-Casuals and third-placed Carshalton Athletic, after a 2-1 success at Sittingbourne.

Jack Barham broke the deadlock at Woodstock Park to give the visitors the lead 2 minutes after half-time.

Dan Parkinson equalised after 66 minutes, but Omari Hibbert won it for Boro 13 minutes from time.

The season can`t end soon enough for bottom-markers Shoreham after they recorded a 30th defeat of the campaign – 6-1 at the Shepherd Neame Stadium against Faversham Town.

Mo Dawodu and Renford Tenyue gave the hosts a 2-0 interval lead and then Dawodu and Danny Walder added two more before Alex Laing replied for the Mussels on 64 minutes.

Luke Griffiths 4 minutes later and Harry Stannard on 88 minutes added to Faversham`s tally after that.

South Park made it six games without a win after losing 4-1 at the Altira Park Stadium against Herne Bay.

Miles Cornwell gave Bay a great start with a goal inside 2 minutes and Tom Carlton on 39 minutes and Jake Embery on 44 minutes stretched their advantage before James McElligott reduced the deficit right on half-time.

Embery scored the only second half goal on 71 minutes to make it 4-1.

Third-bottom Ashford United were beaten 3-0 at Culver Road by Horsham in the evening`s other game.

A George Landais penalty gave the Hornets the breakthrough a minute before the half-time interval.

Curtis Gaylor after 64 minutes and Henry Watson 11 minutes from time settled the points.
