DEESIDE Ramblers claimed a 3-2 home win over Tynemouth in a close encounter.
Phil Johnson made the greatest inroads on the Tynemouth goal but Deeside were the first to concede.
The equaliser came from Johnson following excellent work from Dell Millard-Smith.
In the second half, Tynemouth took the lead when a penalty corner was accidentally deflected in.
But the second leveller and the winning goal both came from the stick of David Cheshire - twice from penalty corners.
