Henley Athletic moved past Achilles into second spot with a 3-1 win at Bramford United, Byron Tejano firing them into the lead ten minutes into the second half.
Bramford levelled straight away, Shaneil Clarke turning and netting well.
But Athletic would not be denied, and sealed the points through Clark Bruce and Jamie Cowan.
Elsewhere, Bourne Vale were undone 2-1 at home by Westerfield United.
