Sheppey were again the more dominate team and took the lead again when a long ball from Ashley Sains was headed to the edge of the D by the defence where Taurean Roberts hit another first timer with his left foot for 2-1 on 61 minutes. A few minutes later Hudson was fouled in the box for a penalty – captain for the day Billy Bennett stepped aside from penalty duties to allow Roberts blast the penalty into the net for 3-1 and a hat-trick – which also meant he was the fourth Sheppey player this season to score a hat-trick.
Sheerwater pulled another goal back on 74 minutes via Jack Beadle but it was the Kent side who held out to put their name in the hat for the next round.
