HOCKEY: Evans and Brown at the double in win
Scarborough Ladies maintained their Yorkshire League promotion bid with a 5-0 win against Ben Rhydding 5ths.
The ladies are on track for a round-robin league with the winners from different regions in their division gaining promotion.
Scarborough, despite being short-staffed and losing a player through an early injury in the match, ran out comfortable winners.
In a physical match with tempers in the opposition team becoming slightly heated, Scarborough kept their cool and worked steadily on improving the bottom line.
Goals came from Helen Evans Kelly Brown with two each and a reward for a great effort by Alexandra Seymour.
Training for the ladies continues at Scarborough College, Wednesdays 7.30pm. Newcomers are welcome.
Scarborough Mens 2nds took full advantage of playing at home as they came away with maximum points Saturday’s fixture against Driffield 3rds with their best performance of the season in a 7-0 win.

All three teams are in action this weekend with away ties and are looking to continue the winning sequence.
