Izibet FA Trophy: Qala qualify for Round of 32

Qala Saints were the last team to reach the Round of 32 of the Izibet FA Trophy after they came from behind to beat Sannat Lions after extra-time in a match from the Preliminary Round at the Kercem Arkafort Stadium on Tuesday. 

Sannat took the lead thanks to Camilo Andres Sanchez Gonzales eight minutes from the end of the first half but an own goal on the 90th restored equilibrium, forcing extra-time.
