South West Peninsula League Premier Division Bodmin Town, now the last Step 6 side left in the competition, kept alive their Emirates FA Cup adventure as a late, late 97th minute from Jake Ash gave them a 1-1 draw in the Second Qualifying Round and a replay next Tuesday away at Evo-Stik League South & West outfit Bideford.

Playing the delayed tie at a wet and windy Wednesday night at Priory Park, Bodmin matched their Step 4 opponents as they battled for the trip to Haringey Borough in the next round.

If supporters had arrived late or left before the final whistle, they would have missed both goals as Bideford had led from the 2nd minute, thanks to Ryan Turner`s goal after good work from Craig Duff.

But they will have to do it all again on September 26th.

There was, however, a positive outcome in Wednesday`s replay between Toolstation Western League rivals Cadbury Heath and Bridport.

The sides shared a 2-2 draw last weekend, and it took an extra 30 minutes to separate them in the replay.

Richard Hebditch gave Bridport an early 8th minute lead that Tom Richardson doubled in the 22nd minute.

But Heath fought back and eventually reduced the deficit on the hour-mark.

And then 2 minutes into stoppage time, Matt Huxley forced extra-time with Heath`s equaliser.

But Ed Butcher won it for the visitors in the 19th minute of extra-time and they will now travel to Clarence Park to face Vanarama National League South side St Albans City in the Third Qualifying Round.
