Have your say

A penalty shoot-out took Deeping Rangers into the Hinchingbrooke Cup quarter-finals.

Last season’s runners-up will meet Huntingdon Town with the prospect of another home tie in the semi-final against Stotfold, Eynesbury Rovers or Peterborough Northern Star.

It was a long Tuesday night at Hillgrounds to settle the tie which was subject to a 20-minute delay to kick-off.

Scott Mooney put Deeping ahead three minutes before the hour mark.

Shane Bush levelled with 13 minutes remaining to take the tie to a shoot-out.

Mooney also converted a spot-kick along with Scott Coupland, Dan Flack, David Burton-Jones, Luke Avis and Spencer Tinkler.

Jezz Goldson-Williams completes a three-match ban on Saturday as Deeping face boss Michael Goode’s former club Northern Star at the 
Haydon Whitham Stadium.

Meanwhile, Bourne Town meet Lutterworth Athletic at Abbey Lawn in Division One.
