Barkingside had their three game unbeaten run brought to a halt with a 3-1 defeat to title challengers Hullbridge Sports at Cricklefield Stadium.
Goals from Ollie Sotoyinbo, James Cox and Nathan Scarborough sealed the three points for the Sports – despite a late consolation goal as substitute Shaiquan Maisara found the back of the net in the 84th minute.
Sotoyinbo slotted home a penalty in the 40th minute to open the scoring and take a 1-0 lead into the half-time break.
Ten minutes into the second-half James Cox headed home at the far post to double the Hullbridge lead.
In the 80th minute Scarborough stretched the lead to a 3-0 as he dribbled the ball in before firing into the net.
Four minutes later Side clawed one back thanks to Maisara but it would only count as a consolation.
Barkingside will host Sawbridgeworth Town this weekend as they look to get back to winning ways.
