Fareham scored three times in the opening 16 minutes of their England Hockey Western Conference match at Chelenham before cruising to a 4-1 win over their Gloucestershire hosts.
Chris Davey, Jamie Rawlings, with a penalty stroke, and Nial Stott put Fareham firmly in the driving seat before Luke Cornish added a fourth in the second half.
Chichester, in contrast, pulled off a remarkable comeback to draw 4-4 at Eastern Conference rivals Southgate, where they were 4-0 down going into the last ten minutes.
But the Sussex side hit back with goals by Luke Emmett and Alex Baxter before teenager Alex Pendle scored twice in the last five minutes to earn his side a point.
A late goal by Lizzie Gittens gave Western Women’s Conference leaders Trojans a 1-0 win over Gloucester City at Stoneham Lane.
