An 85th-minute penalty broke Frickley’s hearts as they went down 3-2 to Nantwich in the Evo-Stik Premier Division.
Joe Guest’s late spot-kick, after Patrece Liburd was dismissed for his second yellow card, sank Frickley.
Earlier, Frickley fell behind after five minutes when Harry Clayton’s drive looped in from 25 yards.
Frickley’s reply was instant, however, as Jamie Wootton headed an equaliser a minute later.
Town regained the advantage in the 26th minute through Charlie Raglan, before Jake Picton seemingly rescued a point with his 83rd minute strike.
Two minutes later, however, Liburd brought down Clayton and Guest sealed the points for Nantwich.
Parkgate, meanwhile, made the short journey to West Yorkshire to visit Nostell Miners Welfare, and returned with all three points after a comfortable 3-0 victory.
Martyn Lee gave Parkgate the lead after only three minutes, when he met a through ball from Adam Shepherd and lobbed the onrushing Welfare keeper Lee McGrath.
Sam Smith doubled their lead on 18 minutes, converting Jamie Smith’s pinpoint pass, and Smith added his second with ten minutes remaining to seal all three points for the impressive Parkgate outfit.
