Bishop Auckland rescued a late point in a 2-2 draw with Seaham Red Star at Heritage Park.

Seaham had much the better of the opening stages, and had three efforts cleared off the line and another two saved by keeper Nick Liversedge, before Bishops were awarded a penalty for a foul on Chris Winn, but Michael Hoganson hit the post.

However, Seaham took a deserved lead when Hoganson turned a cross into his own net, then Richard Coulson made it 2-0 with a piledriver.

Andy Johnson pulled a goal back with a header on 77 minutes, then Baily Prudhoe grabbed the equaliser with a minute left.

Northallerton were beaten 1-0 at home by Newton Aycliffe, who took the lead just after half time when Matt Lowrie scored from a Sam Read pass.

In the second division, Willington beat Jarrow 3-1 for their second win of the season. Willington took the lead after just 5 minutes through Vinny Gash, but after Jarrow were reduced to ten men, they levelled through Donnelly. Willington regained the lead almost straight away through Bradley Burns on the hour. Liam Lawlor made sure with nine minutes left.

Crook won their second game of the season, Chris Dickinson scoring after 5 minutes.

Esh were beaten 1-0 at home by Birtley, for whom Steve Aiston scored the only goal of the game.
