DEBUTANT Damase Kiwanda scored an extra-time penalty in a 3-2 defeat of Goytre that sent Airbus into the last 16 of the Welsh Cup.

With the scores deadlocked at 1-1 after 90 minutes, the Wingmakers took the lead for the second time in the game on 97 minutes when a cross from Luke Busumbru was put into his own net at the far post by the unfortunate Ross Shergold. And, five minutes later, Kiwanda was brought down in the box and stepped up to defeat goalkeeper Giles Cutland from the spot.

With Wes Baynes, Mark Jones and Pavel Vieira all sidelined, manager Steve O'Shaughnessy handed starts to youngsters Joe Davies and Harvey Ellis, and Airbus should have had the game won by half-time as they missed a string of chances. Steve Tomassen headed against an upright from a corner, Alfons Fosu-Mensah had a shot saved after being set-up by Kiwanda and, after Cutland had dropped the ball from the corner, Leo Riley saw his shot from the rebound blocked on the line.

After the break, Fosu-Mensah fired straight at the keeper before Airbus took the lead on 55 minutes when a shot rebounded off a post for Riley to stab home. But, eight minutes later, Callum Miles scored an equaliser for the Gwent outfit.

In extra-time, Kiwanda could have settled it when he blasted a Busumbru pass over a gaping goal but made amends with his penalty as the Wingmakers held out for the final 12 minutes after Luke Prosser had pulled a goal back.
