Northampton Town's male Football & Education programme side took on their Stoke City counterparts at Moulton on Wednesday afternoon.
The visitors made the early running and hit the post after five minutes, but the Cobblers responded well and took the lead on seven minutes after a fabulous turn and shot from Eddie Panter.
On the quarter of an hour mark, Josh Whaler had a shot from the edge of the area tipped over by the goalkeeper. The resulting corner was headed over by Jake Webster.
City levelled two minutes later with a low shot in to the bottom corner and then proceeded to have the better of things up to half time, with Cobblers keeper Ben Smith making a number of important saves.
Smith made another crucial save in the opening exchanges of the second half before, at the other end, Jake Webster had a shot parried away by the Stoke keeper.
Eddie Panter was so close to a second goal on 56 minutes, having an initial effort blocked behind for a corner, then hitting the inside of the post with a shot from the resulting delivery.
The Cobblers were back ahead with seventeen minutes to play, Eddie Panter was fouled and Will Glennon his a free kick from 30 yards into the bottom corner for an excellent goal.
That goal was worthy of winning any game and it proved the difference in this match.
