Second-placed North Shields kept the pressure on Ebac Northern League Division One leaders South Shields by beating Dunston UTS 3-2 last night.
Ryan McGorrigan timed it perfectly to grab a last-gasp winner, getting them back level on points with the Mariners.
Dunston led with a 21st minute Jack Donnison own goal. Gary Ormston fired home left-footed to level, but UTS regained the lead through Scott Heslop’s smashing finish.
Ormston’s second goal made it 2-2 on 82 minutes, before McGorrigan had the final word.
