Green Dragon also continued their strong form in the competition by easing to a 7-1 home win over Hertsmere (Sunday).

The goals were shared around with Luke O'Malley, Dean and Keifer Shuttleworth, Lars Burkhardt, Craig and Dean Parratt and Sam Margerisson all netting against Matt Walsh's sole strike for Hertsmere.

Dome Bar also won 3-2 in their all-Division Three semi-final against Oxhey Lions.

A Garvin Fisher brace and one goal from Michael Napolitano saw Area through after Liam Hanley netted twice for Oxhey.

Tom Toomey, Stuart Duffy and Charles Hailley were the scorers as Chorleywood Club defeated Croxley FC 3-0.

The Stags dominated proceedings from the start and took a deserved lead when Anthony Gilbert scored direct from a free-kick.

With only nine first-team players available, Colne Valley had to rely on reserves just to field the bare 11 as they crashed out of the Invitation Cup to Carpenders Park Rangers to end a poor season.

Valley had the better of the exchanges but were knocked out by a Blake Scott penalty in the first half.

Ashley Armstrong and Adam Bentley were on target as Railway Arms beat Victoria (Joe Cheshire) 2-1.
