The men hosted Tulse Hill & Dulwich and fell behind against the run of play.

But they hit back with a low flicked finish from Harry Finster and took the lead when John Lyness stole the ball and fired home.

Adam Willoughby deflected the third goal in at the far post, with Jonathan Ogle’s penalty flick sealing a 4-1 win.

The women jetted off to Guernsey, meanwhile, and took the lead from the spot.

The hosts levelled from a short corner, but Ailish Hendry fired home on the reverse to restore East’s lead.

And they netted twice more in the second half, with Claire Bergin, Lucy Dempsey and Amy Turle joining Hendry on the scoresheet, to earn a 4-1 win and a spot in the third round for the first time.

The men’s fifths bowed out of their competition, though, after an 8-0 loss to K-Sports (Cobdown).

Saturday’s league matches brought plenty of success, as the men beat Havering 7-2 in East Premier B.

They fell behind, but Mark Prince and Willoughby replied before half time, only for the hosts to square it up in the second half.

East then took charge as Finster and Simon Jackson netted from open play, before Ogle scored with corner drag flicks either side of an Andy Cumine deflection.

Michael Crossley, Sam Gregory, Guy Paul and Matthew Kriek netted as the seconds beat Hertford 4-1 and Hiren Amin, David O’Reilly, Tharun Puvaneswaran and Ian Allgood led the sixths to a 4-0 win over Wapping ninths, while the eighths edged out Romford seconds 3-2.

Two well-drilled goals from Anastasia Nicholl saw the women to a 2-1 win over Ashford, as Lucy Dempsey took the player of the match award.

The thirds beat the fourths 1-0 in a club derby, while the sevenths saw off Southend thirds 4-0, as Emilie O’Brien (2), Catherine Senior and Chloe Russell all struck.

James Lowson and Guy Perkins netted as the men’s thirds drew 2-2 with Wapping fifths, while Danny and Joel Williams were on target as the fourths came from behind in the last 10 minutes to draw 2-2 with Wapping sevenths.

The fifths drew 0-0 with Wapping eighths, while the women’s fifths beat their Wapping rivals 2-0 with goals from Katrina Wylie and Stephanie Poon.

The sixth team lost 1-0 to Wapping sevenths, while East London eighths and ninths battled to a 0-0 derby draw.
