Joe Townsend scored twice for Moulton Harrox at Peterborough Sports Reserves.

Leaders Netherton United were surprisingly beaten 2-1 at home by city rivals ICA Sports after missing a hatful of scoring chances.

Netherton did lead, but ICA hit back to inflict just a second defeat of the season on the table-toppers.

Netherton still have a four-point advantage at the top over Moulton Harrox, but the South Lincs side have two matches in hand. The top two clash at the Grange next Wednesday (April 18) and again in Moulton Harrox on a date yet to be arranged.
