Scarborough Ladies FC Under-16s dug deep for a 1-1 draw at City of York League champions Fulford.

In a pulsating match Fulford took a first-half lead after a long-range shot that produced a fantastic one-handed save from Boro keeper Lucy Webster, a Fulford attacker was however first to react and slotted the ball home after a scramble on the line.

Boro then took the game to their opponents in the second half looking for an equaliser, midfielder Lil Scott scoring a deserved goal on 50 minutes bending the bell into the far corner from the edge of the box after great passing play.Both teams had chances to take the win in what was a good advert for girls football but ultimately a draw was the right result.

The home team then started to create more chances but were wasteful in front of goal.

Brooke Southren added a second following good play from Emilie Watson.

RI responded well and pulled a goal back, but strikes from Gracie McLaughlin and Lola Bayes sent Boro in at half time 4-1 to the good.

The second half saw the home team get more on top and again squandered chances, but a flowing move saw Bayes crash a shot against the bar which resulted in Grime adding her second with a stunning reaction finish to complete the scoring.
