Carlisle Utd 3 Exeter City 3: Deep breath, three more days, and then we go again. And who can say how it will end, this already dramatic, absurd, wildly flawed and stupidly compelling play-off semi-final?
Exeter City 2 Carlisle United 3: By Carlisle United's standards, it was all rather dull. They kept the ball near the byline, smuggled a corner and a throw-in from Exeter City, and before the home side could get it anywhere near the away team's half, the final whistle blew.
Carlisle United 2 Newport County 1: This, presumably, is why Carlisle United went for Nicky Adams in the first place: so that the quality would announce itself at the clutch moments, when the pressure is mounting, when only the best players in League Two come through.
Yeovil Town 0 Carlisle Utd 2: Keith Curle tried to lighten his team's mood in preparing for this outing in Somerset by playing them some comedy clips. And thankfully, for the first time since mid-February, dark humour wasn't needed to lift the Carlisle supporters' mood on their long way home.
