BALDOCK Town Youth Templars under-12s entertained Pin Green Juniors in Division 2 with the sides settling for a 4-4 draw.

And the home side were left stunned when Pin Green grabbed two goals within the first five minutes, but when Jordan Massey pulled a goal back from George Higginson's cross - it was game on.

Massey then returned the favour to set up man-of-the-match Higginson and the two teams were level inside 15 minutes.

However, two minutes later Pin Green were back in front with Baldock responding with an immediate equaliser courtesy of another Higginson strike.

The visitors made it 4-3 after 20 minutes soon after, in an entertaining end-to-end game.

And when Baldock were awarded a free kick on the stroke of half-time, Matthew Judges fired home to make it 4-4.

The second half was far more sedate, with both teams seemingly wearing themselves out. Pin Green were denied a winner, with William Budd clearing off the line.

And Baldock had a chance with Alex Close forcing the Pin Green keeper into a magnificent save with five minutes left.
