An extra time winner from Thomas McGhee sealed Milton’s place in the next round of the regional cup, in dramatic fashion against an unlucky EKYM side.
Milton were looking to consolidate on a 2-0 victory in the previous round, whereas EKYM would have been looking to bounce back from a disappointing 3-0 defeat to Milton Rovers in league action.
It was an end to end game in the opening stages, both sides getting near the oppositions goal, but when the ball came into the final third nothing quite seemed to click.
The first real opportunity being presented to Jordan Glassford, whose header was saved well by Milton keeper Alistair Wallace. Eventually, in the 33rd minute there was a breakthrough, with Ryan Carlin firing a stunning free kick high into the top corner, giving EKYM the advantage in what was a very tight affair.
However, less than 90 seconds later Milton broke up the park. Dylan McCafferty found himself with space in the penalty area and turned home a neat half volley to level the scoring.
