Giant-killers Stoke Lane see off Ashton Boys with Sidhall's winner
STOKE Lane Colts Under-12s caused a big cup upset by beating Ashton Boys, from the division above them, 3-2.
Ashton took the lead and looked to be well on their way, only for a deflected Harvey Lewis shot to find the net for Colts and make it 1-1.
Visiting Ashton regained the lead early in the second half, but Ethan Ansell equalised for Division Five side Stoke and it was game on.
And, in the closing minutes, fine work from Harry Collett found Gurpreet Sidhall down the right, who unleashed a fierce shot into the back of the net to dramatically win the game for Lane.

Meanwhile, Mangotsfield United Under-12s swept to an emphatic 8-2 second-round success against Nicholas Wanderers, in which Harry Fitzsimons and Mitchell Jeffreys turned in joint man-of-the-match displays.
Jeffreys opened the scoring with a well-worked goal and an assist from Fitzsimons before Mangos went 2-0 up when Fitzsimons struck after Jake Henderson had teed him up.
Spirited Wanderers pulled one back, but Lewis Leslie's free-kick over the Wanderers defence enabled William Young to shoot past the keeper and Corey Jackson rifled Field's fourth into the top left-hand corner after more good work by Fitzsimons.
Second-half strikes by Edward Croucher (2), Jeffreys and Jacksonsaw Mangos double their goal tally, as did their opponents who struck again late on.
Broadwalk Under-12s put up a brave second-half fight, but could find no way back as they were felled 4-1 by travelling Avon Athletic in their second-round tussle.
The hosts found themselves 3-0 down at the interval playing against a stiff wind.
With the wind behind them in the second half, Broadwalk pulled one back through star man Keegan Thorne's penalty.
As they threw caution to the wind, Broadwalk were finally undone at the death by a superb solo goal.
Downend Saints Under-12s flew in into a 2-0 lead against in-form Stoke Lane , eventually going down 6-3.
Hallen Under-13s always knew they faced a tough time of it when drawn away against Ashton Boys, and so it proved as the home team secured a 3-1 victory.
The away side did start brightly and had some great chances early on through Ben Alexander and Joe Hodson, but it was Ashton who took the lead, only for Hallen to hit back through Hodson following a strong run and cross by Alexander.
However, Hallen switched off for a crucial five-minute spell before the break and were punished by two more Ashton goals.
Both teams had good chances in the second half, in which Tyler Edmunds was outstanding in goal for a hard-working Hallen side who couldn't quite force extra-time.
Warmley Rangers Colts Under-13s progressed to the quarter-finals of the Plate with a nailbiting 8-5 second-round win away against Rockleaze Rangers Colts.
Warmley were two goals down after five minutes and struggling to defend, before Morgan Coles, who went on to claim a hat-trick, and Nathan Wilkes, who went one better by firing four goals, found their form.
Their visiting team came back well to lead 3-2 at the break thanks largely to keeper Chris Archer's last-minute penalty save to end the half.
Warmley extended their lead after the break with Wilkes scoring again and midfielder Jack Sirl blasting home an unstoppable shot from distance to make it 5-2.
Yet Rockleaze dramatically hit back with three goals in five minutes to bring the scores level again with some great football, before Warmley did likewise by netting three times in similar time through Coles and Wilkes to complete a thrilling tie.
In a repeat of last season's final, holders Ashton Boys Under-13s again came out on top against runners-up Hallen, whose current winning streak came to an end in 3-1 defeat against the unbeaten league champions.
Alfie Clark fired home from outside the box to give Ashton the lead and while Hallen quickly levelled up, Dominic Barassi's through ball was perfect for Newman Ball to outpace the Hallen defence and cross for Dan Payne to make no mistake from close range.
Neat footwork by Payne and then Ball led to the latter ghosting into the box and again providing the final pass for Sam Hilton to blast Ashton's third into the net.
Ashton settled quickly after the break but despite hitting the woodwork on two occasions they were unable to break down a robust Hallen defence.
A Dan Notley triple and Cian O'Mahony brace handed Keynsham Town Colts U-16s a convincing 5-0 away win over Coalpit Heath. A clean sheet was assured the visitors when Jordan Arberry saved a last-minute Coalpit penalty.
Bitton Under-16s progressed to the last eight with a 2-0 victory over Avonmouth at the Rec. They opened the scoring with a fine first-half Vini Pinto effort before securing the win late in the second half through a clinical strike from debutant Arian Bahadori.
Broadwalk Under-15s entered the quarter-finals of the Avon Youth Plate courtesy of an impressive 5-2 win against battling Bradley Stoke United.
Calum Rogers' cracker soon opened Broadwalk's account, but Bradley Stoke quickly equalised to make it 1-1 at the break.
The second half started with two goals being hit in rapid succession by Broadwalk through Kai Sedgebear and Kevin Pearce's acrobatic shot from the edge of the box.
Pearce extended Broadwalk's advantage to 4-1, and although Bradley Stoke pulled another goal back, Kallum Phillips sealed Broadwalk's place in the last eight with their fifth.
Tom Leslie and Adam Gunn grabbed the Bradley Stoke goals.
