PICKERING Town Under-11s completed the only unbeaten record throughout the York & Ryedale Mitchell U11s League as they capped their division four-winning season with a 5-2 victory at York Cubs.

The Pikes started tentatively before George Hodgson put them ahead after a quick throw-in put him through, but Cubs quickly levelled.

The second half started the same way, with Nathan Williams giving Pickering the lead only for Cubs to level. The game could have gone either way until Williams scored with a fine curling effort which knocked the stuffing out of the hosts.

Williams completed his sixth hat-trick of the season from a pin-point through ball by man-of-the-match Matty Cooper and scored again after good work from Archie Hoggarth.

Fine defending from Alex Vasey ensured there were no more scares.

There was also title joy for Brooklyn U11s Lions as a 4-2 victory at Heworth in their penultimate game sealed the division two crown.

They were under par due to illness and injury but battled to the end against determined hosts.

An early Ethan Oakes strike and an own goal from a Matthew Lock corner put the Lions two up but Heworth deservedly hit back.

In the second half, Lucas Croft finished a good move with a great goal but again the hosts hit back and, lifted by fantastic goalkeeping, they could have equalised.

In the final 30 seconds, though, Lock scored to clinch the points - and the title.

Old Malton St Mary’s U11s drew 6-6 with Woodthorpe in their final league game of term.

Malton’s first two goals were carbon copies - Josh Mann putting Nathan Dolphin through to finish - while the third was a 20-yard free-kick by Mann. Dolphin completed a hat-trick and Mann got his second for a 5-2 half-time lead. The second half was different as Woodthorpe, with the wind in their favour, got on top and, despite fine saves from Malton’s Seb Swallow and tireless efforts at the back by man-of-the-match Joe Judge, they drew level.

As Malton pushed for a late winner, Woodthorpe caught them on the break to go 6-5 up, but, as Malt surged forward again, Alex Horton equalised amid a goalmouth scramble.

A late penalty saw Heslerton U11s edged out 2-1 by Whitby Fisherman in a thrilling Scarborough Minor League contest.

David Hebron and Tom Sellars-Horsley went close for Heslerton before Sam Owen struck a post from distance. Whitby took a slender half-time lead when a shot squeezed from the keeper’s grasp, but Hessy equalised through man-of-the-match Hebron from a tight angle. With Ihsan Eroglu and Tom Owen starring in defence, the game looked to be heading for a draw, but then both sides had good penalty claims and Whitby’s was awarded - and slotted home.

Old Malton U13s lost 2-1 at Heworth in the York Minor League after conceding two early goals and needing keeper Zak Thompson to stay alert to keep the deficit down.

Malt took charge of the second half with Josh Lees’ accurate passing resulting in Will Scholefield crossing for Joe Barker to score. Malt fought for an equaliser but a fine shot from Barker hit the bar.

Brooklyn U12s Girls coped well with blustery conditions to win 3-0 at Poppleton with goals by Florence Pegrum (2) and Millie Crick, and a player-of-the-match performance by Jess Scholefield.

Heslerton U10s went goal crazy at Filey, with Hayden Williamson, Ricki Lee Green (3) and Charlie Richardson (4) on the mark. Much-improved Sean Leech was man of the match for his defending.

Heslerton U9s were the stronger side but had to settle for a draw with Burlington. Luke Tindall, set up by Jalen Welburn, saw a snap-shot superbly saved.

Matthew Moss scored a fine hat-trick in Heslerton U8s’ victory at Filey. Charlie Swiers, Jake Allardice and, with a long-range effort, Rio Howden also scored, with Harry Richardson the man of the match. The second game was tighter with goals from Swiers (2) separating the sides. Howden was man of the match.

Heslerton U7s played two outstanding games against Seamer with both sides creating chances. Warren Stanton, Oliver Dade and Kai Wilson linked up well for Hessy in the first, with keeper Sammy Taylor Barber man of the match. Malachey Kendrew scored in game two, with Josh Cass and Oscar Webb defending well.

A POOR display cost title-chasing Brooklyn Under-16s as they lost 2-1 to Poppleton in the York Minor League – and saw star striker Harvey Townley sent off.

Brooklyn had many chances to win but their only goal was turned in by the away side. Their man of the match was Lewis Grainge. Townley got two yellow cards.

Brooklyn U15s drew 2-2 with Heworth in a scrappy game.

Brooklyn broke the deadlock after left-back James Allan intercepted the ball on half-way. Oliver Farrow flicked Allan’s pass onto Luke Balderson, who dribbled past one defender and scored with a low shot.

Heworth quickly equalised, though.

After the break, striker Tom Walsh, on the bench after a knock last week, was introduced and made a difference. He sprinted past a couple of players before passing to Luke Scott, who let the ball roll in front of him and fired home.

However, Walsh aggravated his injury and exited, and again the lead didn’t last long, as a cross hit unsighted defender Jake Robinson and rolled in.

Kirkbymoorside U18 Ladies scored through Freya Morton and Hannha Green but lost 3-2 at Poppleton. Similarly, Ben Magson, Fraser Northcote and Jack Simpson netted for Kirkbymoorside U16s but they fell 4-3 at Pocklington.

Kirkbymoorside U15s, though, won a seven-goal thriller at Elm Park thanks to a hat-trick by Lucas Davison and a strike by Harvey D’Alquin. Dan Ward was another hat-trick man, helping Kirkbymoorside U14s to a 5-0 win over Tadcaster, Ben Teasdale and Jack Edwards also netting.

Heslerton U15 Girls gave a brave display in a 5-0 loss to Fulford. Hessy had only eight players and Sophie Render went off injured. Shannon Swift was girl of the game.

Lucie Nichols was on target in Kirkbymoorside U14 Girls’ draw at Fulford.
