CONNAH'S Quay suffered late woe in extra-time as they crashed out of the Irn-Bru Cup at Dumbarton.

The Nomads took a 26th-minute lead when the referee spotted an infringement following a series of scraps in the home box and pointed straight to the penalty spot and Callum Morris duly stepped up to send Scott Gallacher the wrong way. On 54 minutes Nomads' keeper John Danby was forced into a superb reaction save to deny a powerful overhead kick from Christian Nade and the visitors held on to their advantage until eight minutes from the end of normal time when Dimitrios Froxylias whipped in a corner which David Wilson fired through the defence and into the net after the ball had ricocheted out.

The game look certain to go to a penalty shoot-out until, two minutes from time, George Horan was sent-off and, from the resulting free-kick, Dimitris Froxylias snatched victory for the Sons.
