Both Ellerton and Rendezvous are heading into the Round of 16.
Six teams from the lower leagues are still in the running as the Stag Beer Champions Cup rolls into the Round of 16 this week. With the annual knockout competition getting up to a fever pitch since kicking off back in April, the sheep have been separated from the goats as the last 16 sides remain in the competition.
Division 1's Barbados Soccer Academy heads up the group which includes the likes of Youth Milan, Haynesville, Wotton and the Barbados Defence Force. Also making their presence felt are the Division 2 wonder-boys Central League Spartans.
Soccer Academy advanced to this round of a 1-0 win over top-tier Empire Club in their last match, while Youth Milan were 2-1 winners over fellow Division 1 side Fitts Village West Coast. Haynesville were 3-1 winners over College Savannah who hail from the Gregory Goodridge Zone in Division.
Wotton had no mercy for Division 1 debutantes Potential Ballers and whipped the newcomers three goals to none in their game, while the Barbados Defence Force edged out L and R United. The Spartans were giant-killers as they sent home Premier League stalwarts, Notre Dame.
The other 10 spots have gone to top-flight teams with Britton Hill United, University of the West Indies Blackbirds, Rendezvous, Barbados Defence Force Sports Programme, Compton, Ellerton, Silver Sands, Porey Spring, Paradise and defending champions Weymouth Wales all booking berths.
Brittons Hill moved forward after a 4-2 win over Division 1's Pride of Gall Hill, while the Blackbirds decimated Caribbean United from Division 2, eight goals to two. Rendezvous have been having a hard time in the Premier League but made short work of Kick Start in their last knockout game to come away with a 2-0 win.
The BDF Sports Programme were 3-0 winners over Ivy Rovers of Division 2, while Compton gave no quarter or showed any mercy to Division 3's Evans Maughan Soccer Academy who saw their run coming to an end in the third round.
Division 1's Bagatelle made it relatively easy for Ellerton to move forwards as they had no replies for the three goals that were put over the line. It was easy going for the 2017 triple-crown champs Wales as they knocked home six unanswered goals past Mavericks (Division 3), who also had their campaign ended after doing well enough to make it to Round 3.
Silver Sands managed to get by Division 1's Deacons, five goals to three, while Porey Spring were 2-1 winners over Benfica who hail from Division 2. Paradise rounded out the top flight teams with a 7-1 win over Pinelands who have seen better days since going down to Division 2.
Getting started tonight, and running into next week, the action goes to Speightstown and Friendship. At 7:00 PM in Speightstown, Barbados Soccer Academy go up against Youth Milan for a third time this season. The 9:00 PM match will pit Haynesville against Ellerton.
Over at Friendship, Central League Spartans will be looking to give Weymouth Wales a run for their money at 7:00 PM. The nightcap goes to Wotton and Paradise at 9:00 PM.
