Kershaw Premier Division
Eaton Socon 3 Histon A 2
EATON stretched their winning run to two matches, but once again they were forced to do it without 11 players on the pitch.
Playing some of their best football of the season, Eaton roared into a three-goal lead.
They opened the scoring when Adam Boothby, who worked tirelessly up front on his own, crossed for Johnny Haynes to head home.
Richard Kays fired home the second after a fine ball from Glenn Westbury, before manager Neville Cooper was forced to substitute Kays to prevent the youngster getting himself sent off having already been booked.

Despite saving one of his players from an early shower, Cooper could not stop another from crossing the line, as Haynes was booked for a second time and subsequently sent off.
After the break Tom Hall made it 3-0 when he coolly chipped the goalkeeper, giving the home side a seemingly unassailable lead.
However, the visitors came back strongly and reduced the arrears. Eaton started to wobble, then disaster struck when substitute Adam Podgorski, who had been on the pitch for just five minutes was sent off for the third time this season after a bad tackle, leaving his side with just nine men.
Histon added a second, but the nine men of Eaton held on to claim the three points. Match sponsor Oliver Dalrymple awarded the whole team the man of the match award.
Meanwhile, Socon reserves picked up an impressive 4-3 win at rivals Buckden in the BIS league.
James Fuller opened the scoring for Eaton from the penalty spot before a tap in from Matt Millard, an own goal and another from Archer completed the scoring in only Eaton's second win of the season.
