James Pearson power decisive for Bees
Match-winner James Pearson, right, makes a tackle for Bingley Bees against Huddersfield Dragons Fourths
Bingley Bees recovered from an early setback to beat Huddersfield Dragons Fourths 2-1 in Division Five North of the Yorkshire League.
The third-placed Bees made all the early running in what proved to be a good-natured but highly-competitive game.
But they were stunned as a well-worked short corner routine gave the visitors a 17th-minute advantage.
Yet the lead was short-lived as Stephen Booth deflected the ball into the net from an equally well-drilled short corner just two minutes later.
With the scores level at the interval, it was Bingley who were left to contemplate their missed chances.
The second half was much the same, with Bees pressure amounting to nothing until James Pearson took control to grab the winner.
A superbly-weighted pass allowed him to power into the D and unleash a cracking shot to the far corner with 15 minutes remaining.
The Bees women’s teams had a blank weekend.
