POTTERS Bar seconds stayed on top of the East Hockey League Division Nine South West table with a 4-1 victory over Cheshunt.
Goals from Liam Frame, Andy Bye, Dave Fennel and Alan Holford guided the league high-fliers to their 10th win of the season.
A professional performance from the hosts saw them through another tough game against a fit and youthful Cheshunt outfit.
Bar opened the scoring with Liam Frame, followed by Andy Bye from the top to the D to make it 2-0.
The East Herts side broke confidently with good pace.
But they lacked a cutting edge to punish Bar.
Johnny Weller did, however, make a high-class save before half-time when he dived low to his right to deny a way back into the game for the opponents.
The second half produced some early scares for Bar.
Cheshunt scored a soft goal early on and looked like they might come back into the match.
This was unusual as Bar's defensive three had started to settle down and play well together.
Bar regained their two-goal cushion through Fennel.
He had made a number of telling runs down the right flank, using one or two tricks and his ample pace.
On this occasion a solo run into the D was finished by slotting the ball past the keeper and inside the post.
A scrappy portion of the game ensued with Bar over-reacting to petty fouls.
The final goal was scored by Alan Holford, following up to Adam Pigden's earlier strike and being in the right place at the right time.
It was a good win as Cheshunt are a quality side and fast, but Bar were more than their match.
This coming Saturday Potters Bar are again in league action when they travel to Bishop's Stortford to play the town's seventh team.
