Torquay United were defeated 5-4 on penalties by Conference South side Eastleigh in the final of the Errea South West Challenge Cup.

The shootout came after the sides managed a 2-2 draw in normal time.

The Gulls had looked to be slipping to a 2-0 defeat until two goals in the final seven minutes.

Youngster Ashley Yeoman got their first after 83 minutes from a Mustapha Carayol cross, with Carayol netting the equaliser soon after.
