The Rosey are into the Premier Division League Cup semi-finals after a dramatic penalty-shootout victory over The Great Northern at Welwyn Playing Fields.

Tim Jolly grabbed the opener for The Rosey but Matt Standen notched the equaliser to make it 1-1.

Neither side could bag a winner leading the game to enter extra time.

In the first half of extra time, Jay Welsh converted a penalty to put The Great Northern ahead but Jolly was on target for The Rosey once more.

Mitchell Harrison gave The Rosey the lead for a second time before Daniel Waller snatched another leveller to take the game to penalties.

The Rosey held their nerve the better to advance 5-3 on spot-kicks.

In the Memorial Cup, Daniel Harper scored twice as Shamrock Rovers Reserves progressed to the last four with a 2-1 win over Hatfield Mosquito.

Harper’s 30-yard strike wrong-footed the Mosquito goalkeeper for 1-0.

In the second half, Mosquito’s captain Oliver Collinson hit a free-kick, which cannoned off the post, and fell at Dean Norris’ feet and he calmly slotted the ball past the keeper.

Late on Harper nodded in the winner to see Rovers Reserves through.

Back in the Premier Division, Curtis Warner netted five goals as Hatfield Seniors smashed The Cock 6-3.

Jaidan Doocey was also on the scoresheet for Hatfield Seniors.

Charan Basra, Chris Weeks and Alex Canter replied for The Cock.

There was also victory for new league leaders Shamrock Rovers as they thrashed second-placed The Grove 9-2.

Dan Worsley hit four goals with Reggie Ross and Leigh Nymm both grabbing a brace and Sean Brettell completing’s Shamrock’s rout.

Ade Hammill and Nathan Studholme both got on the scoresheet for The Grove.

Bradmore Rovers are up to third in the Premier Division after a come-from-behind 5-3 win over Sun Inn Lemsford.

Martin Farrer (two) and Stef Saywell put Lemsford 3-1 up at the break with Dan Reade reducing the deficit for Bradmore.

Cue the Bradmore comeback with Daryl Archer and Ennis Daly both on target before Jason Upson converted two to secure the three points.
