Dumped Out On Penalties!

In a game that saw a dozen goals, went to extra time and then penalties, Newcastle found themselves out of the cup in the first round. But, after all it was only the ZDS Cup so I don't think there were many tears shed.

Extra Time

At the end of extra-time the score was 6-6! So then the game had to be decided on a "penalty shoot-out" which Tranmere won 3-2.

Notes
