They beat Royston Town Girls 10-1 with Isabella Corby leading the goal spree after netting four times.
Isla Tracey struck a treble with Eva Fraser scoring twice and Matilda Bastin-Northcott also netting after a fantastic team performance.
The Under 12 Pink girls' team were also victorious after a 2-1 win against Peterborough RTC in a cracking contest.
United led 2-0 at the interval following goals from Lilly Mitson and Jules Kelsey.
Mitson's strike from outside the box showcased her precision and power while Kelsey's goal from a tight angle in the box left everyone in awe.
Despite having another goal disallowed due to a tight offside call, Kelsey's contributions were undeniable.
Player of the match went to Libbi MacGregor for her rock-solid defensive prowess which played a pivotal role in securing victory
Hannah Cradock was named the improver of the week for her tenacity, coupled with her dynamic runs down the wing. This created a dynamic partnership with Imogen Nightingale, who also had a stellar performance.
Madison Lethbridge showcased her goalkeeping finesse, Bea Greenham delayed attacks with her jockeying skills, Bella Curtis held her ground at left-back, Matilda Walker's pace electrified the right wing, and Annabel Shepherd displayed versatility as both a central midfielder and striker.
With an eye on their eagerly awaited second-round cup game this weekend, United are primed and ready for their next thrilling adventure on the pitch.
Isla Cummins hit a hat-trick for Deeping United Under 13 Girls in their 5-0 away win at South Lincs Swifts in the Lincolnshire League.
Cummins put United in control with a quick-fire brace which was followed by a 30-yard screamer from Ezmae Clark to make it 0-3 after 20 minutes.
A fourth from Deeping captain Milly Talbot just before half-time gave the squad the cushion they needed to make a few changes at the break to allow for squad rotation and player development in the second half.
During the second 35 minutes, the Deeping girls were unable to find the same rhythm they showed in the first but, with several changes, this was to be expected.
They did, however, maintain control of the fixture and ensured that goalkeeper Jess Rock-Jerram's clean sheet was never really threatened.
The scoring was rounded off thanks to Cummins' third goal while player of the match was Lily Tomlinson with an outstanding display after moving to centre back for the first time.
The Under 9 girls hosted title favourites Langtoft and both teams produced a great team performance.
