ALLENDALE Town U15 lost to Ponteland in the Pin Point Junior League.

It was a very even encounter for the opening half hour, with chances at both ends. Allendale’s Dan Priestley fired just wide with one notable effort.

However, It was the home team who scored first, and they added a second soon after to lead 2-0 at half time.

Allendale responded well, and scored early in the second half with a well worked goal.

The build-up began with goalkeeper Ellis Bradley, who rolled the out to a full back.

After some neat passing through midfield, the ball fell to Ronan Humphrey who played a superb delivery in behind the defence for wide man Dan Priestley to chase.

Humphrey controlled the ball well and fired his shot low into the left corner of the net, notching a memorable goal.

Allendale continued to chase the game but left gaps in midfield which Ponteland took advantage of. Clinical play from the hosts made it 3-1 on the counter attack.

The away team were unlucky in front of goal towards the end of the game as they tried to find a way back, but Ponteland held on to win the match from the penalty spot in the closing minutes. Man of the match for Allendale was Ronan Humphrey.
