CLAPTON RANGERS maintained their bid to retain the Dickie Davies Cup with a 7-1 hammering of Club 93 on Sunday.

The cup holders cruised into the third round as Ashley Taylor-Forbes netted a hat-trick and Ashley Bennett, Ben Gracey, James Smith and Johnny Offei also hit the target. Leon Dennison replied for Club 93.

AC Islington, of Division Four, overcame Division Three opponents Big Kahuna 2-1, with goals from Freddie Ezeuka and Lee Ramsey. After a goalless first half, Islington surged into a two-goal lead and held on to record an upset win after Louis Mitchell had pulled a goal back for Kahuna.

Two goals from Andy Matyo earned Wounded Knee a 2-1 win over Delta, while Black Meteors came from a goal down to win 3-1 against FC Lockers, who scored had taken the lead through Steven Fairchild. Maxwell Sarfo-adu and Mutela Mohammed's double ensured Meteors progressed.

Kadir Jama hit a hat-trick in Bancroft United's 6-1 win over FC Storm, while Real Romania scored a last-gasp equaliser to take their meeting with Mile End to extra-time before prevailing on penalties.

Real struck in stoppage time to level the match at 4-4 before sealing a 4-3 victory in the shootout. Antonio Moiroi and Grita Ofrim scored two apiece for Real, while Chris Leon's hat-trick and Aberham Mahmood's strike proved in vain for Mile End.

Army and Navy defeated Lancresse Rangers 3-0, with Yusseff Etti scoring twice and Philly Eusebe adding a third.

In Premier League action, Lapton strengthened their position at the top of the table with a 2-0 win over St George's, FC Highstone moved into second place in Division Two after a 5-1 thrashing of Hospital Tavern, while East London went second in Division Four with a 4-1 defeat of Florist Arms.
