WILL Naylor struck twice in the opening 20 minutes as Hampstead & Westminster dominated the early stages to beat Beeston 3-0 at Paddington Rec.
Having lost 5-2 in their previous encounter with Beeston, H&W hit the ground running with three early goals to record their third consecutive league victory.
The home side burst out of the blocks and took the lead in the sixth minute courtesy of a fine strike from Andy Cornick, who fired his shot in the bottom corner from the top of the circle.
Naylor then rounded off a strong counter-attack to make it 2-0 and found himself as the focus of a breakaway which he converted from two yards for his second goal.
Todd Williams' side did not let their intensity level drop in the second half and, despite failing to extend their lead, managed to keep a clean sheet.
H&W, who remain seventh in the league - but just three points off fourth place - travel to Loughborough Students for their next match on Saturday before welcoming Old Loughtonians in the quarter-finals of the EHL Cup the following day.
WEST Hampstead bounced back from three consecutive defeats to record a thumping 6-0 victory over promotion-chasing Gore Court on Saturday in South League Division Two.
Rob Frampton converted two short corners within three minutes to put WH in control and Jason Brooks extended the lead following good build-up in midfield.
Brooks struck again four minutes before half-time to make it 4-0 and, after a fine save from Alan Williamson on the line had denied Gore Court, Tom Kimberley hit number five.
Mark Little rounded off the scoring with West Hampstead's sixth goal just after the hour mark.
