Break has no ill-effects for TyneMet

TYNEMET College travelled to Kirklees College following their half term break and came from behind to claim a 4-2 win.

The hosts struck first when TyneMet captain Jack Pinchen mistimed his sliding tackle inside the penalty box and the hosts scored the resulting penalty.

The visitors did have the ball in the net when Tom Ward headed home but the referee had already blown the whistle for pushing inside the box from the corner.

TyneMet did equalise when good work from Michael Baxter saw him take the ball from the defender, rounded the on-rushing goalkeeper then crossed for Dillon Blake to slot home.

However, the scores stayed level for barely two minutes when on 37 minutes a terrible defensive mix up saw Kirklees striker blast home from the edge of the box to restore their advantage.

During the second half TyneMet came out looking get back onto level terms and went close five minutes in when Lewis Scorgie headed over the crossbar from close range.

But the scores were levelled on 55 minutes when Baxter played in Dale Pearson who dribbled past three players and blasted the ball into the roof of the net.

TyneMet took the lead only a couple of minutes later when a left wing cross from Scorgie was glanced home by substitute Juste Akani.

The result was made certain on the hour mark when following some neat interchanges between Tony Lucas and Pearson saw Mikel Thompson slot the ball through a crowd of player’s legs into the far corner of the net.
