Cherry Hinton Lions 3
Ely Crusaders: 2
A DISSAPOINTED Crusaders returned from Cherry Hinton having failed to progress in the knock out cup.
Jake Butler headed home to open the scoring for Ely in the first half but Lions came back strong in the second and took the lead.
Crusaders deservedly drew level as James Barrett released Lewis Hook and his powerful run and assured finish, high into the Cherry Hinton net, brought the match to 2-2. Though Ely were now in the ascendancy it was another error which gave Lions the decisive goal as Crusaders were clinically punished.
(Witchford win 1-0 on pens)
WITCHFORD made it through to the next round of the cup with a nail-biting penalty shoot-out win.
With a goal from Spencer Saberton in the first-half and an extra-time strike from Trey Webber the game was deadlocked at 2-2 forcing the tie to be decided by means of penalty kicks. In the shoot-out only Tommy Corlito managed to net for either side as both of the goalkeepers made a strong of saves. Fortunately for Witchford though, keeper James Edwards made the crucial fifth save to hand his side victory.

After the break the visitors had chances to increase their lead, but were caught out themselves as Gamlingay scored from a free kick making it 1-2.
WITCHFORD dominated play from the first whistle with good passing from the back, right through mid field to the front, with the break through coming mid way through the first half when Georgia Day fired home.
