North West Norfolk League round-up: Five teams keep their Norfolk Junior Cup dream alive
Five teams safely booked their place in the next stage of the Norfolk Junior Cup by winning second round ties on Saturday.
Great Massingham saw off Yaxham 2-1, after extra time, despite playing for more than an hour with 10 men. The visitors took the lead before home debutant Simon Clarke took the game past the 90-minute mark. Mass' sheer hard work prevailed when captain Ed Tann slotted home the winner from the penalty spot.
South Creake continued their county cup adventure by beating Rockland United 3-1. After spurning several chances, Creake took the lead through Tom Raisbury. Conor Welch and Ashley King found the net to wrap up their side's convincing home win.
Ingoldisthorpe beat Watlington 2-1 at home in an all North West Norfolk League - which is sponsored by Seddon - tie, while Lynn North End and Gayton United progressed via walk over victories (other team forfeiting the game).
Former NWNL outfit Redgate Rangers also enjoyed Junior Cup success at the weekend when they hammered Saham Toney - who play two divisions higher than them in the Anglian Combination League - 8-1.
Division Six Rangers' took the lead through Mark Sainty before Toney equalised with a long-range effort. Yet this only inspired Danny Lincoln's men to maintain their 100pc start to the campaign.
Man of the match Stevie Fisher netted a 30-minute hat-trick to make it 4-1 before a second-half brace from Lloyd Drewery and goals from Dean Twaite-Smith and captain Stuart Deadman rounded off their triumph.
