Scarborough Ladies Under-15s continued their fine start to the season with a competitive 1-1 draw against a very strong York RI side.

In an end to end encounter, girl of the game Erin Nicholson made a string of fine saves in the Scarborough goal but was powerless to stop the hosts going ahead midway through the half.

Scarborough continued to create the better chances though and their hard work was rewarded when Lydia Hanson flicked on a long throw and Khyarna Foster stole around the back of the defence to slot home the equaliser.

The same player could have then then won the game for Scarborough, but her curling shot was brilliantly saved by the York RI keeper to earn her side a point.

Scarborough Ladies Under-14s played host to title hopefuls Kader last Saturday at Sherburn.

The home side created the best chances of the first half but couldn’t find a way past the visiting keeper, while Amber Colling also made some good saves to keep the score 0-0 at half-time.

The second half continued in the same manner with little between the two sides.

But two defensive lapses from the Scarborough girls – blotting an otherwise excellent performance – were punished dearly to put Kader 2-0 up.

SLFC pressed forward and Anna Bowman hit the post, while the Teessiders’ goalkeeper made more good saves to keep an impressive clean sheet to secure the three points.

Next up for Scarborough is an away trip to Poppleton Tigers on Saturday.
