A Louise Bean corner whipped in put the keeper under pressure and her attempt to clear resulted in a goal.

Further goals came at regular intervals as the Scarborough girls played some superb attacking football.

Sophie McArthur and Amy Marrass (2) took their chances well and Evie Mansell, with a deft lob over the keeper just before half-time, was a deserved reward for her efforts.

The second half saw much of the same with Bean capitalising on a defensive mistake to put the home side 6-0 up.

Tiredness from their exertions and a little complacency led to the visitors getting back into the game, scoring two late consolation goals, but this didn’t take away from an excellent team performance.

Scarborough Ladies Under-13s battled well with a player less during their 10-2 loss on the road at Brayton Belles.

The visitors, with only eight for the nine-a-side game, were without several key players. They lost another to injury early on but Brayton lent them an eighth player and they got stuck in and only trailed 3-1 at the break, Ellie-Mae Bloomfield on target for Scarborough.

The away side tired in the second half, Brayton scoring another seven goals but striker Bloomfield did net another fine goal for Scarborough, whose displays are improving with each game according to boss Andy Hutchings.

The Under-13s are in action at home to Wigginton Grasshoppers this Saturday.

Winger Beth Barnes made it three in three games for her to put the hosts in front, before a deflected shot looped over keeper Phoebe Cheshire to level things up again.

However, the home side refused to outdone, and their battling spirit was rewarded when Anna Bowman fired home from the edge of the box.
