The Hitchin Sunday Football League round-up

Kcinsatop's season is in danger of falling apart at the seams as they suffered their third defeat on the bounce.

This time they exited the Challenge Cup at the quarter-final stage against Division One side AEK Letchworth.

Goals from Stuart Potasnick (two), Sean Evers and Scott Rennie were not enough for Kcinsatop as AEK netted through Micky Smith (hat-trick), Matt Bond and Calvin Rowley.

AEK will travel to another Premier Division side, Engineers Henlow, in the semis.

Crown Stotfold reached the final of the George John Memorial Trophy after beating Shillington 4-1.

Red Star ICL are back on top of the Premier Division after securing maximum points from their double header with AC Malone.

The first game finished 3-0, James Campbell (two) and Leon Palma netting.

The only game in the division not requiring a double header was at The Grange where SMU hosted Kcinsatop Res. A goal from Brett Hammond for Kcinsatop Res was not enough to stop them slipping to a 3-1 defeat.

In Division Two, Broadmead picked up four points from their two games with Baldock Sunday.

The first match ended 3-2 to Broadmead, Steven Young (two) and Alex Foreman for Broadmead, Louis Healiss (two) for Baldock.

George and Dragon travelled to Finchley to take on AC Finchley Select in the semi-final of the Herts Sunday Junior Cup.
