THERE’S STILL ALL TO PLAY FOR
JUST 40 match points separated winners Herne Hill Harriers and seventh-placed Bournemouth as the division continues to be well-contested.
Second-placed Kingston & Polytechnic remain ahead in the league table, two points clear of match winners Herne Hill as Kent slipped to fourth on the day but remain in with a chance of promotion. They had Chukwudi Onyia post a good 15.23m triple jump, his third league win of the year.
Winners Herne Hill had just three A-string victories – 20-year-old Lascelles Hussey edged a close 800m in 1:55.69 and Marvin Popoola added the 200m in 21.54.
Enfield & Haringey continued their slide and who will join them in the drop is now between Bournemouth, Crawley and Newquay & Par.
With possibly the smallest squad in all five divisions, N&P performed well after a long trip.
Enfield did, however, have winners and their best was in the 100m where Ade Adewale posted 10.50 after paddling through the puddles. They also had George Vaughan take advantage of an illegal wind to win the 110m hurdles in 14.94 as well as taking the relay but the former Premiership side had too many gaps in their team to make an impression.
