Whitworths 2 Huntingdon Town 3
CHRIS Caswell netted his fourth goal in four games as Huntingdon sprang a surprise at last year's league champions.
Town boss Darren Young was delighted with the win and saw his side get off to a flying start on two minutes when Caswell netted with a header.
The good start got even better when Adam Taylor made space for himself outside the Whitworths' box to drive in a left-footed effort.
Huntingdon's luck changed 10 minutes later when Andy Brown was dismissed for a second bookable offence and the home side reduced the deficit just before the break.

Ten-man Town sat back after the interval and successfully hit the home side from a set-piece five minutes into the second half.
Matt Burrows climbed highest at the back post to put his side into a 3-1 lead but the home side soon pegged the game back to 3-2.
The Town defence began to creak slightly as the home side heaped on the pressure but the visitors held on.
Young said: "We played hard, controlled football that fully deserved the win and the place in the last 16.
"We are playing a style of good, attractive football that makes us pleasing to watch.
