Ben Fuller smashed a seven-minute hat-trick to help unbeaten Fenstanton retain second place in Division 2B of the Cambs League.
Ben Hall also struck as all their goals in a 4-1 success over Soham United Reserves arrived in the opening 10 minutes of the second half.
But the victory came at a cost as Fenstanton lost defender Darren Bryant to a fractured shoulder while the game was still goalless in the opening period.
Fenstanton face a second-versus-third derby trip to another unbeaten side, Houghton & Wyton this Saturday. Houghton & Wyton won 7-3 at Bluntisham Rangers Reserves last weekend with Lloyd Howard hitting a hat-trick.
Offord extended their unbeaten start in Division 3A to stay in pole position.
