Windsor suffered their biggest defeat of the season going down 3-5 at home against Hartley Wintney.
Following the weekends FA Vase success against Camberley Town, Windsor were expected to make progress in the league.
What they didn't expect was to be behind in the opening seconds when Ryan Stephens was allowed to get through and slot past Carl Dennison.
A second came soon after when Shane Hollamby's cross found Sam Argent who finished low past Dennison.
With just 20 minutes on the clock Hartley added a third when Jack Coventry was given a free run through to finish as Windsor's continued to get worse.
An earlier clash of heads between Hollamby and Ben Harris saw both of those replaced before the visitors added a fourth.
Tom Wals sent the ball into the area where Dennson mis-judged the bounce, sending the ball over his head leaving Stepehens an easy finish for his second.
Stephens should have bagged a hat-trick just after half time when Dan Hicks pulled down Argent but for once he couldn't get the ball past Dennison.
The fifth did eventually arrive when Ashley Lloyd got his head on the end of Coventry's corner.
Despite being five goals down and having conceded a penalty Windsor were not to be silenced in the match and soon looked to stage a late comeback.
Carl Garstang curled in 2 fantastic free kicks and, under very little pressure, Mason Saunders turned Garstang's cross into his own net.
With still 10 minutes to play Windsor continued to press but it was all a little too late as Hartley managed to hold on.
