The second round of the Bert Bampton Cup was completed on Tuesday night with four District League sides progressing to the third round where all 12 Premier League clubs will enter the fray.
Picton hosted University in a match with a single goal in it which was scored by Ranger Dayne Morley just a few minutes before the half-time whistle.
Balgownie travelled to Thomas Gibson Park to play Thirroul with the match finishing 1-1 before the Rangers progressed 4-2 in a penalty shootout.
The third match was between local rivals Shell Cove and Oak Flats and it was the Falcons who ran out 3-1 winners with former A-League forward Adam Casey netting a match-winning brace.
The final match was at Rex Jackson Park with Helensburgh facing Unanderra.
The match proved a non-contest with the Thistle smashing the Hearts 10-1 with Kade Kinsella bagging a haul and Deren O’Brien picking up two.
In the Youth Cup, Picton, Thirroul, Helensburgh and Oak Flats made it through – the latter only edging Berkely in a penalty shootout.
The draw for round three took place on Thursday afternoon with the first tie drawn out being between Wollongong Olympic and Woonona.
Second-tier Picton was drawn at home to Coniston, Bulli will host Helensburgh, South Coast United will play 2020 District League winners Oak Flats and current Cup holders Wollongong United will visit Balgownie.
The remaining three fixtures are all Premier League affairs with Bellambi welcoming Port Kembla, Tarrawanna at home to Albion Park and Cringila away to Corrimal.
The Youth Cup ties are corresponding to the Bert Bampton Cup matches apart from Wollongong United’s, with the reigning Youth Cup holders set to play Thirroul.
These matches are set to be played on Wednesday, 12 May.
