Shildon are still unbeaten in the Ebac Northern League First Division, but they were held to a 2-2 draw by North Shields at Dean Street on Wednesday night.

Shields had two good chances through Lee Mason and Dan Wilson early in the game, but missed them both, and before half-time Shildon player-manager Bobby Moore had an effort off the Shields line.

But Shildon took the lead on 48 minutes when Billy Greulich-Smith nodded the ball across the area for Micky Rae to chest down and fire past the Shields keeper.

However, Shields levelled on 67 minutes through James Luccock from a Mason free-kick.

But 3 minutes later Shildon were back in front when Adam Burnicle fired home from the edge of the box.

With a minute left, Gary Ormston levelled with a bullet header.

Bishop Auckland were beaten by a last-minute goal at home to Ashington.

Bishops nearly took the lead on 5 minutes with a deflected free-kick by Priestley Griffiths that Ashington `keeper Conor Grant just managed to parry, then Thomas McAloon saw a left-foot shot from ten yards deflected wide.

Ashington had a great chance when Ben Harmison broke clean through, but scooped his effort over the bar.

Bishops sub Andy Johnson had a great chance to win the game, but missed from a couple of yards.

However, Bishops were opened up in the last minute of normal time when Dale Pearson broke up the left and set up Harmison to score from a few yards.

In the Second Division, Chester-le-Street had a good 1-0 away win at Blyth AFC, Dan Maddison scoring their goal just on the hour-mark.
