RHOOSE FC 5
CORNELLY UNITED 4
TRAILING 2-1 to their South Wales Senior Soccer League opponents at one stage, Rhoose struck twice in extra-time to progress in the FAW Trophy competition.
Leading 3-2 late into injury time in Saturday's goal fest, Rhoose were taken into overtime by a late, late equaliser.
Reasserting their authority, Rhoose quickly moved into a 5-3 lead, but the home side's nerves were on edge after a successful late penalty for the visitors and added time of more than five minutes following an injury.
Rhoose scorers were Nicky Davison (two), Drew Fahiya, Joe Hinds and Jacob Daley.
Rhoose are back in Macwhirter Welsh League action on Saturday with an away trip to Cardiff side Bridgend Street at the Willows School in Tremorfa; kick-off 2.30pm.
