PORT Talbot caused the only real upset of the Welsh Cup's third round when they knocked out Premier league high-flyers Aberystwyth at Victoria Road.
Revenge was sweet for the south Wales outfit who lost to Aber in last season's competition.
Striker Craig Hughes was the hero when, with penalties looming, he struck the winner 23 minutes into extra-time.
Aber had looked home and hosed, leading 1-0 from a Lee Spike goal with the game deep in stoppage time.
But defender Liam Hancock broke the visitors' hearts with a stunning strike to take the game into the extra period.
Elsewhere, Cymru Alliance side Holyhead Hotspur came closest to claiming a Premier League scalp, as they led 2-0 at Caernarfon with two goals in two first half minutes from Casey Jones and Nigel Moore.
The Canaries had to wait until the 77th minute to get back into the game with a Leigh Williams effort and sealed it with two late goals from Tim Brandreth and Calvin Davies to deny the plucky visitors.
Another Anglesey village club, Bodedern, gave Connah's Quay Nomads a good run for their money. A Rhys Roberts penalty equaliser threatened to take the tie into extra time, until hitman Tommy Mutton claimed his second.
A second half goal from Chris Summers earned Cwmbran a place in the last 16 at Llanelli, where many had predicted an upset was on the cards.
John Felton helped Afan Lido overcome Pontardawe with a brace of goals in a five minute spell just before the interval.
Steve Rogers scored his second hat-trick of the season against his former club, Newtown, to propel Welshpool Town into the next stage, 3-1.
There was no hint of a shock at Llanfairpwll as last year's beaten semi-finalists, Rhyl, comfortably secured their place in the fourth round draw with goals from Walters, Powell, Moran and Limbert.
NEWI Cefn Druids hit the day's highest score, with a 7-0 demolition of near neighbours Buckley Town. Anthony Williams scored a hat-trick to add to goals from Danny (2) and Joe Desormeaux, and Osian Jones.
