This was a battle, Scholes Park were not going to give Heslerton an easy win and the Heroes had to work twice as hard to get through this game.
Keane Welburn smacked in a goal in each half for the villagers. Scholes Park hit back with a well deserved goal late on, but Heslerton Heroes weathered a late onslaught to take the victory in a game that could have gone either way.
Harry Brett’s fantastic performance at left-back earned him the player of the game award.
