AQUATIC Sports were on cloud nine again as they sealed a place in the Alan Hood Memorial Trophy semi-finals.

Aquatic, still boasting a 100 per cent league record, led Park View 9-0 from the first leg of their quarter-final clash, and they repeated the dose with a 9-1 demolition in the return.

Liam Laidler and Michael Conlon both grabbed hat-tricks to set up the 18-1 aggregate victory, supported by Ryan Morse and two-goal Mark Fisk.

Clark Robinson bagged a consolation for View, whose star man was Steven Harrison.

Oddies defeated Corner Flag 3-1 away from home to win through 8-2 on aggregate.

Ian Dodd netted for Corner Flag, but star man Kirk Hardy, Stephen Allan and Martin Thompson gave the visitors the edge. Steven Freeman stood out for Flag.

Hendon showed no mercy in their 17-0 second leg rout of hapless Last Orders, Adam Wasey leading the way with a ruthless seven-goal haul.

Adam Cushingham added a hat-trick, with Leighton Cooney (2), Brett Chapman, Warren Cassap, Steven Clark, Martin Cullen and Mark Wasey also on target.

University of Sunderland staged an impressive fightback to clinch progress to the quarter-finals.

Beaten 4-3 by Cheers in the first leg at home, the students were under pressure in the return but came good to record a fine 4-1 success, securing a 7-5 aggregate triumph.

Star man Emmanuel Tenny (2), Kris Teale and Peter Deary did the damage, with Alan Miller on target for Cheers, whose man of the match was Gavin Ackroyd.

Hall Farm also won through their first round tie, and next meet the University lads.

Up 3-2 from the first game, they outgunned visitors Whitburn Village 5-0 to seal an 8-2 aggregate success.

Man of the match Dean Smith plundered a hat-trick to maintain his prolific form, with subs Lee Pearce and Chris Bewick also on target. Kevin Freidel stood out for Whitburn.
