EASTROP Eagles came from behind to secure their place in the next round of the Hampshire Sunday Junior A Cup with a 4-2 win over Down End.

The Basingstoke side went a goal down from a set-piece but Jamie O'Grady levelled before setting up Jimmy Buckland with a fine through-ball, the striker beating the Down End goalkeeper one-on-one to give Eastrop the lead.

James Kelly extended the lead but Down End pulled on back and threatened to level before O'Grady's second of the match wrapped up victory for the Eagles.

RAF Odiham Blades were knocked out, losing 5-2 to a strong AFC Gosport side.

North Warnborough showed no mercy to injury-hit AFC Hook on Sunday, thrashing their hosts 9-0 to reach the third round of the Bernard Cornish Cup.

Trevor Rogers and Ryan Thorpe both hit hat-tricks for Warnborough, while Dan Mellor bagged a brace and Joe Reynolds also found the net.

Basingstoke and District Sunday League Division Three outfit FC Everest sprung a surprise by beating Division Two side Hampshire Irons after extra-time.

Visiting Everest went ahead but James Arnold levelled the scores to send the game to extra-time. Everest regained the lead three times more in the extra period and while Arnold twice pegged them back to complete his hat-trick, the lower league side held on to win 4-3.

Division Two Skewers beat Division Three side UWS 3-0, Stephen Bean, Matt Ennison and Karl Hanks getting the goals.

South View won a close Basingstoke and District Sunday League Division Two game against Chineham by the odd goal in five.

Chris Smith put Chineham ahead, but goals from Jake Best and Matt Morris had South View ahead. Jake Burrows levelled for the hosts shortly after the break but Paul Garton netted the winner for South View with 20 minutes left.

Two games took place in Division Three, with Chineham Athletic beating Railway Club 4-1 and Team emerging 3-0 winners over Sambuca.

Anton Medford capped a good team move to put Chineham ahead, with Dale Hooper later hitting a hat-trick as they ran out comfortable winners over Railway Club.

Sambuca were made to pay for failing to take their chances by a clinical Team side.
