Stretham Sporting B 1 Witchford B 2
SOLOMON Grover's late goal sealed the points for Witchford against a spirited Stretham side.
Man-of-the-match Aaron Lord saw his opener cancelled out by the hosts, but Grover's late show secured victory.
Under 12 B
Linton Aztecs 1 Ely Crusaders 3
CRUSADERS got back to winning ways with an impressive display at Linton, taking the lead after just eight minutes.
Charlie Hurst delivered a great pass after collecting a long clearance from goalkeeper Charlie Root, and Dominic Hunt beat a defender before rifling home an angled drive.
A spectacular diving header put Aztecs back on level terms shortly afterwards, but with man-of-the-match Root bossing the midfield and Alec Hewitt causing problems up front, Crusaders continued to dominate proceedings.
Hewitt hit the post after 15 minutes, but nine minutes later he restored Ely's lead.
Hewitt then made the points safe when Mitchell Morse and Hurst combined well with a quickly-taken free-kick, Root's effort being parried by the goalkeeper into the path of his team-mate.
Inter '08 3 Isleham United 3
ISLEHAM travelled to Cambourne for their fourth game of the season, and took an early lead through Liam Markwell after a good combination between James Sykes and Thomas Wade.
Markwell and Aidan O'Brien then opened the way for James Van der Peer to add a cracking second goal.
Inter got back on terms before half-time and then swept into the lead, but with three minutes remaining Kieran Fitchett's superb shot earned Isleham a draw.
Under 13 B
Haddenham 3 Milton 4
HADDENHAM suffered their first defeat of the season after making a dramatic comeback which looked to have earned them a point.
An own goal gave Milton the lead after 17 minutes against the run of play, and Haddenham were then twice caught on the break to trail 3-0 in the second half.
Alex Lowe's speculative cross eluded the goalkeeper to reduce the arrears with 20 minutes remaining however, and Kieran Drummond's inswinging corner flew in off a defender to reduce the deficit to a single goal.
Lowe's brilliant free-kick then levelled the scores with four minutes remaining, and Tyrell Barrett came close to making it 4-3 before the visitors snatched a winner themselves with virtually the last kick of the game.
Outwell 5 Littleport Town 2
A very entertaining game saw 'Port bow out of the cup against much higher-ranked opposition.
Ryan Bamber cancelled out the opening goal, but Outwell led 2-1 at the break and pulled clear in the second half before Ethan Povey grabbed a late consolation.
'Port made mistakes at both ends, but showed a level of commitment that should stand them in good stead for the remainder of the campaign.
Under 15 KO Cup
Fulbourn Falcons 1 Ely City 10
MAN-of-the-match Martyn Lindsay grabbed four goals as Ely recorded an impressive win at Fulbourn.
Frazer Jennings and Tom Stead struck after Lindsay had opened the scoring, and Jake Nicholls headed home a Jamie Smith corner to make it 4-0.
Lindsay completed his hat-trick with goals either side of the break, and Craig Emson subsequently made it 7-1 before Lindsay notched his fourth of the game.
Matthew McInaly - replaced in goal at half-time by Alex Snookes - then scored twice more to take Ely into double-figures.
Jack Young, Samuel Butcher, Finn Morrell, Ryan Ellwood and Nicholls all played well in defence for City, and Finlay Thorburn battled well in midfield.
Under 16 League Cup
Alconbury 2 Soham Town 3
SOHAM are through to the second round after narrowly defeating Alconbury.
Dan Driver set up Elliott Drewery to slot home the opening goal, and man-of-the-match Ryan Collins smashed the second into the roof of the net following a goalmouth scramble.
Drewery lobbed the 'keeper to make it 3-0 at the start of the second half, but Alconbury hit back with two well-taken goals to make it close at the finish.
