EXETER City's under-18s team battled from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw with the Manchester City counterparts at St James's Park on Tuesday night.
Manchester City took a first half lead when Connor Riley-Lowe deflected a corner into his own net. Dom McHale doubled the Premier League academy side's advantage with a neat finish from a tight angle early in the second half.
But two goals within a minute from Charlie Madden and Joe Charles put the Grecians back on par just minutes from the end.
A City development side also won 6-2 at Camelford on Monday night in a friendly match against the Peninsula League side.
