More Nicks a late winner for Harton's boys; UNDER-15 DIVISION.
HARTON and Westoe saw off battling Sunderland Redhouse 3-2 in a Premier Division meeting.
Redhouse took the lead with a early goal from Owen Crossley.
Redhouse piled on the pressure, keeping Harton on the back foot.
However, the South Tynesiders equalised against the run of play through Aaron Carr's clinical finish at the back post.
The game turned for a while at this stage, Harton hitting the woodwork on two occasions but failing to find the net.
Redhouse then caught out Harton with a dangerous long ball, Matthew Robson showing the quickest reflexes to nip in front of the Harton goalkeeper and make the score 2-1 at half-time.
The second period began at a similar frantic pace with Harton seeming to have more composure in defence and applying plenty of pressure in the final third of the pitch.
Again, though, they were unable to capitalise with several goalmouth scrambles being cleared by a resolute Redhouse defence.
Joshua Crawford finally found the equaliser, drilling the ball into the bottom corner.
Harton took the match to the Wearsiders, mounting attack after attack.
In the last few minutes of normal time the pressure paid off as a far-post cross from Reece Smith was headed into the goal by Nick More for Harton's winner.
