Scalby Under-14s ran out winners in a surprisingly competitive encounter against a much younger Heslerton Hawks side.

Connor Avison opened the scoring from the penalty spot for Alec Coulson’s side, before providing the free-kick for Reuben Staveley to tap in for a 2-0 lead.

For Heslerton, Josh Dolan, Josh Robertson and Ihsan Eroglu stood out in a rearguard action, tackling their hearts out in front of stand-out keeper Brad Spiller.

Further goals from Jack Reeves and another for Staveley made the game safe for Scalby, but not before Jayden Isaacs had rattled the post for the Hawks and Sam Owen spectacularly hit the crossbar with a curling effort, having beaten three defenders before cutting in off the wing.

Man of match honours went to stand-in Scalby keeper Eddy Hopper for his clean-sheet, while Josh Dolan was the Hawks’ star man.

Scalby Under-16s edged to a hard-fought 1-0 win against Goldsborough.

Kieran Regan’s opportunistic strike proved the difference in a tight match.

Both teams had chances in a goalless first half, with the away side unlucky not to take the lead as they hit the bar from close range.

Scalby took the lead 10 minutes into the second half, as Eric Hall worked some space and hit a hard shot the keeper could only parry into the path of Regan, who made no mistake from close range.

Goldsbrough piled on the pressure, however Max Tadman kept them out with a commanding performance between the sticks.

Tadman made a number of good saves and was fortunate again as Goldsbrough hit the bar from 35 yards.
