HOLYWELL Town mounted two dramatic late comebacks and then won a penalty shoot-out to knock neighbours Prestatyn Town out of the Nathaniel MG Cup.

The Seasiders appeared to be cruising into the last 16 when they led 2-0 in the 88th-minute thanks to goals from Noah Edwards and Ben Maher, but Brady McGilloway pulled a goal back to give the Wellmen hope and Graeme Williams duly equalised in the third minute of stoppage time.

Once again, Prestatyn were on the verge of moving to the next round when Jack Higgins scored but, in a minute of added time at the end of extra time, Jon Jones fired home from a corner.

Visiting keeper Carl Jones saved Josh Robertson's penalty to give Prestatyn the advantage in the penalty shoot-out, which used the ABBA system for the first time in Wales. But Damien Ketley's spot kick was saved by Joe Griffiths who then kept out a kick from keeper Jones before Jon Jones won the match 5-4.
