Havant & Waterlooville 5-2 Maidstone United

Alfie Rutherford hit a hat-trick as Havant and Waterlooville leapfrogged 10-man Maidstone with a five-goal display at West Leigh Park.

Havant went ahead through Rutherford before Elliott Romain was sent off following a set-to in front of the home dugout, leaving Maidstone at a further disadvantage.

Havant exploited that when Jonah Ayunga fired in a debut goal, and it became 3-0 when Alex Bradley scored from distance.

Rutherford grabbed his second to confirm the outcome before Jack Paxman pulled one back for the improving Stones.

It was soon followed up by a goal from Blair Turgott to increase the hosts' nerves, but Rutherford settled them with his third.
