The Under-11s started very strongly against a good Bishopthorpe side.

Rachel Hodgson broke free and let fly with a fantastic effort that sailed into the top corner.

Scarborough kept the pressure on and Chloe McArthur with a neat solo effort put the Reds further ahead.

Into the second half and Bishopthorpe broke through the Scarborough defence to pull one back but with some fantastic midfield play including a great performance from Harmarni Winn-Atkinson the Reds bagged another one.

But Bishopthorpe came back strong and scored five minutes later.

The Reds again started piling on the pressure when McArthur broke free and was taken down in the box resulting in a penalty.

Unfortunately this wasn’t converted and went narrowly wide.

Winn-Atkinson then broke free again and from the right she scored again resulting in the Reds staying unbeaten and becoming league winners.

The Scarborough Ladies Under-14s were crowned joint-champions after a 3-1 win at Shiptonthorpe.

Needing a win to guarantee joint-first place, the opening half was a nervous affair for Scarborough who were on top and creating chances but unable take them.

However 25 minutes in, Boro striker Lucy Fairbank calmed things with an excellent strike from the left giving the home keeper no chance.

The second half started with Scarborough now firmly in control and further goals from Amelia Breckon and Kelsie McGough put Boro into a commanding 3-0 lead.

Shiptonthorpe scored a late breakaway consolation goal but the final whistle came and the Scarborough celebrations began.

Boro keeper Lucy Webster was named as their player of the match for her excellent handling and distribution all game
