Liam Houghton’s fantastic hat-trick inspired Port of Call to an impressive victory, 3-1 against South Shields Caer Urfa, clinching a home tie against Ferryhill Celtic.

TC Plastics’ County Cup dream continued with a brilliant 3-0 win at Easington Southside.

Josh Farquhar, Reece Thompson and star man Steven Anderson all found the net.

The Park enjoyed a stroll as Vince Pattison’s lads hammered Jarrow Civic 8-1 away.

Ryan McCollin and Lewis Fairley hit their usual doubles, with Micky Pattison, Dillon Clark, Lewis Ross and Dan Ross increasing the lead.

Sunderland Railway Club earned a battling 3-2 win at Wrekenton Stormont Main.

Star man Scott Wallace, Connor Glendenning and Jake Baker hit the vital goals.

The Royal Marine secured a great win, 2-1 against a good Easington Welfare side. Liam Grant and Gary Richardson rallied Marine after an early deficit.

Jolly Potters’ adventure was cut short in a 3-1 loss at Chilton WMC.

Ryan Bussey hit Potters’ only goal and little brother Neal Bussey saw red to cap a miserable day.

Nathan Ridley hit the only goal for Kings Arms as they were dumped out 3-1 by visitors Billingham Station. Steven Jeffries shone for the Kingsmen.

Terminus won an excellent game 5-4 at Herrington CW in Division Four.

Herrington had only themselves to blame as they had Sean Clifton sent off, just they had a chance to get something from the game.

Herrington had James Morrison (3) and James Lyall on target, but Nathan Stavers hit a brace to inspire the visitors, backed by Paul Muir, Ryan Parkin and Joe Stoker.

It was goals galore at Thompson Park as Mill View CIU and The Grange played out a 4-4 draw.

The Dolphin regained winning ways with an easy 7-2 win over Nookside.

Chris Wilkin (3), Thubron, Wardle, Hourigan and Wayne Davis sparked Dolphin, while Nookside’s Jack Barnes hit a brace.

AFC Houghton’s latest heavy defeat, 9-0 to Washington Arms, means they have now shipped 45 goals in eight games.

Washington moved top, led by four-goal Lewis McGeoch, Philliskirk, Tench, Thompson, Young and Terrell.

Witherwack demolished Washington Juniors Blue Bell Inn 10-0, with four-goal Graham Stephenson and Nathan Robinson (3) leading the way.

Jac Fleury, Lee Catcheside and Leon Johnstone also netted. The floodgates opened and goals came thick and fast. Paul Watson shone for Blue Bell.
