CADBURY Heath are just one point behind leaders Brislington with two games in hand following the latest round of Premier Division fixtures.
Heath came from behind to win 3-1 at Bristol Manor Farm – Matt Huxley, Mark Reynolds and Nick Dyer on target after Ashley Knight's early opener for the hosts.
Brislington were held to a 1-1 draw at Melksham, while Bishop Sutton consolidated their third place with a 3-1 home victory over Wells.
Hallen, in fourth, had a rude awakening at Buckland, who ran out 5-0 winners with goals from Dean Stevens, Jamie Mudge, Simon Revell, Lucas Burgess and Gavin Hammon.
Hengrove's lead in the First Division was cut to five points after they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Oldland Abbotonians.
Craig Wilson gave the visitors a first-half lead, but Ben Bament equalised after an hour.
Second-placed Chard closed the gap with a 2-1 home win over fellow high-flyers Shepton Mallet, while Cribbs Friends Life moved third with a 4-1 victory at Elmore.
Danny Tapp's own goal gave Cribbs a half-time lead, but Matt Harvey levelled for the Devon side early in the second half. However, Andy Forward struck twice in ten minutes for the visitors before Jordan Yeo rounded-off the scoring.
Cribbs move above Calne on goal difference after the latter were held to a 2-2 draw by visiting Warminster, while Corsham also have 34 points courtesy of their 2-1 win at Almondsbury UWE.
Dan King put Corsham ahead and Ross Lye hit a second from the spot, despite team-mate Nick Holton being sent off. Simon McIlroy replied late on for Almondsbury.
Roman Glass St George enjoyed a 2-0 victory over Westbury with goals from Nathan Bell and Drew Hamilton-Dunn.
All four goals came in the final 15 minutes at Keynsham, where the hosts ran out 3-1 winners over visiting Portishead.
Wayne Pearce and Rich Healey put the home side two goals up, James Clarke replied from the penalty spot on 90 minutes, but Pearce promptly grabbed his second for Keynsham.
Welton, meanwhile, saw off Devizes 3-0 with Steve Bush compounding his own goal opener by getting sent off following the award of a penalty. Jack Melcalf converted the spot-kick for a two-goal half-time lead and Byron Lismore added the third goal after the break.
