Peterhead Jags and Banks O'Dee Albion Under 16s shared the spoils in a 2-2 draw at Watson Park, Cruden Bay with a draw a fair result for both sides, however frustration that chances missed cost both sides the opportunity for three points as the title race becomes more intense.

The hosts were in pole position going into the game and continued top of the summit after the result, it was the visitors who had a barrage of attacks in the opening five minutes of the game, Logan Watt had a few chances denied by Owen Park, Watt had another chance on nine minutes denied by Park.

Peterhead started to get into the game after a bit of a wake up call and a free kick fed in Kian Mccreddie however the shot was thwarted by Murray Burns, the wind wasn't spoiling conditions or football however did lead into both teams playing good football with the long ball on occasion.

Jags took the lead on 10 minutes, a long ball was met by Ross Cow who got clear of an Albion defender before smashing the ball into the net beyond Burns to guide Peterhead in front, the hosts were starting to show their attacking style of play and took advantage to take the lead.

Albion pulled level four minutes and it was thanks to the quality Logan Watt, a good ball by Oliver Minshull found the former Aberdeen forward and Watt kept his composure by slotting the ball past Park to level things up.

Peterhead had the better chances as the half time break loomed, a Luke Spence ball found Ben Schrader after it stranded the Albion defence, Schrader had a good effort at the Albion goal however Burns was equal to the effort. A Kyle Inglis corner kick wasn't dealt with properly and Mccreddie struck the ball wide.

Four minutes after the restart, Peterhead re-took the lead when Alex Sutherland got into a really good position forcing Murray Burns out of his goal before Sutherland did the rest by rounding the goalkeeper and placing the ball in the net past two stranded Banks O'Dee defenders.

Peterhead were playing some good football and almost doubled their advantage, Joshua Haggath found Luke Spence however a good effort from the winger went wide, Albion weathered the storm in what was the Jags best football during the game.

Banks O'Dee Albion levelled on 64 minutes, Logan Watt got himself into a really good position out on the wide left before a fantastic delivery found Jordan Lynch who got the simplest of touches to knock the home into the net to guide the Aberdeen side.

There was still a twist in the tale with Albion trying to complete a comeback when Cameron Jappy found Josh Byres however the effort went wide.

Peterhead then thought they scored the winner with three minutes to go after Kian Mccreddie had the ball in the net from a terrific assist however the referee thought it was offside, much to the frustration of the home support but a let-off for Albion.

As stated above, draw a fair result but both sides certainly had enough chances to think they could have earned all three, there was plenty of quality on show from both teams and it's understandable to tell why both are in the title race alongside CBC Hilton.

It's the first draw of the season for both teams with Peterhead having a 100% record before this game, Albion had a bad defeat at the start against Stonehaven however look to have a bit more stability about them now and have strengthened well.

The sides still have to play each other at Spain Park and also have title rivals CBC Hilton to play.

Kian Mccreddie - Kian worked hard and got a goal denied by offside, very unlucky from scoring on a couple of occasions, was part of everything positive that Peterhead did.
Logan Watt - Scored a goal and created an assist, should have scored more however was at the heartbeat of everything Albion did.
