Reepham Town 2, Caister 3 (aet)
A 2-0 half-time lead was not enough to see Reepham through to the Junior Knockout Cup final. Beau Howard smashed in two goals and was looking for a perfect hat-trick.
Three or four good chances were missed by the Robins just after the restart and the visitors' goalkeeper Dave Beale made a tremendous save from a Colin Emberley free-kick.
The remainder of the game went a little flat, until with eight minutes to go Reepham keeper Paul Hawes clutched a ball to his chest, only to have it kicked out of his grasp and popped into the net by Stuart Shellard.

Things still looked safe for Reepham as the game went into the 90th minute, but Caister forced a corner and Grant Johnson got a head to the ball and it was extra time.
An extra-time penalty was converted by David Beales to give the visitors the victory.
