Billy Terrell produced another outstanding display as Wimborne Town progressed to the first round proper of the FA Trophy for only the second time in their history.
The young goalkeeper pulled off a series of excellent saves in the Magpies’ 4-2 win over Southern League Division One Central outfit Thame United.
Terrell has been in fine form for James Stokoe’s team this season and played a key role as the visitors banked £2,450 in prize money following their win at the ASM Stadium.
Harry Morgan netted twice inside the opening 12 minutes to give the Magpies a 2-0 lead before Terrell made two important saves to keep them in front at the break.
He saved with his legs after Ryan Blake had seized on a poor backpass before thwarting Lynton Ross who had looked certain to score having gone through one-on-one.
Terrell was powerless to prevent Blake from halving the arrears at the start of the second half but Curtis Young struck to restore Wimborne’s two-goal advantage.
And after Addwell Chipangura had made it 4-1 to the visitors, Terrell drew gasps from the crowd when he somehow managed to keep out a header from Goss.
Although Dan West netted late on, victory ensured Wimborne would avenge a 5-0 defeat at the hands of the Red Kites in the first qualifying round of the FA Trophy in 2017/18.
Brooklyn Genesini featured for Poole Town as they exited after going down 3-2 against Southern League Division One South high-fliers Frome Town.
Genesini made his seventh appearance for the injury-hit Dolphins who were missing leading goalscorer Tony Lee and influential skipper Jamie Whisken.
Will Fletcher headed Tom Killick’s team ahead in the 17th minute at Badgers Hill, only for the Robins to hit back through Kane Simpson.
Goals from Rex Mannings and Jon Davies put the hosts 3-1 ahead at half-time before Luke Burbidge reduced the arrears midway through the second half.
Although Poole laid siege to the Frome goal, they were unable to fashion an equaliser, the £625 prize money small consolation for the Dolphins.
Euan Pollock was left kicking his heels after Truro City’s scheduled clash against Cirencester Town on Sunday was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at Bolitho Park. It has been rearranged for Tuesday.
Jake Scrimshaw went close to adding to his goal tally in Scunthorpe United’s 2-1 defeat by Colchester United the JobServe Community Stadium.
Scrimshaw, who has netted twice for the Iron this season, saw his header from a Myles Hippolyte centre hit the crossbar in the eighth minute.
Former Cherries star Charlie Daniels provided the assist for Colchester’s fifth-minute opener, his free-kick hooked home by Freddie Sears.
Armando Dobra doubled Colchester’s lead in the 14th minute before Harry Davis netted to give Scunthorpe hope in the 82nd minute but the hosts held on.
Ryan Glover made his third appearance for Aldershot Town in their 2-1 defeat by Barnet at Hive Stadium.
Glover replaced Mo Bettamer just after Shots debutant Mo Sylla had drawn them level, firing home from Lewis Kinsella’s 56th-minute free-kick.
Although Sylla’s strike cancelled out Kian Flanagan’s first-half opener, the Bees sealed victory through Rob Hall four minutes from time, leaving Aldershot one place off the bottom.
