Coldham took the lead again but a strike from Ian Booty curled the ball into the top left-hand corner levelled it at 2-2.

Coldham got their 3rd just before half time. After the break Andy McClagish found the back of the net to make it 3-3, Fen Stars had a fourth goal disallowed for off-side. This meant extra-time, which Fen Stars played with 10 men but stayed in the game, and also had a goal ruled out for off-side.

But the Coldham players held their nerve to win on spot-kicks.
