Wallsend had the best of the first half, taking a 2 nil lead into the sheds as they took on Thornton, in their round 2 catch up game.

The Redbacks never looked out of it though, a hard fought second half making it 2 all.

However in the end there was no fairy tale for Thornton, Wallsend finding a goal deep in injury time to claim a 3 – 2 victory.
