A HAT-TRICK from Tim Raby saw Sonning Common and Peppard C defeat Kingfisher G 8-2 in Division 2 of the Reading and District League.
Raby battled to hard fought wins over both Dave Duncan and Steve Woolnough as the C team recorded their first win of the season to remain mid-table.
In Division 1 Jeremy Willis managed a win over Andrew Smith as the B team lost 9-1 at high-flying Kingfisher B.
