Matt Haywood's overtime goal saw Glasgow Clan beat Cardiff Devils in the Challenge Cup quarter-finals.

Devils came into the game with a 4-3 lead from the first leg in Glasgow and Layne Ulmer increased their advantage.

Goals from Scott Pitt and Gerard Hanson's brace put Clan ahead, Ulmer and Joey Haddad restored Devils' lead, but Travis Ehrhardt and Vaclav Stupka were then on target for Glasgow.

Gleason Fournier's goal for Devils forced overtime, before Haywood struck.

Devils had edged Clan in the first leg, after romping into the lead with goals from Stephen Dixon, Charles Linglet and Joey Martin.

Zack Fitzgerald and Brenda Connolly pulled goals back for Clan in the second period, but Matt Pope's strike kept Devils 4-2 ahead.

However, Stupka's late goal for Clan left the tie delicately balanced for the second leg at the Viola Arena in Cardiff.
