Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - DRIVE - By Ken McKen­zie

GRAM­MAR U-13s staged a sec­ond-half fight­back to earn a de­served share of the points in this league match at Portlethen.

The home side started the stronger and nearly took an early lead.

Reece Chalmers sent a cross­field pass to Ai­den Cran on the edge of the box but Ai­dan Hodgkins held his low drive.

Portlethen took the lead early on af­ter CRAN bul­leted the ball into the net.

In an ef­fort to stem the flow Gram­mar brought on Craw­ford in mid­field in place of a striker as they held out un­til half-time.

(Half-time: 1-0)

The vis­i­tors were nearly caught on the break when Chalmers lofted a high ball to Matthew Kidd but the goal­keeper did well to smother his lobbed shot just un­der­neath the cross­bar.

It was now backs to the wall for Portlethen as they tried to hold on to their slen­der lead.

Gram­mar grabbed the equaliser with a neat over­head kick from Lachie MCLEOD.
