AMERSHAM Town shocked Flackwell Heath in a 120-minute thriller to advance into the FA Vase second round on Saturday.
Trailing 2-0 at half time, Amersham attacked from the 46th minute onwards but after Philip Sole scored early, they did not find a richly deserved second until Scott Chapman's brilliant injury-time equaliser.
The drama continued in extra-time with substitute Grant John's 98th minute goal, and after the visitors scored from a controversial penalty five minutes later, Oliver Woodall won it with a wonderful chip on 118 minutes and booked a spot in the second round for the first time since 1980.
They will take on Sussex County Division One side Rye United at Spratley's Meadow on Saturday, November 17.
It sparked a celebratory pile-up featuring all Amersham's players and staff, apart from Shane Thomas, who had collapsed with cramp after playing the key pass to Woodall.
Elsewhere, Chesham United needed a stoppage time equaliser to draw 2-2 with Bedford Town in the Evo-Stik Premier Division One. In Division One, Chalfont lost 2-1 at Daventry and Beaconsfield SYCOB won 1-0 at Fleet before manager Byron Walton stood down.
An 8-2 mauling by Ampthill Town saw Holmer Green sink to the foot of the Spartan South Midlands Premier Division table.
