Taunton v Truro penalty shoot‑out  Empty

Truro City lost an epic cup match which equalled the record for the longest penalty shootout in English football.

City and Taunton Town needed 34 spot-kicks to separate them after drawing 2-2 in the Southern League Challenge Cup second round on Wednesday evening.

The teams equalled the record set in an EFL Trophy match between Chelsea's under-23 side and Oxford United in 2016.

Taunton finally won the shootout 12-11 when Jack Rice netted their 17th penalty to send his side through.

The two sides finished 3-3 after the regulation first five penalties, and both scored with their next five in sudden death.

Each team missed their 11th penalty and scored from the next three before appearing to lose their nerve.

Both missed kicks 15 and 16 and City’s Austen Booth also missed his side's 17th to allow Rice to finally settle the tie with the fifth opportunity his side had to wrap up the shootout.
