FOUR goals from Tesfa Lowe were not enough for Indian Gymkhana to make the third round of the Senior Open Cup without the help of a penalty shoot-out on Saturday.
Kamil Kharas and Kharum Awan also netted as Gymkhana drew 6-6 at Kodak (Harrow), before winning 4-1 on spot-kicks.
But Jaskaran Padan's goal failed to stop Gymkhana's Reserves crashing out of the Middlesex County Junior County Cup 3-1 to Hanworth Villa 3rds, for whom Anthony Agostini, Sonny Davis and Lee Garwood scored.
Jamie Ingley was another four-goal hero, helping Chiswick Homefields win 6-0 at West London Saracens in the same cup, with Jordan Rocca bagging the other two.
Andrew Isaac hit a hat-trick, while Daniel Isaac, Sam Malik and Graham Warner also netted as FC Assyria beat Shebu Allstars by the same score in the same competition. Also through are AFC Heathrow, who won 5-3 at Hanworth Sports thanks to Jamie Lawrence's brace, plus goals from Malachi Cousins, Derceo Policarpo, and Ben Titchmarsh.
CB HOUNSLOW United boss Roy Wright sympathised with his former assistant Cecil Collins, who left Combined Counties Division One rivals Feltham this week.
Both sides have had difficult starts to the season, but while CB have turned things around with two wins on the spin, Feltham are just one point off the relegation zone.
It would appear unthinkable that the one-time Isthmian League side could be forced to drop into inter-mediate football, but Saturday's 2-1 loss at fellow strugglers Sheerwater, where Scott Pollington-Woods' goal was not enough, leaves them looking nervously over their shoulders.
CB, meanwhile, followed last week's win at Chobham by beating Coulsdon United 4-0, thanks to Andrew Whitman's brace, plus further strikes from Darren Buzzard and Gary Franklin.
Wright said: "We had a tough start to the season, with a lot of injuries. But I'm slowly getting my squad back, and we'll be all right.
"I feel sorry for my old mate Cecil though, he's a good man and will bounce back."
Collins departed Feltham last week only hours before a 3-1 Premier Cup defeat to Chertsey Town, following a brief nine-game spell in charge in which he won three and lost six.
However, one of those defeats was a club record 12-0 hammering by Mole Valley SCR, after only eight players showed up. Former Feltham manager Bob Barnes has been placed in temporary charge.
Also in Division One, Bedfont Sports' promotion hopes were dealt a blow with a 1-0 home defeat to Cobham.
Sports visit Knaphill tomorrow (Saturday), while CB travel to Hartley Wintney and Feltham host Crescent Rovers. [25cf] Lee Higgs made it six goals in four games with another brace for Hanworth Villa in the Combined Counties Premier on Saturday.
Steve Loveridge and Andy Vetesse also netted for the Villains
as they won 4-1 at Colliers Wood United. It was a bittersweet game for Adam Piggott, who set up two goals with crosses, but later went off with a twisted ankle. Villa host Raynes Park Vale tomorrow.
Bedfont, meanwhile, who have no game tomorrow, played out a credible draw with high-flying Chessington & Hook United.
