Liam Robertson, Wayne Carter Sam Pepper and Cameron Mulhearn all scored for Dringhouses but they were matched by double strikes from Chris Allan and James Hopwood.

Cup favourites Dunnington defeated Brooklyn 3-2 after a closely fought battle. Andy Rose struck twice and Samson Wildwood was also on target for the Reserve A leaders. Chris Smales bagged a brace for Brooklyn.

There was nothing to separate Malton and Norton and Thorpe United after 90 minutes, but Thorpe edged into the next round with a 5-4 spot-kick victory. David Hawe, Matthew Pearse, Nathan Patrick and Byron Summers were the Thorpe hitmen whilst Rich Stevenson, Joe Jefferson and Steven Hoggard (2) found the net for Malton and Norton.

Stamford Bridge and Poppleton United were also level at full time. Danny King and Curtis Bowles were the Poppleton scorers but goalkeeper Ash Nelson was the hero after the day after saving a penalty in the match and three more in the shootout.
