Last week’s giant killers Woodsetts Welfare were bought down to earth with a bump, being knocked out by Inter Kilton.

Langold Lakeside and Shireoaks Sports both progressed with big wins, while Yates United and Breakers Wasps also made the quarter-finals.

Manton Club JFC needed extra-time but got the job done in their battle with Stanley Street Galacticos, triumphing 4-3.

Following a scrappy opening it was the visitors who took the lead through Tom Mullen’s unstoppable free-kick.

The hosts soon drew level when a wind assisted corned was headed home by Phil Slowey, but last week’s hat trick hero Mullen was at it again, firing into the top corner to restore the JFC lead.

The JFC back four were all over the shop and had keeper Danny McCusker to thank, pulling off three fantastic saves, when left one on one with Josh Sweetnam on three different occasions.

But he couldn’t keep out Nathan Sherwood’s fierce effort which bought the sides level at the break.

It was Stanley Street who struck first in the second half when Slowey added his second of the game, before Mathew Button scrambled in a JFC equaliser to take the game to extra time.

With a shootout looming, former Galactico Steven Wankiewicz finished from close range with just four minutes left on the clock to book his sides place in the quarter-finals.

Meanwhile Shireoaks Sports made amends for the previous week’s defeat to St Josephs by progressing to the quarter-final with a comfortable 8-2 victory over Manton Inn.

A threadbare Sports 11, lead by captain Nathan Clayton, were always in charge of the game despite losing full-back Lester Moloney to a cracked finger nail after just five minutes, which led to veteran manager Andrew Redfern making a sensational comeback despite retiring five years ago.

The game was over at the break as goals from Clayton, Luke Allison, Ben Taylor, Romanian Alin Ciuciu and a brace from Steve Roberts gave the visitors a 6-1 half-time lead. Second half goals from Allison and Thomas Johnson completed the rout and sent Sports into January’s quarter final draw.
