(Hunts won 5-3 on pens)
IT TOOK a nail-biting penalty shootout but Huntingdonshire U18s eventually edged their way into the second round of the FA County Youth Cup.
Goalkeeper Carl Mackney was the hero, scoring a penalty of his own and palming away Essex's fourth effort to book his county a trip to Sussex in the next round.
Huntingdonshire full-back Jon Hall was taken to hospital with a suspected broken ankle in a game where the home side took the lead through an Aaron Petty penalty after Tom Mills was fouled.

Essex levelled just after the restart thanks to a fine volley from Nick Reynolds which went in off the underside of the bar.
Extra time ended without further score and five perfect penalties gave Huntingdonshire victory. Adam Berrill, Mackney, Petty, James Hall and Tim Runnegar all found the net to ensure Hunts' progress.
