BLYTH Spartans Under-15s bounced back from their cup defeat the previous week to earn a league victory over a useful Grainger Park side at the weekend.
In a competitive first half no advantage was gained as attack after attack was foiled by both defences.
The second half started frantically, and certainly whatever was said to Blyth’s players in the dressing room at half-time had the desired effect as they came out with more purpose.
Their attacks were a little more cutting edge and after a fine through ball by Jake Whisson, Samuel Johnson’s fine turn and shot clipped the top of the bar for the game’s first real chance.
Blyth’s first goal came half way through the second half when fine wing play first by Kyle Mills fed Luke Watson whose mazy run and pass allowed Johnson to tap in.
Grainger certainly were not fazed by this and continued to attack with purpose, however, there resistance was finally broken around five minutes from the end when a through ball from man of the match James Gillie found Liam Wall who rounded the goal keeper and shot low into the bottom left corner.
With four games left Blyth still have there destiny in there hands.
