Boro Under-16s dominated possession but were unable to press home their advantage.

The visitors scored two quickfire goals against the run of play which spurred on the Scarborough girls.

Just before half-time Sophie McArthur showed some individual brilliance on the left wing, cutting inside two defenders and curling an unstoppable shot into the top corner.

The confidence brought on by the goal was short-lived as a Woodkirk midfielder won the ball just inside the Scarborough half, broke forward and slotted home.

Scarborough continued to press forward and continued to dominate and with 10 minutes remaining Amy Marrass broke down the right and smashed a shot into the roof of the net from a tight angle.

The onslaught on the Woodkirk goal continued, but Scarborough couldn’t manage to get the deserved equaliser.

Scarborough Ladies Under-12s hosted Linthorpe Accies Under-12s in the Teesside Junior Football Alliance on Saturday and ran out comfortable 13-1 winners.

The hosts dominated from the onset, creating chances galore, but Linthorpe never let their heads drop, although never troubled the home goal despite their work rate.

Captain Jemima Chapman excelled in midfield, while Emilie Watson caught the eye with her approach play.

Gracie McGloughlin and Alesha Grime led the scoring with five apiece, which were added to with strikes from Rebecca Addison, Brooke Southern and Lauren Monkman.

Scarborough Ladies Under-13s suffered a 5-2 home loss to Brooklyn, but their improvement as a new team continued

The visitors led 2-0 after an evenly-contested first half and scored another three after the break but a superb free-kick from Jess Morgan and a great solo goal from Ellie-Mae Bloomfield saw Scarborough get back into the game late on.

Defender Neve Hutchings put in an outstanding performance to be named girl of the match, with midfielders Morgan and Ruby Carney also impressing.

Scarborough Ladies Under-11s took on Wigginton at home.

The Reds started very strong, going close a few times.

Scarborough kept the pressure going and finally broke the deadlock with a fine ball from Anya Joy and slotted home by Bryony Jones.

After a tough start to the second half the hosts found their rhythm with plenty of shots on goal and Isla Jones scored before captain Harmarni Atkins added another.

Next up for the Under-11s is an away fixture at York RI this weekend.

Scarborough Ladies Under-18s travelled to North East Leeds Lionesses in search of their first points of the season.

The visitors impressed throughout, as the togetherness and cohesion of the new squad continues to improve with every game they play together.

Captain Ellie Pateman scored her first goal of the campaign to cancel out an early opener by the hosts, and the in-form Beth Barnes smashed in a second midway through the second half to give the Boro girls the lead.

However, defensive hesitancy led to a Leeds equaliser on 75 minutes, and a hard earned point was snatched from the visitors with the very last kick of the game, as the hosts stole an undeserved 3-2 win.
