Darren Russell and the red-hot Jono Gaon sealed the win.

David Joseph Cohen bagged a brace for Team.

Blancos boss Jonathan Ison told JC Sport: ""Our cup run continues with a well deserved win - it was not the easiest of conditions as the makeshift pitch in Burnt Oak was not in such a great way, but we were still able to come away with five goals and probably should have scored more.

"The game ended with quite a few spectators who happened to just be wondering through the park, so we like to think we have done our bit to improve tourism in Burnt Oak. This was our way of helping out with all that was happening for Mitzvah Day!"

SPEC FC's Ricky Lawrence told JC Sport: ""Raiders are very good. Phil might just be the second best manager in the Jewish league."

Faithfold's goal came via Doron Hershkorn.

Faithfold boss Dan Yoss told JC Sport: "We outplayed Norstar for most of the game with two crosses being our downfall. Apart from that our keeper didn't make a save. We're a different team from the beginning of the year and it's down to our manager Rob Shooman who has worked tirelessly over the past three months putting a competitive team together. Next week we'll be taking it out on Haroldeans."

AC Whetstone joint-manager Clive Nathan told JC Sport: "Despite our heaviest defeat, I remain very proud of the boys. We didn't do ourselves justice for a 30-minute period in the first half and let in five goals in that time."
