Maidstone United produced the shock result of the FA Trophy first round on Saturday by knocking out Blue Square Bet South leaders Salisbury City 2-0.
Against a side two divisions above them in the non-league pyramid, the Ryman League, Division 1 South leaders struck twice in seven minutes late in the first half through Nicky Humphrey and Alex Flisher in front of a gate of 1,365 at the Gallagher Stadium.
The Ryman League programme was badly hit by the weekend's heavy rain with 13 matches postponed, including Margate's home game against Wealdstone in the Premier Division.
In Division 1 North, Thamesmead moved into fifth place after a 2-1 home win over Waltham Forest thanks to two goals in the first 20 minutes from Sean Roberts and Rob Carter. Chatham's game at Ware was postponed.
Division 1 South was worst hit by the weather with five of the scheduled 10 matches postponed, including Herne Bay v Faversham, Hythe v Ramsgate and Leatherhead v Folkestone.
Sittingbourne against Merstham did go ahead, with the Brickies moving up to fifth place after drawing 2-2 at home. Both their goals came from Ryan Golding, taking his tally for the season to 12.
Whitstable's worries at the other end of the table worsened with a 3-2 defeat at Tooting & Mitcham, where they trailed 3-0 at the break before almost pulling off a second-half comeback through goals by Damian Abel and Stuart Vahid.
