Junior Round-Up: Sunday 12 March
Match reports from the Boro junior games over the weekend...
Pelican United 3-3 Scarborough Athletic Under-12s
Athletic started the game well playing some good football through the thirds and creating plenty of chances but just falling short of converting them. It wasn't long before Scarborough took the lead with some good play from Jack Blakemore created a chance for Frazer Ives to fire at goal. The Pelican keeper parried the shot and Bevan Henry was on hand to finish into top corner.
Athletic were well on top bossing the game and soon Bevan Henry added another goal to his tally after Ashton Peterson had a strike at goal, a Pelican defender cleared but Henry was on hand again to half volley into bottom corner to make it 0-2.
In the second half Pelican picked up the pace and scored 2 goals in quick succession to level the scores.
With 8 minutes remaining Athletic took the lead again this time a screamer from Cameron MacDonald from 20 yards out into the top corner giving the Pelican keeper no chance. The points looked like they were in the bag for Athletic but the home side had other ideas, heading in a cross to equalise with only a couple minutes left to play.
Another good display from the Under-12s bossing the majority of the game and very unlucky not to have taken the win back home with them.
Hessle Rangers 0-5 Scarborough Athletic Under-13s
Scarborough Athletic Under-13s travelled to Hessle Rangers in their latest league fixture.
From the off Hessle tried making it difficult for Boro by being very physical but it wasn't long before Oliver Hesketh's brilliant bit of footwork found him some space on the edge of the box to fire Boro ahead.
Moments later Hesketh's cross took a wicked deflection to loop over the keeper to make it 2-0. Boro continued to dominate the game while having to ride some heavy challenges.
Just before half-time Charlie Wright hit a trademark rocket into the top corner from 20 yards to take Boro into the break 3-0 up.
The second half continued as the first half had left off, with Boro knocking the ball around well which frustrated their opponents and they deservedly soon had a fourth with a great in-swinging corner from Liam Love that beat the Hessle keeper at his near post.
Second half sub Issac Grunwell outpaced the Hessle defence with a superb run before being hacked down by a defender in the box. Wright stepped up and calmly placed it into the bottom corner.
Boro composedly and professionally saw the game out to win 5-0.
Under-14s – no game
Scarborough Athletic Under-15s 3-1 Bridlington Rangers
Scarborough Athletic Under-16s 0-7 North Ferriby United Whites
In a tight first half Boro competed well and nearly broke the deadlock early on as James Skelton cut in from the left and fired a powerful shot across goal that was well saved.
Tom Cammish made a superb stop to keep the scores level and deny the North Ferriby striker in a one-on-one midway through the half.
Athletic battled hard to get to half-time at 0-0 against the increasingly frustrated Whites.
But after half-time, the pace and power of the visitors proved too much as North Ferriby ran the Athletic juniors ragged and scored seven goals after the break for a convincing win.
