Two goals in final ten minutes win three points

TYNE Met College hosted York College at Complete Football in an ECFA Premier League game.

And it was Tyne Met that came away with the points after a 4-2 win.

The home side kicked off at the impressive Complete Football facility and it took 17 minutes for the hosts to take the lead following a glut of chances.

It was Adam Cole that opened the scoring with a powerful finish from the edge of the area.

Tyne Met extended their lead on 25 minutes when Dan Young picked up a loose ball from outside the penalty area before dribbling past two players and slotting the ball past the despairing keeper.

Tyne Met, however, did not have it all their own way and York pulled a goal back on 37 minutes when a defensive mix up allowed their striker to head home from close range.

Early in the second half, John Wears and substitute Michael Elgie went close.

York then drew level when a low strike flew past the diving Michael Bertram.

Tyne Met dug deep and with ten minutes remaining an Elgie through ball saw Young race clear and he volleyed past the advancing keeper.

It was soon four goals as another through ball by Elgie saw Adam Cole take it past the recovering defender and then around the keeper to slot the ball into the empty net.

There was still time for Tyne Met to have a goal ruled out as a Young run saw him pick out Joseph Ajibade who finished coolly from close range only for the referee’s assistant to rule that the ball had gone out of play in the build up.
