Saleem Jabbar kept up his good form with another two goals while Tom Bundy notched the third.
Getafe had a much tougher than anticipated match against Chris Houghton’s FC Big Fan.
Big Fan established a two-goal lead thanks to strikes from Christian Iszchak and Ollie Jamieson.
Alfie Spalding pulled a goal back with an audacious lob but Houghton’s men had a chance to regain their two-goal cushion when a penalty was awarded for a foul on Dan Allison.
However, the forward missed the target with the spot-kick.
That was the turning point for Getafe as Jordan Gutt’s double and another from Jordan Kimsey secured the victory.
Mark Beard FC raced into a 3-0 half-time lead against Neverbee Athletic through goals from Niall Quinn, Jerome Dixon and Sam Reyner.
Beard continued to have the lion’s share of possession after the restart although Athletic’s Michael Beales and Dominic Gillick both had shots on target that were denied by Josh Houghton.
Andy Spencer added to the scoreline shortly after before three goals from Quinn earned him the man of the match accolade.

A hat-trick from man of the match Michal Gawron and a super strike from Slawomir Bukala were the pick of the Smakosze goals, Mark Chappell scoring a consolation effort for Rowan’s men.
