Report: Huddersfield Town U18s 2-2 Bristol City U18s

City Under-18s began their season with a thrilling 2-2 draw at Huddersfield Town.

Trevor Challis' young side twice fought back from one-goal deficits in a frantic second half, thanks to an own goal and a strike from trialist Harry Brock. 

City Under-18 coach Challis said: "They had the better of the first half and we were the stronger team after half-time. A draw was probably a fair result, although we enough opportunities to win it." 

Both sides played their part in topsy-turvy first half, but it wasn't until after half-time that the floodgates opened. 

Just three minutes of the second period had passed when Luca Colville fired the opening goal for the visitors. 

City were undeterred though and levelled on 68 minutes when Opi Edwards' dangerous cross was put through his own net by a Town defender. 

Town went back in front soon after as striker Cedwyn Scott found the back of the net. 

But Challis' side kept fighting and managed to salvage a point five minutes from the end. Brock, a Filton College scholar on trial with the Under-18s, found himself in the right place at the right time to secure a point. 

City Under-18s: Alaji, Turner-Williams, Turner, Ali, Nurse, Reeves, Llewellyn, Smith (Rees), Edwards, Mortimore (Brock), Akpobire (Allen).
