Alban Dynamo produced a major surprise in the Herts Ad Sunday League Charity Cup by dumping out Division One Blackberry Jacks.
The Division Three side have struggled so far this season with seven defeats from their nine league games but they were on top of their game as they pushed Jacks all the way.
Three stunning goals from Louis Batstone, Harry Peter and Kieran Wall always had them in front although a hat-trick from Matthew Taiwo sent the game into penalties with a 3-3 draw.
However, Michael Perry was the Dynamo hero, saving three of the Jacks spot-kicks meaning successful conversions from Brodie Carrington, Peter and Batstone sent them through.
Beehive progressed in the Herts Ad Intermediate Cup, beating Hatfield Comets 4-1. Craig Clark and Ashley Defries shared the four goals between them with Jacob Woolmington replying for the Comets.
Two Willows good cup form continued with a 4-2 success over Hitchin Sunday League side Saint Evenage in the Herts Sunday Junior Cup. Craig Arnott, Kam Beez, Rayvan Bridgett and Michael Miller got the goals.
In the Premier Division Plough & Harrow completed the double over bottom team Brookmans Park with Tommy Biswell, George Elledge, Bill Small and Josh Small helping them to a 6-0 win.
