Football: Woodlands dial up surprise Cup win; Spotlight on the Sunday league scene RUGBY & DAVENTRY.
Andrey Arnaudov fired Woodlands ahead midway through the first half and James Burke gave them a 2-0 cushion at the interval. Fone-A-Car mounted a desperate fightback but Burke exploited gaps in their defence to snap up his second and Luke Lovell rubbed salt into the wounds with the fourth goal.
Newbold also flew the Division Three flag, crushing Yelvertoft 5-1 thanks to Junior Beckford (2) Curtis Dickens, Chris Wilkinson and Tarriff Bryant while Converteam crushed Hillmorton Ex- Sevicemen 5-1.
David Orbinson and Ryan Heads secured a 2-0 interval lead and after Hillmorton had twice rattled the bar, Callum Kerr killed off any prospects of a recovery.
Centre-half Allan Meahan then took centre-stage with two goals, the first a stunning volley, while Servicemen had to settle for a last-kick consolation.
Prince of Wales demolished Bull 9-1, Yousef Damesh, Gareth Llewellyn and Dan Flanagan reeling off hat-tricks, which means that the semi-finals will, for the first time, feature three Division Three sides and one from Division Two.
Barley Mow overwhelmed Division Three Lawford 10-1 in the quarter-finals of the Hospital Cup, Darren Woods (4) and Bradley Harris (3) spearheading the rout while Neil Clarke, David Clarke and Andrew Higgs picked up the pieces.
Paddox maintained their unbeaten record with a 5-2 win over CRC but Rugby Workers had to sweat before taming The Bell 6-4. Ali Colcomb, Wes Klopper and Ged Gillooly netted for the Division Three side to make it 3-3 at the 90-minute mark and Colcomb nudged Bell ahead in extra-time. Workers hauled themselves level and two goals in the final eight minutes eased them into the semi-finals.
DAVENTRY UNITED tamed AFC Caseys 3-0 to leapfrog into second spot, Tom Waldock (2) and John Crockett supplying the goals. They are now three points off the pace with a game in hand on Onley United, 4-1 winners at Abercorn B.
Pomfret Celtic suffered their first defeat of the season when Joe Manning's opener was overhauled by AFC Jesson's Nick Maund and Johnathan Murray.
