DEFENDER John Boardman scored his second goal in five days to put Colwyn Bay in the next round of the FA Cup.
The Seagulls had enough of the game to have won by more, forcing 14 corners to Parkfield’s two, but twice hit the woodwork and had two other efforts cleared off the line.
The Yorkshire side’s constant fouling earned them five yellow cards and a red for defender Andrew Battersby 10 minutes from the end.
But at 2-1 there was always the threat of a late equaliser and Bay were relieved to avoid a replay.
Bay started the game brightly and were in front after 13 minutes when man of the match Jamie Olsen ran onto a pass from John Lawless and played a neat one-two with Anthony Murt before striking a low shot past keeper Darren Bonnington from 20 yards.
But Parkgate equalised with a controversial goal on 25 minutes when Caine Cheetham barged a Bay defender off the ball and was allowed to run on unchallenged to beat Jamie Speare.
Boardman headed Bay back in front from a John Lawless corner three minutes into the second half and they dominated much of the play after that, but the Seagulls could not kill the tie off.
“We didn’t play as well as we can but we’ve kept our unbeaten run going and are in the next round, which is the main thing,” said manager Gary Finley.
