Scarborough Athletic under-12s emphatic 10-0 Hull Boys Sunday League win over Springhead was really a tale of two halves.
A resilient Springhead kept Scarborough at bay in the first half by only conceding two goals which were both taken well by Jaydan Hindle, who finished the match with five goals.
Scarborough scored within a minute of the start of the second half and further goals from Hindle, Dan Simpson, Kane Randerson, Jay Elsdon and Lewis McGrath sealed the victory in some style for Athletic.
It was also a clean sheet for the second week running for Boro.
The under-12s currently sit fourth in their league with games in hand on the sides above them.
Pickering Town and Fishburn Park under-12s served up a top-of-the-table Scarborough Minor League thriller, with the Pikes winning 2-1.
In a lively first half, Harry Coldbeck had Pickering’s best chance with a one-on-one which the keeper got down well to save, Jack Balderson also had a good effort well blocked by the Park defence.
Tom Wright gave Pickering the lead straight after the break with a thunderbolt into the top corner.
Park then had their best spell of the match with Pikes keeper Matthew Ridley making at superb double save to keep the score at 1-0, however Fishburn equalised from a corner.
The game was now end to end, and in the final minute Jordan Anderson found space inside the box and fired past the keeper to clinch the points for Pickering.
Owen Ellis and Luke Shepherd impressed at the back for Town.
Hunmanby under-10s earned a fine 4-0 win at Phoenix.
Both teams started brightly, but Hunmanby soon took the lead.
Kobi Mainprize played in Jake Jordon, who managed to keep control of the ball and wriggle free from the attention of his opponent to unleash a shot to put Hunmanby in front.
After the break Hunmanby’s confidence grew and they soon scored a second.
The home keeper played the ball out to his right-back, Bryn Barnett pressed and won the ball and with just the keeper to beat he drilled his shot across him into the bottom corner of the Phoenix net.
A third goal came from a great crossfield pass from Jordon to find Dylan Barnett out on the right flank, his diagonal run and shot brought a good save from the keeper but he could only parry it into the path of Bryn Barnett who gleefully accepted the gift.
Hunmanby wrapped up the game with a fourth when again the persistance of Dylan Barnett got his reward.
From a throw-in he picked the ball up in Phoenix’s half and ran at the home defence, he scored at the second attempt after the keeper failed to hold onto his first shot.
Heslerton under-11s earned a 3-1 home success against rivals Hunmanby.
An Ethan Smith brace and a Roman Butterfield shot from a tight angle saw Heslerton hit back from 1-0 down to earn victory.
