Gosport kept up their Southern League premier play-off push with a 2-1 win at Barwell.

But it was a night to forget for the Hawks as they bowed out of the Hampshire Senior Cup after a 3-1 quarter-final defeat to Sholing.

Gosport made it 16 matches unbeaten as second-half goals from Dan Woodward and Danny Smith kept them moving up the table.

At the fourth time of asking after a string of postponements, the Hawks finally played their tie with Sholing.

And things looked rosy when Steve Ramsey put them into the lead.

But Lee Bradbury’s under-strength side found themselves 2-1 down at the break, before another goal in the second half put Sholing through.

In the Wessex League premier division, Moneyfields trounced Romsey 6-2 courtesy of goals from Warren Hunt (3), Dan Gauntlett, Steve Hutchings and Harry Page.

Horndean were also victors, beating Fawley 2-1 after second-half efforts by Dan Hayes and Matt Andrews.
