George and Dragon found some Easter treasure as they gained revenge on PJ Hitchin to reach the semi-finals of the Challenge Cup.
Just seven days earlier, PJ had thumped the Dragon 7-2 but just to prove that you are only ever as good as your last game, G&D won thanks to a solitary Mark Nunn goal.
In the Premier Division, Whitwell won a double header against Kcinsatop.
The first match finished 3-2, Whitwell scoring through Wayne Mullooly, Dean Mullings and Wayne Ewington Kirby.

AEK Letchworth now top the Division One table after winning 4-2 at Wanderers. Martin Wright, Steve Smith and Matt Wilson (with two belters) gave them victory, after goals from Stuart Smillie and Mark Norriss had sent the sides in level.
Ocean's Eleven beat Offley Parish 5-2 and leapfrogged them towards the foot of the table.
Crown Stotfold enjoyed their second victory in less than 72 hours as they followed up a 1-0 midweek win against Kcinsatop Res (Tom Ginger) with a 6-3 home success against HTS Barleycorn Res.
Matt Evans (two), Luke Nicholl (two), Gareth Brown and an own goal proved enough despite goals from Anthony Grundon (two) and Ben Gerrard.
In Division Two, Shillington travelled to Wanderers Res and despite having injury problems enjoyed a 3-0 success, Ross Woodbridge and Dan Bentley among the scorers.
Broadmead drew 2-2 at Radcliffe Arms, while braces from Greg Keller, Lee Gibbs and Gary Dowling gave The Park a 6-0 win at home to AC Malone Res.
Wilbury will be hoping to end the season on a high after their best performance of the season saw them defeat Paynes Park 7-2.
Allan Drossler, the Wilbury manager, spoke of his delight following the victory: "It's been a tough and difficult season, so all credit to the lads for a performance like that."
Their goals came courtesy of Terry Gunn (hat-trick), Gareth Carter (two), Rhett Monahan and Luke Taggart.
Tonight (Thursday) sees Radcliffe Arms host Shillington at Walsworth and SMU Res entertain the George and Dragon at The Creamery as both visitors look to improve their own title aspirations.
Sunday sees a full programme of fixtures and the first cup final of the season as Cannon play Whitwell in the Reserve Cup Final (6.30pm ko at Arlesey Town).
Support at all the cup finals would be greatly appreciated.
