Hepples hit the target twice in the first half as the Lloyd Dowson Scarborough Saturday League Reserve League leaders edged 2-1 ahead at the interval.

The midfielder, who was also man of the match, completed his hat-trick to double Edgehill's lead, then Robbie Scarborough added a fourth to seal the win.

The fifth goal was the pick of the bunch, with 16-year-old Joshua Fergus smashing a 25-yarder into the top corner of the net, Lloyd Henderson wrapping up the scoring.

Snainton had to battle back from 3-1 down against a determined Falsgrave at a chilly Eastway to claim top spot in Division Two.

The visitors took the lead early on, but the hosts levelled through a great one-on-one finish from Mark Taylor.

The same player put Falsgrave in front before the interval and completed his hat-trick after the break as the hosts looked to be closing in on a three-point haul.

But Snainton had other ideas and they swiftly pulled a goal back and then equalised.

The villagers went in front late on and in the closing moments Falsgrave pushed their keeper up for a corner and when Snainton won the ball they broke clear to wrap up win with a fifth goal.

Sweeper Joe Turner was named as the man of the match for the hosts, with fellow defender Jordan Dyson also having a great game.

West Pier Reserves suffered a 3-0 home loss against Lealholm in the Scarborough & District FA Junior Cup.

Defender Jack Brown was named as man of the match for a below-par Pier side.
