Under-18s suffer late 2-1 defeat at Middlesbrough

Hosts stage second-half comeback to take three points

TWO Middlesbrough goals inside the last nine minutes inflicted a disappointing defeat on Albion’s Under-18 side on Saturday in the Barclays U18 Premier League.

The Baggies bossed the first-half and deservedly went in 1-0 up at the break thanks to Sameron Dool’s deflected cross.

However with time running out, the home side stepped up a gear and equalised in the 81st minute from the penalty spot before scoring again four minutes later to steal all three points.

ALBION: House, Piggott, Pritchatt, Artymatas, Melbourne, Wilson, Dool, Meredith, Forss (Holsgrove 73), Scrivens, Pierce.

Unused subs: Hall, Morrison, Phillips, Wilding.
