Liam Harrold scored twice for Blackstones.

Stones beat Division One rivals Huntingdon Town 4-1 at home while Holbeach won by the same scoreline against visitors Sleaford Town in all-Premier Division tie.

Stones needed extra-time to progress. It was 1-1 after 90 minutes and Stones hit the back of the net three times in extra-time.

Liam Harrold scored an equaliser for Stones just before half-time and in extra time Danny Barker, Jones De Sousa and Harrold again were on target.
