Dun Cow endured extra-time heartbreak in the Herts Sunday Senior Cup final at Letchworth.

Adam Clarry gave Queen's Head Sandridge the lead before Glen Draper's cross-shot had taken the game to the extra 30 minutes where David Yeo won it.

Nirankari Sports Sabha went top of the Premier Division after being handed three points by Stevenage Fencing for the second successive week.

In Division One, another forfeit, Sporting again versus MBDA, who finish third.

In Division Two, yet another forfeit as Station were awarded a double header victory as Triage only had seven men. They are now well placed to pounce.

Breachwood Lions went to the top of the league for 24 hours as John Harvey put them in front with a chip.

A Graham Crisp volley, Danny Jefferies, Ali Collins and Adam Burnage struck against White Diamond Security, for whom Hayden McColm netted a brace.

ProCladd were once again short of players, just one this time, but still led Newman by four at the break through George Rowe (two), Carl Fletcher and Neil Henderson.

Their opponents finally made their advantage count by getting back to within a goal through Steve Bull (two) and Dean McKeown. Fletcher scored again to settle matters.

Coopers regained top spot on Monday night after the committee allowed the score to stand after they had led ProCladd by two goals a month ago before their opponents went down to six men due to injury.

The Division Three title is almost certainly going to come down to a shoot-out on the final day when Hogshead meet Pin Green.

Broadhall Res' challenge was practically ended by Hogshead as goals from Ben Crisp and league top scorer Steve Teale, his 28th league goal, came as consolations late on. Jamie Campany hit a hat-trick, the second goal was a delicious chip over a 'keeper just two yards off his line.

Adam Lusby (two), Ricky Mait and Lee Dowsett with a header and a 25-yard strike put them out of sight.

Lee Setterfield, Steven Young (two), Craig Benham (two), Greg Bradbury (two), Jan Pearce, Daniel Merry and a Brendan Harper penalty did the damage as Fox thrashed AFC Stevenage. Kyle Brown scored twice in consolation, Ryan Gregory's spectacular effort was their highlight.

Hen and Chickens started with 10 men, and also lost their goalkeeper after going five-down to Pin Green after half an hour. Richard Griffiths (hat-trick), Colin Field (two), Lee Stevens, Paul Ryan and Dave Baldwin were on target in total.

Despite Dave Byatt's missed penalty, Andy Jackson netted his first goal for MBDA Res after a great midfield run ended with a superb first touch and finish across the goalkeeper. Provider of the goal Hayden Jones netted a second-half brace after Si Wagstaff had put through his own net to equalise for White Horse.

The Invitation Cup interest is hotting up with semi-finals scheduled for April 30.

Carl McColm (hat-trick), Mark Moorby, Paul Underwood, Aaron Mason (and not brother Joel!), Paul Coxall's overhead kick and Alex Headington were on the mark for Bedwell Athletic.

They now lead the table after thrashing Marquis of Lorne, Scott Collins and a 35-yard overhead kick off the post from Carl Thompson grabbed their goals.

Granby St George are also still on course after Craig Longman's penalty just about earned a point with their three-goal advantage. James Khakpour-Smith banged in a hat-trick for Rileys to add to an own goal.

A John Saunders hat-trick for Bottles downed Stevenage Colts.

Despite being bottom of the entire league, Tom Kelly bagged a hat-trick as MC Racing beat King Pin United. Lee Horsley added the other.

After a heavy defeat a week earlier, Rising Sun bounced back as the brothers ran riot over Coopers. Kaan Fehmi hit a brace, little brother Keven added another. Danny and Joe Delasalle, plus Danny and Tom Hillard joined in. Joe Chilton gatecrashed the party with the other.

Ben Shearing (two) and Lee Allinson were on target for FCFL to no avail as SBS won as their goal advantage added to an own goal and strikes by Chris Bunker and Daniel O'Brien.

* This week's big games see Bottles and Dun Cow go head-to-head for a place in the KLM Challenge Cup final.

Their opponents will be from outside the Premier Division, where Division One champions Mallard take on Division Three title contenders Pin Green.
