Hackney & Leyton League Division Two leaders Athletico Angels were dumped out of the Jack Morgan Cup in comprehensive style as they suffered a 5-1 thrashing by Bristow City.
Two of Bristow’s goals came from P Wroe, with G Hodges, T Cannon and C McCracken also on the scoresheet and Chris McKillion netting a consolation for the Angels.
Second-half goals from Gavin Kealy and Sid Egan sent Division Four front-runners Maynell into the third round with a 2-0 victory over Division Three side Delta Athletic.
Charlie Barrett and Craig Chapman scored in each half to earn Angel & Crown a 2-0 win against NLMFC, while Harry Smyth grabbed all three for Azzuri 1 as they beat Boston Celtic 3-1. Aidan O’Brien hit the Celtic reply.
Forest Athletic appeared to be heading for a cup exit at half-time in their tie against Division Three side Woodford Rovers, trailing 2-0 to a Karmatt Marvin double.
But Forest fought back to force extra time with two goals from Bradley O’Donovan – and Luke Cato’s strike in the second additional period sent them through.
Top Red squeezed past fellow Division Four side Eastway Olympia 5-4 in a penalty shoot-out after extra time had left the teams locked at 3-3.
Max Levy, Henry Swales and Sam Jones were on target for Top Red, with Jason Gardner scoring two of the Eastway goals and Stefan Boyce-Hall adding the third.

n A last-minute strike from Emrah Cokungonul, his second of the game, clinched a 3-2 victory for Dynamics FC in their Division One clash with Homerton. Fehat Bilgili also scored for Dynamics, while Quincey Roberts grabbed both the Homerton goals.
n Mikey Parker snatched a late winner for second-placed City Fliers as they won 2-1 to inflict a first league defeat of the season on Division Three leaders Birkbeck Orient.
