TEMPLARS fought back to take a share of the spoils thanks to a Daniel Nicholson goal.
Pin Green started strongly with two strikers and a clear desire to attack, but as the game went on Baldock began to put some good moves together and it was against the run of play that Pin Green finally scored after 15 minutes.
Baldock started the second half well. A Matthew Judges free-kick was only just over the crossbar. Judges, Connor Doyle and Nicholson were putting together some great passing moves.
Nicholson made a good run down the wing and a clever pull back gave Ryan Savage a good opportunity but the shot went wide. Baldock were now doing all the attacking.
Iain Angus came on in defence and Alex Close moved into midfield. The change paid off as Judges passed the ball to Close on the left wing.
A great cross from Close was flicked on by George Higginson and Nicholson made no mistake with a clinical finish to score Baldock's equaliser.
Royston Town Colts U-14 0
Royston Celtic 8
CELTIC completed a comprehensive league double over their local rivals with this one-sided victory.
The first half was a fairly even affair and only a strike from Conor Barnard separated the two sides at half time.
The second half was an entirely different affair with Barnard scoring his second after only five minutes and shortly after ex-Colt Drew McReadie added to the scoreline.
Barnard completed his hat-trick and a fifth was added by Tom Higton. Celtic were unstoppable and the goal tally continued to mount as a result of some excellent free-flowing football.
The scoring was completed by Dion Jones, who netted the final three goals for Celtic's second hat-trick of the game.
Celtic require three points from their remaining three games to ensure that they finish the season as the top Royston side.
Royston Celtic U-14 1
Knebworth Youth 4
Celtic slumped to defeat after their comprehensive win.
A defensive lapse allowed the visitors to take the lead after 15 minutes. This lead was quickly doubled before an excellent four-man Celtic move ended with Will Dickerson netting to reduce the deficit to 2-1 at the half-time interval.
The first goal of the second half was always going to be crucial and it was Knebworth who scored this as a result of another defensive mix-up.
Celtic were unable to go through the gears and only looked threatening on the occasions they injected some pace into the game, and a fourth goal for the visitors just before full-time gave a fair reflection of the game.
Royston Colts U-8 A 1
Melbourn Dynamos A 0
COLTS again controlled this game Justin Leavers covered every blade of grass and scored the only goal of the game in the first half.
The hosts should have had lots more, Jordan Cooney again was strong at the back, Melbourn could not compete and did not look like scoring.
Royston Colts U-8 B 0
Melbourn Dynamos B 0
THIS game could have been 45 minutes each way and nobody would have scored.
However, it looks like Royston have found a great new player Eamon Henderson who covered most of the pitch and was out standing in his first game for Colts so one to watch out for next season.
