FOUR wins from five games last weekend gave Scarborough Ladies junior sides a successful Saturday morning.

The under-10s led the way, coming back from 1-0 down at Stamford Bridge to win 2-1.

Goals from Jolie Matthews on her debut and Ella Davis saw the side go top of the table.

The under-13s had to travel to Knaresborough to face Scotton without manager Colin Hepples and defender Lexi Hepples after illness in their household.

They went 3-0 down but managed to pull the score back to 3-2 with goals from Darcey Boyes and Cherie Playforth.

But they couldn’t find a third so went down to their first defeat.

The under-14s got their first points of the season, winning 5-1 at home against Stamford Bridge.

Aimie Ireland with a hat-trick and a Molly Sinclair brace secured the win.

Without influential defender Caitlin Foster and coach Warren Foster due to family commitments, the under-15s travelled to Kirkbymoorside looking to improve on their draw the previous week.

A strong defensive display from Ruvimbo Mhaka, Lizzie Sartain, Lizzy Alport and girl-of-the-game Jade England restricted the home side to one late goal in a 2-1 win.

Emily Dowson had done the damage before half-time with two quick goals from the central edge of the box.

With other results going their way, the under-15s sit top of the table, as the only team who have played twice to remain unbeaten.

The under-16s rounded off a great Saturday morning for the club with a 6-2 home win against Stamford Bridge in their first game of the season.

Despite having a player less the girls controlled most of the game, with their goals coming from a hat-trick by Hannah Green, two from Lucy Brown and one from Hayley Scholes.

On Sunday the Open-Age side played their second match of the season, losing 5-3 at home against Middlesbrough Lionesses.

Alice Turner scored twice, with Dani Kendrick scoring her first Open-Age goal with a volley.
