BUNTINGFORD Cougars under-10 Blues battled back to earn a 2-2 draw against Knebworth Youth A & B in their first league match of the season.

The Cougars started slowly and, despite having the majority of possession, found themselves 2-0 down at half-time.

But the Blues were much improved after the break and a dipping long-range effort from Jack McMeehan reduced the deficit.

Sam Ward tapped in from a yard out to restore parity and Ryan Peck almost won it for the visitors but his fierce strike was superbly saved by Knebworth's goalkeeper.
