After Harrison Reeves had given the home side the lead after 15 minutes Yate scored a second half equalising goal through Joe O’Loughlin on 57 minutes then went ahead with a wonderful goal from Sam Pashen with only 6 minutes remaining only for Bishops Cleeve to hit back immediately through Ross Langworthy to share the points.
