....the campaign in a 1-1 draw at another unbeaten side, Newport Pagnell Town on Tuesday night.
Richard Armstrong’s Swans opener midway through the first period was cancelled out by Conor Washington’s ninth of the season in the second half.
Cogenhoe United joined St Ives on the sixteen-point mark after a 7-1 demolition of top flight new boys Harborough Town at Compton Park.
Ben Barton gave the promoted side the lead in this one but by the break two Darren Frost goals and one from Jamie Russell had given the home side the initiative.
Frost completed his hat-trick after the break and was joined on the scoresheet by Josh Urquhart, Lewis Leslie and Sam Heavey.
Holbeach United boast the division’s only perfect record after winning 3-1 at Deeping Rangers, whose defeat was their first in the league since January.
Dan Flack, Jonny Allen and Robbie Harris netted for the Tigers with David Burton-Jones on the scoresheet for Rangers.
Quorn remain unbeaten after a 2-0 win at Long Buckby. This one featured the fastest goal of the night scored by Kris Nurse after 38 seconds and a second from Luke Edwards midway through the opening half gave the Leicestershire side the points.
There were contrasting fortunes for the division’s two new managers. Daren Young picked up his first points as Stewarts & Lloyds boss since returning to the Foundrymen helm as his side won 2-1 at Shepshed Dynamo, who lost their unbeaten home record despite scoring first through Rob Mulonga. Alan Campbell and Paul Caswell won it for S&L.
Wellingborough Town`s caretaker boss Craig Adams saw his charges beaten 4-0 at Desborough Town, whose scorers were former Doughboys Adam Randall and Jon Mitchell with two and Jack Burrows.
A Liam Tunstall spot-kick 8 minutes into stoppage time gave Sleaford Town a 1-1 home draw with Peterborough Northern Star, who hit the front through Nick Davey, while Irchester United bounced back from their weekend drubbing to claim their second point of the season in a 1-1 stalemate at AFC Kempston where a Josh Burge opener for the Romans was quickly cancelled out by an Ash Farmer reply for the Walnut Boys.
