Nathan Lamey fired holders Halesowen Town into the semi-finals of the Worcestershire Senior Cup with an extra-time winner to defeat Kidderminster Harriers.
Yeltz top scorer Lamey, who had earlier been denied by the woodwork, guided home a 25-yarder just two minutes from the end of the extra period to seal a 2-1 win at Aggborough last night.
A much-changed Harriers had taken the lead on 17 minutes when Tom Byrne produced a precise finish after his initial effort had been blocked by Halesowen defender Dave Haywood.
But the Southern Premier visitors were level three minutes after half-time. Simon Forsdick's shot rebounded off the post and Chris McHale cleared off the line but in the following scramble Yeltz striker Howard Forinton was bundled over by Troy Manning. Steve Pope, who missed a penalty last Saturday, was unerring in his spot-kick.
Keith Rostill's goal was too little, too late as Alvechurch's hopes of a Birmingham Senior Cup giantkilling were dashed by Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The Midland Alliance hosts were far from outclassed but Wolves' youthful line-up just edged their third round tie with a 2-1 verdict at Lye Meadow.
Chris Cowes' goal gave Wolves a sixth-minute lead and Mark Salmon doubled the lead before Rostill netted in injury-time. Wolves now visit Nuneaton Borough in the quarter-finals.
Luke Reynolds struck twice in the final moments to give AFC Telford United a dramatic 3-2 win over visitors Gresley Rovers in the UniBond Challenge Cup.
Though Bucks favourite Darren Alexander levelled matters on 56 minutes, Gresley top scorer Aaron O'Connor added his second of the game seven minutes later, having opened the scoring inside ten minutes. But Reynolds levelled in the last minute and then slotted home an injury-time penalty. n Improving Stourport Swifts have targeted Bromsgrove Rovers defender Phil Male as the next piece of their jigsaw.
Manager Roy Rencher's revamp has been rewarded in the past fortnight with back-to-back wins to climb out of the bottom two in Southern One West and he wants former Bedworth man Male to add to the defensive options after on-loan Chris McHale returned to Kidderminster.
However, Swifts expect to have Lee Ross, who has signed forms from Studley, in action in this weekend's clash with Dunstable since fellow forward Richard Burgess is away at a wedding.
Evesham United boss Dave Busst has hinted that he would like Jermaine Clarke to return to their ranks for the Festive period after his loan spell at Redditch United.
Striker Clarke, on target in the Reds' weekend draw at Barrow, has had two months with Redditch but the last game of his spell will be Saturday's home game with Harrogate.
Busst says he will have talks with counterpart Rod Brown and the player next week. ..SUPL:
