Whitfield Town, boasting a bunch of dead ball specialists, kicked past Police National 5-3 on penalties in lively round one action on the weekend of the 2018 JN Bank Visa/KSAFA Jackie Bell Knockout.

Christopher Clarke, Prince Robinson, France Walcott, Alphanso Graham, and Delamay Rodney nailed the kicks for the Ira Hemmings-guided Whitfield who will host Super League team Santos in round two of the knockout this weekend.

Also, menacing Meadforest, fired up by a Fabiki Farquharson hat-trick, mowed down hosts Shortwood United 5-0 in their encounter. The other scorers were Ian Davis (29th) and Omari Edwards (45th).

Meadforest will go up against Bull Bay, 3-2 winners against August Town on penalties, in the second round.

The Lij Simms-instructed Meadforest were so dominant that Shortwood player Jerome Smith walked off the field in frustration and was duly red-carded in the 33rd minute.

Simms was disappointed with his team's second-half display, but they have underlined themselves as title-contenders in all available competitions this season.

In other round one matches, Andre Smith scored in extra time to ensure Swallowfield's 1-0 win over New Kingston, while Constant Spring blanked Seaview Garden's 2-0.

Duhaney Park bested Allman Woodford 4-2 on penalties after Richard Cephas and Quanzie Campbell tied up the match 1-1 after regulation and extra time.

In round two, Constant Spring will travel to Central Kingston, Swallowfield welcome Rockfort at Stadium East and Liguanea United, who outlasted Red Hills 2-0 thanks to Mitchly Waugh and Tavin Brown, tackle Brown's Town at Liberty Academy.

Molynes United will take on Real Mona and Rae Town meet Pembroke Hall in other round two matches comprising Super League teams.
