Rampant Wisbech Town carried on their stunning recent form with two five goal wins.
On Saturday, the Fenmen came from behind to beat Northampton Sileby Rangers 5-1, their fifth United Counties League win on the spin.
They fell behind in the fifth minute but responded with goals from Jon Fairweather (2), Tommy Treacher, Danny Beaumont and Josh Ford.
On Tuesday, all sailed into the quarter finals of the Knock Out Cup with a 5-0 win at Peterborough Northern Star.
After a goal-less first 45 minutes, the Fenmen produced a scintillating second half - Ford hit a hat-trick and Matt Lunn bagged a brace.
Wisbech are home to Cogenhoe United in the quarter finals.
Wisbech manger Dick Creasey said: “I didn’t rant and rave at half time. I just told the players they needed to improve everything - passing, workrate and quality - by 15 per cent.

“All the credit should go to the players. After three minutes of the second half, we were 2-0 up.
“In the last five games we’ve scored 22 goals and conceded one. You’ve got to be pleased with that.”
Up next for Wisbech are away days at Harrowby United on Saturday and Boston Town on Tuesday. Both teams have changed their managers.
Creasey said: “These are two difficult games. I don’t like it when you go to a team where the manager has just left, and we’re going to have to face that twice.
“Normally, under new management, there is a response, so we need to be on our guard and make sure we do our job properly to keep our winning run going.”
