The Youth Team suffered defeat in an entertaining opener to their campaign on Saturday.
They fell behind shortly before the break, but turned it around inside the opening 15 minutes of the second period.
Morgan Moreland equalised with a fine first-time curling effort, before he then crossed for Musambya Kisimba to convert from close range and put Dale ahead.
Preston then scored three quick goals to get back in front again, and despite Moreland’s second of the game, converting after a fine team move, the hosts scored in added time to seal victory.
