Goals from Saul Conway and Mike Pearson and Ari Last helped Hendon leap Bafana into second place.
Johnny Kaye pulled one back for Bafana.
Hendon assistant manager Benjy Wreschner said: "Bafana will be a threat to every team they play. They are quick, well organised and dangerous going forward. We admire them greatly after what was a very tough encounter. But we leave today with a number of injuries and Josh Lipman looks very doubtful."

WALKER EARNS THORNES A POINT
GLENTHORNE UNITED 2 REDBRIDGE JEWISH CARE 2
A Lewis Walker double was not enough to earn the Thornes maximum points as they drew their second consecutive Essex derby 2-2, this time against Redbridge.
Redbridge’s goals came from Anthony Mendel with a stunning 30-yard chip into the top corner, and Daniel Howard who finished off a good one-touch move before Howard slotted into the bottom corner.
Glenthorne manager Ian Cohen said: "After four games back in the Premier League, I feel we have performed reasonably well and I would like to think that there is room for improvement in my team. We need to be more ruthless when in control of games although I felt Redbridge certainly gave us a tough match and a draw was probably about fair at the end although we had enough chances in the last 20 minutes to have won the game."

ZIONISTS LATE SHOW FRUSTRATES FORTUNE
TEMPLE FORTUNE 3 HOLY MOUNT ZION 3
A last-minute strike from Yves Florentin-Lee earned the Zionists a share of the spoils in a six-goal thriller against Fortune in Hatch End.
Florentin-Lee followed up after Adrian Satmarel had his penalty saved by the in-form Adam Glekin in a game where HMZ came back from the dead with two goals in the last three minutes. Andy Mace was also among the HMZ scorers.
Fortune drew their fourth league match in succession, extending an unbeaten run to eight matches.
But the 3-3 draw was tinged with disappointment since a 3-1 lead was squandered in the last few minutes. Fortune started well, pulling a 0-1 deficit level by the interval, but dipped and struggled to find any fluency thereafter.
However, the Fortune found themselves leading by a margin of two goals but allowed HMZ to hit back.
Daniel Woolfe (2) and John Fisher scored Fortune's goals.
Fortune admin secretary Mike Shorvon said: “We didn't play well enough and didn't deserve to win. The only positive from the game was that we didn't lose. I didn't recognise the team which fought brilliantly last week against Southgate."
Feeling like the team had lost, Mike added: "I cannot understand why we seem to switch off. But full credit to HMZ who didn't give up and deserved their point which was the very least they deserved."

CATS GET THE CREAM
CATFORD & BROMLEY MACCABI 3 ZIG ZAG 0

Cats boss Lester Jacobs said: "It was a well-fought contest between two sides both of whom had to combat a strong wind with driving rain. However, a pleasing result as the Cats squad are gradually getting back to full strength regaining some players who've missed early season due to injury and journeys overseas."
Zig Zag boss Neal Cohen declined to comment.
DC Prediction: CATFORD & BROMLEY 0 MACCABI ZIG ZAG 2

L'QUIPE HIT BY YOUNG
FC TEAM B 2 L’EQUIPE 2
L'Equipe dropped their first points of the season after being held by FC Team B.
Jason Miller and David Prager
were on target for the visitors.
Mitch Young hit two to deny L'Equipe a fourth win.
L'Equipe boss Oliver Manson said: "Although the boys are a bit gutted, I'm not. I feel a little hard-done-by with the penalty decision, but these things happen and even themselves out over a season. They had a fair few of their 'better' players playing today and we dealt with them generally very well. Although we didn't win, I think this performance more than any shows how far we've come since last season. You can't win em all."
DC Prediction: FC TEAM B 1 L’EQUIPE 3
4 IN 4 for 100% TEAM

BIRTHDAY BOY LEVY LAUDS IT IN ESSEX DERBY
EAST LONDON KNIGHTS 1 WOODFORD WANDERERS 3
A brace from birthday boy Andy Levy, plus one from Mitch Hahn helped Alex Aviram's 10-man Woodford Wanderers maintain their 100 per cent start to the season after they outclassed their Essex rivals East London Knights at Wanstead Flats.
The game had everything, including six bookings and a sending off in the first 40 minutes.
Woodford played the whole of the second half with 10 men after Harrison Midda was given two yellow cards, but referee Michael Cohen.
Grant Stone pulled one back for the Knights with 12 minutes left, but James Ryan men showed little fight to force an equaliser.

PINNER JFC 2 FC MARYLEBONE 3
Strikes from Alex Gold, Mikael Benguigui and an own goal helped FC Marylebone claim their first win of the season in a five-goal thriller against Pinner.
The teams were locked 2-2 at the break. Gold’s strike was a superb volley from the edge of the box. Benguigui showed killer instinct to restore Marylebone’s advantage 10 minutes into the second half and from that point, the visitors did not look back.
Marylebone player manager Jonathan Davody said: “We didn't play well and made it hard for ourselves but we are now much stronger mentally and physically. I expect to see better football from my players next Sunday so we can build some momentum. Pinner will feel disappointed because they created a lot of chances.”
