WOKINGHAM & Emmbrook progressed to the first round proper of the FA Vase after a dramatic 3-1 extra-time win over Highmoor Ibis.
Sumas looked to be heading out of the competition when Ian Griffin gave Highmoor the lead from the penalty spot in the 76th minute.
Matt Jones spurned a glorious chance to equalise when he missed a penalty at the other end, but he then won a another spot-kick late in the game.
This time Khalid Senussi stepped up and successfully converted to send the game to extra-time.
And Jones and Tom Williams both netted to set up a first round proper tie at home to Marlow on October 13 at Larges Lane (3pm ko).

Sandhurst Town eased through the second qualifying round with a 6-1 victory over Milton United.
The Fizzers will now host Wantage Town at Bottom Meadow in the next round on October 13.
