Barkingside crashed out of the Gordon Brasted Memorial Trophy in the first round on penalties to high-flyers Takeley.
Side clawed their way back from two goals down to level the game and make it 2-2 but fell short as they lost 5-3 on penalties at Cricklefield Stadium.
George Wappett and Nicky Barrett gave their side a 2-0 lead with the later scoring a wonder free-kick but the hosts found a way back thanks to Tony Cookey who managed to take the tie to penalties.
Takeley will now face Hackney Wick in the second round of the cup competition.
Barkingside will now host league strugglers Waltham Forest at Cricklefield Stadium on Saturday (3pm) as they look to break their losing streak.
Michael Walther’s men currently sit 13th in the table and will be hoping they can start climbing up the Essex Senior League.
