Opener Young hit an unbeaten 123 as the visitors posted 246 all-out in their first innings, with Will Sneath and Colin Griggs both taking three wickets for Bedfordshire.
Andy Reynoldson hit 84 not out as the home side reached 247 all-out in reply, a lead of just one run.
Nicholas Phillips and Joe Coyne were the stand out bowlers for Northumberland taking 4-78 & 4-71 respectively.

The match ended as a draw with the visitors 186 for 1 after 37.2 overs.
Cambridgeshire and Cumberland only played one day out of three because of the rain as their match also inevitably ended as a draw.
Chris Thompson hit an unbeaten 117 for Cambridgeshire as the hosts posted 303 for 8 batting first.
Jonathon Miles scored an unbeaten 58 in reply for Cumberland as the visitors reached 127 for 5 at the end of day 2, with no further play ending the game as a draw.
The match between Hertfordshire and Suffolk also ended as a draw despite both side’s best efforts to create a match result from the game.
Captain Andy Lewis hit an unbeaten 124 off just 79 balls as Hertfordshire reached 300 for 7 declared.
With rain heavily affecting proceedings, Suffolk forfeited their first innings, and the hosts duly obliged in their second innings to leave the target of 301 from a minimum of 71 overs.
Rhys Wynne took figures of 4-50 as Hertfordshire came close salvaging an unlikely victory.
No.9 Chris Swallow hit an unbeaten 59 to save Suffolk’s blushes and end the tie on 185 for 8 when bad light stopped play.
Only 28.5 overs were played between Lincolnshire and Norfolk as the rain washed out yet another Eastern Division match.
