Sumas looked to be heading out of the competition when Ian Griffin gave Highmoor the lead from the penalty spot in the 76th minute.

Matt Jones spurned a glorious chance to equalise when he missed a penalty at the other end, but he then won a another spot-kick late in the game.

This time Khalid Senussi stepped up and successfully converted to send the game to extra-time.

And Jones and Tom Williams both netted to set up a first round proper tie at home to Marlow on October 13 at Larges Lane (3pm ko).
