Junior Round-Up: Sunday 26 February

Hedon Rangers 3-2 Scarborough Athletic Under-12s
Scarborough Athletic Under-12's played away at Hedon Rangers on Sunday.
Scarborough started the game at full throttle despite only having 8 players.
Chances created in the first few minutes from Scarborough were either well saved or agonisingly wide of the target.
But the wait for a goal wasn't long as some good football played out from the back through the midfield before winger Alfie Kendell laid the ball off on the edge of the area for Jack Blakemore to lash home into the top corner to make it 1-0.
Soon afterwards forward Frazer Ives ran onto a through ball from Ashton Peterson to calmly slot in and double Boro's lead.
Chances continued in the first half with the Scarborough team fully dominating and playing some excellent football.
The second half started much the same with Scarborough enjoying most of play and chances going begging.
Then it was Hedon's turn with some direct play and running in behind the tiring Scarborough defence they started to create chances but Seb Smith in goal for Athletic pulled of 3 top drawer saves in the space of 5 minutes to keep Boro leading.
As the game went and no subs available for Boro, Hedon took control in the last 15 minutes scoring 3 well worked goals.
Scarborough still had chances to level and even win the game in the last 3 minutes but some good defensive work on the line and a tight offside goal meant Athletic went home without the points, losing 3-2.

Despite the result Scarborough played some of the best football I've seen at junior level and long may the development of this great bunch of lads continue. The best compliment coming from the ref on the day, stating that Scarborough were the best footballing side he had seen all season throughout the age groups something we should all be proud of.


Scarborough Athletic Under-13s v Shiptonthorpe United

Scarborough Athletic Under-13s played hosts to Shiptonthorpe United in their latest league fixture.

After a scrappy opening 15 minutes it was the visitors who took the lead when a free kick was swung in and was powerfully headed home by a Shiptonthorpe forward.
Just before half-time Liam Love drilled the ball across the keepers path to the far post where Caleb Sheader was on had to neatly put it away to make it 1-1 at the break.
Boro started well early in the second half and soon found themselves in the lead when Charlie Wright played a great ball into Love, who hit an unstoppable shot into the far corner.
The hosts soon had a two goal cushion when Oliver Hesketh fought off the challenges of 3 Shiptonthorpe defenders and crossed to Nathan Dolphin who tucked it into the corner of the net.
Shiptonthorpe battled back in the last 15 minutes and pulled a goal back with five minutes to go, but Boro hung on to win the match 3-2.
Hessle Harriers 2-3 Scarborough Athletic Under-15s
Scarborough Athletic visited Hessle Harriers and played out a thrilling encounter after a minutes silence had been observed to recognise the sad passing earlier in the week of Scarborough chairman Dave Holland.
Hessle started brightly but it was Boro who opened the scoring when Finlay Marsh fired in an unstoppable 35 yard free kick for 1-0
Lewis McGrath was next to try his luck with a curled free kick which the keeper did well to tip over the crossbar.
Hessle had the next chance of note when they were awarded a free kick for a back pass inside the Boro box. The resulting free kick though was fired over from close range.
The home team did equalise just before the break with their own spectacular free kick from long range 1-1 and then took the lead 8 minutes into the second half when a well worked move was finished smartly into the bottom corner 2-1.
Going behind seemed galvanise Boro who rolled up their sleeves, Jake Standing having a couple of shots narrowly miss the target in search of the equaliser.
Tom Wright then saw the home keeper tip his free kick onto the the crossbar and out for a corner.
Zam Deans had a great chance to equalise but fired into the side netting.
With seven minutes remaining Kane Randerson Wrays corner was volleyed home by Tom Wright for the equaliser 2-2
Both teams were searching for the winner and Cameron Anderson had to react quickly to gather the ball when Hessle looked sure to score. 
There was to be last minute drama though with 2 minutes of injury time played Zam Deans accurate pass found Tom Wright who executed a deft turn and cool left foot strike won the game for Boro 3-2.


Scarborough Athletic Under-16s 1-4 Westella and Willerby

Tom Brackenbury scored for Boro Under-16s as they went down 4-1 to Westella and Willerby.
After conceding two early penalties, Athletic got back into game with a goal at the beginning of the second half but Westella proved too strong and ran out deserved winners. It could have more but Boro keeper Tom Cammish made some terrific saves to keep the score down.
