FC Halifax Town progressed to the next round of the West Riding County Cup after beating Goole on penalties.
The game finished 3-3 before a much-changed Town side won 4-2 on penalties.
Senior players Shaun Rowley, Simon Lenighan and Mekhi McLeod were given run-outs, but other than that it was a youthful Halifax team for the game.
Goole took the lead after 15 minutes when a long-throw was slotted home.
They hit the bar shortly after the interval before Josh Schofield doubled their lead.
But Town mounted a fightback, and eventually equalised through a Jake Taylor penalty.
Town then looked to have won it when they took the lead 10 minutes from time, but Goole’s Adam Lund forced the tie to penalties.
Subs: Simpson, Hill, Wade, Da Costa, Janis.
