HOLDERS Rolls Park were eliminated from the East London Sunday League's Senior Cup in the first round as they crashed out of the competition in a thrilling encounter against Inter Lucia.

Rolls Park, who had won the cup for the past two seasons, appeared poised for victory when they led 4-3 in normal time and again went in front 5-4 in extra-time.

But Inter hit back with three late goals to win a dramatic contest 7-5.

SK Veleciku also advanced to the second round after a 2-1 win over Crownfield, while White Swan and Cuckoo recorded a third straight win over Hackney Downs B with a 1-0 victory and Arbour Athletic sailed through against luckless Young Prince 5-1.

In the Dick Coppock Cup, Concordia sneaked through against Arbour B with a 3-1 penalty-shootout triumph, while Millwall Albion fought back from an early deficit to record a 7-1 rout of East End United.

New North Rangers maintained their 100 per cent record with a 2-1 win over Besiktas in the Division Three Cup, while Acorn beat Concordia's Under-18s 5-1 and Stratford made short work of William Fitt Lions in a 5-0 victory.

Queensbridge Rangers, playing in their first league game in Division One, were given a baptism of fire by Reama, who underlined their promotion credentials with a stunning 17-2 win.

Springfield scored a narrow 1-0 victory over nine-man Adriatiku in Division Two, while Division Three newcomers Jubba FC prevailed 8-3 against Shoreditch Youth.

East London League outfits East Moore B and EFY both progressed in the London Sunday Junior Cup.

East Moore were handed a walkover victory while Division Two side EFY defeated Premier Division opponents Beaumont International 6-1 in a stunning upset win.
