Honley FC were dumped out of the West Riding County Amateur Football League Division Two Cup by Bay Athletic Reserves 5-4 after extra time.
It was a thrilling cup tie which displayed some brilliant attacking football from both sides in very challenging conditions.
Bay opened the scoring after just 10 minutes through Nathan James but, Honley were disappointed it came from a defensive misunderstanding between Jordan Robinson and John Elliott to gift the visitors the lead.
However, stand in captain Dylan Brett was on hand just 10 minutes later to level the scores with a brilliant long range effort which found the back of the net.
The two early goals set the precedent for what was going to be a memorable cup game, but the fans had to wait until the 60th minute to see more goal action, when James Clapham used his speed to get away from the visitors back line and score from the edge of the area with a
sublime lobbed shot.
Bay responded well, pressuring the Honley backline, but the home side looked comfortable until a soft penalty was awarded to the away side which was calmly converted.
Oliver Willetts then put the hosts ahead for a third time in the 84th minute and looked to have sealed his sides place in the next round with an unstoppable 30 yard strike which smashed off the under side of the cross bar and over the line.
At 3-2 Honley were playing the clock down by holding the ball in the corners, but it wasnt enough as they made another defensive error when failing to deal with a long clearance down field, which gifted James the chance to score his second of the game and take the cup tie to extra time.
Extra time was an incredibly open affair with players tiring significantly and Honley once again edged in front with a goal from Ben Lindley, but they failed to see the game out as Bay capitalised on a poor clearance from a corner early in the second period.
It was Tom Brennan on hand to smash home his rebounded header off the woodwork and level the scores for a fourth time.
Penalties were looming with just seconds left on the clock when James stunned the home crowd by completing his hat trick with a remarkable 30 yard pile driver which nestled in the bottom right hand corner of the net to send Bay Athletic through to the next round.
But Honley do have the chance to bounce back quickly when they travel to play KKS Spartans this Saturday in the Huddersfield FA District Cup.
