Blackstones caused an upset in the United Counties League Cup last night (October 25).

Andy Lodge’s Division One side beat Premier Division visitors Peterborough Nortehrn Star 2-1 and will now play either Rothwell Corinthians or Leicester Nirvana away in the quarter-finals.

Stones took the lead with a 17th minute penalty by Ben Porter after Joe Papworth was brought down in the box by Matthew Cox.

Star drew level midway through the first half when a free-kick by Craig Rook went through the Blackstones wall and in off the post.

The winner came early in the second half from ex-Posh player Lee Clarke after a quickly taken free-kick by Porter.

Aaron Bellairs made two fine saves for Stones to deny Jake Sansby and Sam Wilson.
