A Mochdre Vets line-up from early in the season

Mochdre Vets celebrated their first-ever win when they defeated Point of Ayr 5-3 in extra time.

Joe Drawbridge’s Mochdre side went two-up, the Colliers halved the deficit, the visitors made it 3-1 and Point then netted twice to force an added half-hour.

Martin Anderson delivered a double in the second period to send Mochdre through just as penalties were looming.

In what was a fiery game, Chris Patrick (2) and Chris Berrington were also on target for the winners.

Connah’s Quay Nomads Vets trailed 1-0 at half time to Mynydd Isa Spartans, but goals in the second period from Tommy Leonard and Shaun Beck booked the Deesiders a place in the next round.

Dave Brereton and Lewis Norman were on the mark in Holt and Farndon’s 2-1 success over Buckley.
