Sutton Athletic staged a remarkable recovery to beat Hollands & Blair
6-4 on aggregate. Blair, who were one up from the first-leg, moved
3-0 ahead overall at the interval at Star Meadow after Sam Prescott scored two headers.
But this Pain & Glory Sports Kent Invicta League Challenge Trophy Quarter-Final Second Leg was turned on its head by James Collins' team who missed a penalty before pulling level at 3-3 at the end of 90 minutes thanks to Arlie Desagnes, Tom Fitzgerald and substitute Chris McGinty to force extra-time.
McGinty then added another three in the opening period of extra-time to make it 6-2 on the day before James McDonald netted from the spot to reduce the deficit but Blair, who had been reduced to ten men late on in normal time, were well beaten.
Lydd Town won 1-0 against Orpington at Green Court Road thanks to Paul Burt's 38th
minute penalty and took over at the top of the table because previous leaders Hollands & Blair were playing in the cup. Blair travel to Lindsey Field next weekend.
Basement outfit Crockenhill were unable to build on last weekend's first win of the season when they were beaten 5-1 by Glebe at Wested Meadow. Rocky McMillan's side were 4-0 up at the break through Elyon Marshall, Josh Froggatt (2) and Tyani Eshilokun. In-form Jamal Alexander extended the visitors lead before Mitesh Kobia grabbed a late consolation for the Crocks.
Having previously lost three times to Kent Football United this season, Bearsted finally beat them 2-1 at Otham Sports Club with leading scorer Peter Williams getting both for the Bears before the break, Blessing Adesima pulling one back twenty minutes from time.
Goals from Jamie Williams, Tony Ecuyer and Dan Parish, his 14th of the season, saw Seven Acre & Sidcup to a 3-1 home win over Fleet Leisure at Oxford Road, Joe Degnin getting the consolation. N.B - A full set of Alan Coomes photos from this match are now on the Gallery page

The Boro goals came from Tristan Toney, Eduardo Ndukuba (2) and Kieran McMahon.
