Newcastle United under-16s entertained FC Barcelona from California who are visiting the North East as part of their 2007 tour.
Newcastle took the lead after ten minutes when Steph Eadon ran onto a great pass to calmly lift the ball over the advancing keeper. The black and whites doubled their lead within minutes as Sarah Eadon got on the scoresheet with a clinical finish from 12 yards out.
FC Barcelona hit back with two quick goals through Jamia Fields to make the game all square after 30 minutes. Barcelona were now dominating the game and went in front when Fields got her third of the game with a great finish after a powerful run. Sarah Eadon got her second of the game on the stroke of half time to send the teams in level.
Newcastle started the second half brightly and were denied a fourth goal when keeper Alyssa Wilson pulled of a fantastic save at the feet of Sarah Eadon.
With five minutes of the game remaining Newcastle went in front after Steph Eadon capitalised on a goalkeeping error to turn the ball into the empty net. However Barcelona grabbed a deserved equaliser with the last kick of the game, Annisa Camacho was left unmarked at the back post to score from three yards out to make the final score 4-4.
Coach Lisa Bell said: "The game was played in a great spirit and even the torrential rain could not dampen the girls' enthusiasm. A draw was a fair result as neither team deserved to lose."
FC Barcelona will continue their tour with games in Manchester and Scotland as well as visits to Old Trafford and St James Park, finishing off with a festival this weekend at the Newcastle Football Centre.
