COLLIE Power men's travelled to Balingup to take on fierce rivals Blackwood in the quarter finals of the South West Cup.
The defending champions of Collie were put under immense pressure and went down early on from a corner.
The Blackwood player headed in off the post to make it 1-0. Shortly before half-time, Grant Cresswell put Jac Hollins through who's powerful shot across the keeper made it 1-1 at half-time.
Collie managed to go 2-1 up from a wonderful free kick by Daniel Kearney to Hayden DeAngelis who after a great run, brought the ball down and slotted past the keeper from close range.
This lead would not last however as the hosts capitalised on a failed clearance in the Powers defence. At 2-2 the match went straight to penalties.
Blackwood skied their first effort to give Collie the advantage.
The first four of the Powers penalties were all successful, however DeAngelis's effort was saved which took the shootout into sudden death.
Blackwood missed to the left and up stepped Ryan Loxton who slotted his penalty to win the game for Collie. They now advance to the semi finals.
