Knockout specialists Eureka have reached the semi-finals of the Dickie Davies Cup following a dramatic penalty shootout win over Old King John's Head

Knockout specialists Eureka have reached the semi-finals of the Dickie Davies Cup following a dramatic penalty shootout victory over Premier Division rivals Old King John's Head.

The Hackney club, who won last year's London FA Sunday Intermediate Cup, were unable to overcome Old King John's in normal time as goals from Eureka's Justin Cummins and Gary Williams were answered by Paul Doyle and David Laird.

But Eureka survived a rollercoaster shootout - in which both goalkeepers made saves - to triumph 4-3 and reach the semi-finals.

League leaders Lapton also advanced to the last four of the competition following a 1-0 win over plucky Division Four outfit AC Islington, while Black Meteors overcame St George's 2-0 in their quarter-final meeting.

Division One promotion hopefuls Real Romania are the only side from outside the top flight to reach the last four following a 5-1 rout of Wounded Knee. Ionut Coropceanu and Florin Virlan both netted twice for Real, with Antonio Mieroi also on target.

FC Highstone edged a high-scoring quarter-final clash to reach the last four of the Jack Morgan Cup following a 5-3 win over old rivals Homerton Rangers.

In the Premier Division, Albion Manor moved into third place after a 3-1 win over struggling Red Devils as Raymond Gibson, Allan Mullen and Darren Whelan hit the target.

Army and Navy moved into top spot in Division One courtesy of a 3-1 win over London Aprilia, while improving Midfield recorded a shock 2-1 win over in-form Club'93.

FC Metwin continue to climb away from the division's lower reaches after a 3-1 victory over Gascoyne.

Stephen Sango netted a double to secure a share of the points for Lancresse in a 2-2 draw with Mile End, who hit back through Abraham Mahood and Jack Higgs.

Delta hit double figures to regain leadership Division Two following a 10-0 demolition of Walthamstow Village, while Lammas (pictured) cemented their lead at the top of Division Three with a tight 2-1 win over Tottenham Phoenix.
