Cayton Corinthians under-14s produced a spirited second-half comeback to beat a re-shuffled Scalby team by the odd goal in seven.

Scalby opened the scoring when a long ball over the top caught out the home defence, Matty Bourne raced clear poking the ball past keeper Nat Drayton and despite Brandon Coyle’s best attempts couldn’t quite stop the ball going over the line.

The home side were determined to get themselves back in the game but with the wind causing problems and Scalby’s man of the match centre-back Ben Dolan proving difficult to get past they had to be patient.

Josh Lever eventually levelling with a shot from outside the area but minutes before half time Scalby restored their lead with Bournes second - guiding the ball home from close range making it 2-1 at the break.

When Jack White’s excellent run and angled shot ricocheted back off the bar it looked like it was going to take something special for Cayton to get back in the game.

This certainly was the case when a ball from out wide was crossed into the box, it was falling just behind Aidan Grassham who managed to control and flick the ball over his head with his first touch then volley home with his second for the goal of the game.

This seemed to spur them on and they soon found themselves in front for the first time in the match when the Scalby keeper produced a good save from a long range effort but couldnt do much about Ryan Jennings following up the rebound.

Scalby fought their way back into the game and got their rewards from a corner, Brandon Diston firing home the loose ball in the box.

It looked as though the game was about to end all square but deep into injury-time Jennings’ long pass through the defence found Jakob Davies quickest to react and just nudge the ball past the onrushing keeper and into the back of the net to hand Cayton all three points.

Scholes Park Raiders under-10s were pegged back to a 1-1 draw at home to Burlington Jackdaws by a last-gasp strike.

The home side dominated the match, but only took the lead in the second half when Marshall Nock cut in and shot past the Jackdaws keeper.

With only 20 seconds remaining, Jackdaws launched a pass upfield and forced the ball home from close range to snatch a point.

Nock, Chris Fenton, Ross Pllu, Matty Balfour and Donnie Lee all impressed for title-chasing Raiders.
