Despite Scarborough starting the brighter, they ended up trailing 1-0 at the break.

Scarborough soon found themselves two goals down, but they put pressure on the Hessle defence and were soon rewarded when Nathan Dolphin scored direct from a corner to make it 2-1.

Shortly after Charlie Wright’s fierce shot was parried into Dolphin’s path for him to slot home his second.

Again against the run of play, Scarborough fell behind after a quick Hessle counter-attack, but with 20 minutes to go a pinpoint corner from Caleb Sheader was headed into the far corner by Dolphin for his hat-trick to help his side claim a point from a 3-3 draw.

Scarborough Athletic Under-15s beat Bridlington Rangers 5-1 in the Hull Boys Sunday Football League.

Athletic took the lead when Tom Wright crossed for George Walmsley to fire in a volley.

Athletic effectively made the game safe with a three-goal burst inside five minutes starting on 28 minutes when Zam Deans chased down what looked like a lost cause and his pinpoint cross eventually fell to Walmsley, who left the keeper with no chance.

The goal of the game followed minutes later when Nathan Vidler brilliantly cushioned a through-ball, turned and fed Simpson on the left, who crossed to the unmarked Walmsley, who smashed a volley in off the post to complete his hat-trick and put Athletic 3-0 up.

Nathan Vidler’s smart finish made it 4-0 shortly after.

Rangers got reward for their endeavour when pulling a goal back just before the interval.

The scoring was completed with 15 minutes left when a quick corner between George Bramham and Nathan Parker ended up at Deans’ feet and his cross to the back-post found Simpson, who smashed a half volley past the keeper.

Parker had Athletic’s last chance but his glancing header was wide of the target, but they had done enough for a 5-1 win and their eighth league success on the bounce.

Scarborough Athletic Under-12s came out 5-0 winners over Pelican United in the Hull Youth Football League.

Scarborough were on top early on and created some good early chances that were saved by the Pelican keeper.

Boro took the lead when Alfie Kendell surged forward before calmly chipping the ball over the Pelican defence for forward Josh Kelly to run on and lob over the keeper.

Soon after the home side scored a second after nice wing play from Ted Broadbent to whip in a cross to Bevan Henry, who with his back to goal turned and scooped the ball into the back of the net.

Just before half-time Boro grabbed a third goal as Cameron MacDonald expertly bicycle-kicked over the defence for Kelly to race onto and calmly slot in his second.

MacDonald hit the fourth before Ashton Peterson smashed in a half-volley to cap an excellent display.
