North fight back to earn draw

Bels 2, North 2
NORTH managed to avoid the defeat that would have surely ended their FNB Priaulx League title hopes on Saturday at the Track, but did so the hard way.
The chocolate-and-blues had to come from 2-0 down and needed goalkeeper Tom Creed to save a Chris King penalty to earn a point against champions Bels, for who these were the first dropped points of the season having won their first four games.
The home side were 1-0 up at the break, former Northerner Jack Domaille giving them the lead from close range, and doubled that lead after the interval through Joby Bourgaize.
Simon Tostevin’s header halved the deficit with around quarter-of-an-hour remaining, but Bels then could have made the game safe had King converted from the spot.
However, Creed dived to his left to save the spot kick and late in the game Naro Zimmerman grabbed North an equaliser.
In the weekend’s other Priaulx League matches, Rovers beat Rangers 2-0 thanks to goals from Jack Batiste and Richard Hann after Sylvans had defeated St Martin’s on Friday night with Jon Loaring scoring the only goal of the game.
