Everton Academy 2-3 Royals AcademyEverton U18s 2 (Duffus 20, Connolly 24)
Reading U18s 3 (Stacey 55 & 65, Dickie 85)
Reading's under-18s came from two goals down to beat high-flying Everton 3-2 and record their fifth consecutive Barclays U18 Premier League victory on Saturday afternoon
Jack Stacey scored twice after the break before Rob Dickie bundled home an 85th minute winner, ending the Toffees' six-game winning sequence.
The hosts started strongly and took the lead after 20 minutes when Tyrone Duffus found the net from George Green's cross.
The advantage was doubled moments later when Everton full-back Callum Connolly struck past Royals goalkeeper Stuart Moore with a low drive.
But Reading were much improved after the break and capitalised on a slow start from the Toffees.
