Bridlington Rangers Tigers Under-14s claimed a 3-0 win at Beverley Town Scorpions to boost their Hull Youth League promotion challenge.
Tigers went in to this game knowing that eight points from their last six games would guarantee them promotion.
From the off Tigers were on the front foot and took the lead as early as the second minute.
The Beverley keeper picking up a back-pass, George Jewitt-Knott teed up Jack O’Shea who side-footed the ball into the top corner.
Tigers tried to get into their passing game, but couldn’t find the spark they needed to get the second goal.
Tyler Nasser struck the foot of the post after being played in by the impressive Conor Benson.
O’Shea then fired wide when well placed, but he then did find the target from a similar position to put Tigers 2-0 up against the run of play.
The second half was a very similar story as Beverley grew more and more into the game.
A free-kick from 30 yards beat Conor Artley in the Tigers goal, but the referee ruled it out for the Beverley forward being in an offside position while interfering with the line of sight of the keeper.
Charlie McCloud fired narrowly wide after good work by Will Ross to win the ball back. Tigers then broke down the left, Louis Harper fed Dillan Khan and his ball into the box was handled by the defender and the referee had no hesitation in pointing to the spot.
Alfie Hutchinson stepped up and coolly slotted the ball past the helpless home goalkeeper to put Tigers firmly in control in the game.
Beverley were dangerous on the break but time and time again Corey Jackson snuffed out any threat.
Freddie Webster then had to be quick off his line to deny the Beverley forward at the death to protect his and the Tigers’ clean-sheet.
The Tigers man of the match was Jackson, who never put a foot wrong at the heart of the defence.
Bridlington Rangers Dynamos Under-14s secured a well-deserved three points in an entertaining encounter against a spirited Hornsea side, the home side claiming a 7-3 success.
The game was open from the start, with Oscar Shippey, Alex Johnson and Jake Scott all having early opportunities.
Oliver Carr’s great defensive cover then denied the away team when clean through on goal.
Liam Wilson then tried his luck from distance.
For a game that ended with 10 goals incredibly the deadlock wasn’t broken until the 24th minute when Johnson capitalised on defensive confusion to coolly round the keeper and slot home.
Johnson was at it again when he scored his second and doubled Dynamos’ lead on 33 minutes, converting from a nice Alfie Ratcliffe cross.
Jenson Yeates made it 3-0 a minute later and just before half-time.
In the second half the visitors hit back with a great lob over Dylan Jones as he came off his line.
However any chance of a comeback were quickly quashed as Shippey scored directly from a corner and Yates hit his second both in a matter of minutes to make it 5-1.
Wilson hit a sweet shot to increase the home side’s advantage.
Hornsea replied soon after before Yates, who had a solid game secured his hat-trick to make it 7-2 .
A late consolation deep into injury made the final score 7-3.
