VB TROPHIES LEAGUE CUP SEMI-FINAL
TRIPLE-S lost a penalty shoot-out against Senior Division rivals Sawston Keys.
Ben Howe's equalising goal took the tie into extra-time, and Scott Fretwell then put the visitors ahead for the first time.
Andy Short looked to have clinched the tie when he made it 3-2 with a long-range effort in the 115th minute, but it was all downhill for Triple-S from there.
Howe was the victim of a bad challenge, and although Sawston were reduced to 10 men by the subsequent dismissal, they managed to bring it to 3-3.
Keys were the first team to crack in the penalty shoot-out, but managed to convert the rest of their spot-kicks as the visitors squandered two to lose 4-2.
VILLAGE Inn need only one more win from their remaining four matches to secure the 3A title after clinching a 3-2 victory at Chippenham.
Aaron Spencer netted his first goal for the club after getting on the end of a Mark Heading cross, and he then returned the compliment for Heading to make it 2-0.
Village Inn went further in front, but the hosts pulled one back before the break and a second-half penalty left the visitors hanging on.
Little Downham United lost 10-0 in the same section, but Wilburton Albion scored 10 as they won at Alma FC Reserves in Division 4A.
Will Ludbrooke scored a hat-trick in each half, and he was joined on the scoresheet by Mel Pryer (2), Shane Freeland and an own goal.
Jamie Beeton and Sam Richardson were on target as Wicken Maids Head secured a 2-2 draw at home to Fox Burwell, and goals from James Kent and Gary Murfitt - with a long-range effort - helped LTFC 1906 to a 3-0 win over Cambridge Cosmos Reserves.
Another team to score 10 were Division 1A leaders Ely Park Rangers, with man-of-the-match Brady Stone hitting a hat-trick against Bar Hill Reserves.
David Cornwell matched Stone's effort with the final three goals, and there was a brace apiece for Chris Lupson and Jamie Gayfer prior to that.
Ely Park Rangers Reserves also had two hat-trick heroes as they hit double figures in their 2A match at Over Crusaders.
Gary Dewsbury and Richie Murfitt were the leading marksmen in Ely's 13-1 win, and they were joined by Darren Brodie (2), Luke Fretwell, Danny Mitchell, Gareth Arter, Simon Farrow and Lee Follen.
In the same section, QPR Ely were thumped 6-2 by Magpies 2001.
