A DRAMATIC comeback saw Ponteland Blacks U14 complete a league and cup double.

With the Gateshead Youth League already won, the side faced Reheugh Boys Club in the final of the league cup.

But things didn’t start well for Ponteland as Redeugh, with the wind in their favour took the lead.

It quickly became 2-0 as a superb free-kick from the Gateshead side found the net.

Ponteland finally began to settle, but conceded again and were three goals down at half time.

This season’s prolific strike force of Ben Kershaw and Joseph Nicholson both scored in the second half to reduce the deficit to 3-2, which set up a thrilling final 20 minutes.

Ponteland continued to pile pressure on the Redheugh defence. Nicholson hit the post, while Thomas Scougall saw his effort cleared off the line.

Finally, the equaliser arrived when Josh Kohli’s inch perfect corner was powerfully headed home by Omar Tumia.

With their tails up, Ponteland pushed for the winner which duly arrived when Scougall fired home from the edge of the box to seal the winner, much to the delight of the travelling support.

l Ponteland Munich were 3-2 winners over Cramlington United Thundercats. Munich took a 2-0 lead thanks to a Rhys Johnson header, and a neat finish from Ben Kershaw which finished off a superb team move.

Kershaw then hit the bar as half time approached, but Cramlington hit back to score two goals to bring the scores level.

A superb Charlie Rigg save kept things level before Ben Kerhsaw won a header to send Joseph Nicholson through, and the latter finished to secure the points.

l Ponteland U12 Girls battled bravely against league leaders Newcastle East End.

After conceding a number of early goals, the girls scored twice thanks to an Emily Mallaburn double, and a tremendous showing by goalkeeper and player of the game Ella Mae Penny.
