Alex Smith netted the fourth goal for Unity, while Emmanuel Mayaka put in an outstanding performance in midfield. Cameron Saunders produced two fine saves to ensure a clean sheet.
Corry Bailey’s double helped Unity Under-15s to edge out St John’s United 3-2 and keep themselves in touch with the front-runners.
Sadek Rahmen was also on target for Unity, while goalkeeper Alex Webb was in excellent form at the other end.
Man of the match James Dill got his name on the scoresheet as Unity Under-17s produced a convincing team display to overcome Cricklewood Wanderers 5-1.

Nicky Marshall maintained his purple patch in front of goal with a hat-trick as Isledon Wolves Under-14s hammered Crown & Manor 6-2.
Wolves, who remain top of the league, produced some quick, passing football and were always in control. Skipper Deon Marshall scored a brace, while the consistent Alfie Lusardi was also on target.
Isledon Wolves Channons Under-10s were denied victory by a late own goal as they drew 2-2 with CM Futsal despite dominating the game.
Man of the match JJ O’Connor opened the scoring in the sixth minute and, although Futsal quickly levelled, O’Connor smashed in a penalty to make it 2-1 before Channons conceded late on. Nabel Ahmed and Lenyn Patino also performed well.
