WALLINGTON’S winning run came to an end when they sacrificed a two-goal lead against Seaton Delaval Amateurs on Saturday.

Two first half goals from Kyle Reardon had put the Greens in a commanding position in the Northern Alliance Premier Division encounter. And the on-form side looked odds-on to win their eighth consecutive home match, before they were forced to settle for a point.

Wallington’s two-goal advantage in the first half came as they were playing into a strong wind, with goalkeeper Aaron Carr not able to reach the halfway line with several kicks.

But they defended resolutely and created several chances before Reardon, who netted the previous week’s winner against Shankhouse, put them ahead from the penalty spot, after Bradley Richardson was brought down in the box.

Reardon, who also had a shot saved during the first period, was on target again following an impressive team move involving John Meehan and John Paxton.

It led to a Jake Walton cross from the right, and midfielder Reardon scored with a downward header at the far post.

After the break, Seaton Delaval’s changes were limited, but they were clinical.

The hosts pulled a goal back with a converted cross, after breaching Wallington’s high line, before scoring another five minutes later.

Walton struck a free kick wide of the target in the closing stages, while Jonny Edwards came close to converting from a corner.

Reardon said Wallington ‘s second half performance was not up the the standard of recent matches.

However, he stressed there were many positives to take from the game.
