Leyton Orient U18 2 – 2 Peterborough United U18

Football League Youth Alliance SE Conference

ORIENT came back from 2-0 down with three minutes to go to rescue a dramatic point against Peterborough United at their Woodford Green home on Saturday.

The O’s looked dead and buried with the Posh holding what looked to be a strong two-goal advantage as the final whistle neared.

But the Londoners had other ideas and fought back to make sure their unbeaten start to the campaign would continue for a third game.

Elyon Egbeku gave the O’s hope with his second goal of the season for 2-1, and there was more drama to come when the hosts were awarded an injury time penalty for a foul on Harrison Georgiou.

Rob Nash took the responsibility from the spot and made no mistake a grab a 2-2 draw and a share of the spoils for Andy Edwards’ under-18s.

Orient: Charlie Grainger; De’Reece Vanderhyde, Sean Grace, Alex Finney (Sam Ling 46), Kevin Kwarteng; Elyon Egbeku, Rob Nash, Harry Lee, George Wickings; Sinclaire Sandy (Josh Uzun 65), Harrison Georgiou
