Mick Woodham's Windsor FC made sure they held onto top spot and maintained their 100% start to the season with a 3-1 win at home to South Park.
Going into the game both teams had won their opening two matches setting up and early season top of the table clash.
It was Windsor, however, who had the early chances with Chris Deane heading just wide from Robert Lazarczuk's long throw.
Windsor made sure that the long throw was more effective moments later when Lazarczuk managed to pick out Adam Kirby who headed in his first club goal.
The lead was soon doubled when a quick free kick allowed Carl Garstang to swing the ball in allowing Jason Sheehan to set up Dan Hicks to fire past James Wastell.
The start of the second half saw the first of two incidents that could have seen the visitors reduced to ten men.
What seemed to be a simple defender versus attacker aerial battle resulted in Michael Smith stamping on Dan Hicks. Fortunately for Smith, the assistant referee only saw the aftermath and not the incident.
South Park then managed to pull a goal back when David Smith managed to get into the box and looped an effort that Carl Dennison could only palm into the net.
Minutes later and the hard work to get back into the match was almost undone when an off the ground two footed challenge by Jack Higgins on Dan Hicks was only punished by a caution rather than the deserved dismissal.
The two goal cushion was restored with just under 20 minutes remaining when James Wastell tried to beat George Gould to the ball allowing Jason Sheehan to pick out Lazarczuk who took his time before rolling the ball in.
