Saints march on with Hedon win
EAST Hull Saints under-11s dominated their first meeting against Hedon Rangers with a 9-2 victory.
Craige Winstanley quickly opened the scoring after great link-up play from Harrison Rhodes, Callum Dolan and Charlie O'Connor.
Winstanley went on to complete his hat-trick and impressive Luke Bullement added a hat-trick of his own.
Hedon, to their credit, scored twice but too many times their strikers were stopped in attack by the excellent Nathan Ketley, who once again controlled the defence.

Elliott Sargeson, Dolan and O'Connor all added goals of their own and Saints proved their strength in depth with a tremendous display of passing football.
SPROATLEY Juniors AFC continued their unbeaten Kingston League season with a 13-0 win in a ruthless performance against a very spirited Rockford Rangers.
Sproatley pressed from kick-off and their quick movement created several early chances.
They were 3-0 up after five minutes, with goals from Jack Berry-Wilkin, Jay Scott and Curtis Douglas-Taylor.
Rockford defended really well as a team, but Sproatley's football enabled them to create a lot of chances from wide areas, with the excellent movement of forwards Lewis Hodgson and Berry-Wilkin opening up space for Louie Broughton and Thomas Herbison to drive from midfield.
Further first-half goals came from Herbison, Jacob Benn, Liam Havercroft and Douglas Taylor.
The second half was a similar story with Rockford competing strongly and Juniors becoming involved in a midfield battle.
It was Hodgson who put together an array of spectacular efforts scoring four second-half goals and striking the woodwork three times.
Further great finishes from Douglas-Taylor and Liam Havercroft added to the scoreline. The defensive pair of Brad Tymon and Alex Vickerton, supported by keeper Reece Levelle, played another tremendous game keeping the team's 15th clean-sheet of the season.
WESTELLA and Willerby Juniors under-14s ran out comfortable 6-0 winners at Hessle Rangers.
Any hopes of Rangers getting off to a solid start were dashed after only five minutes when Josh Corlett's corner was finished from Aaron Brettel's first-time shot.
Despite plenty of possession it wasn't until the 20th minute that Juniors came close when Harry Gamble's 25-yard drive was well saved by the Rangers keeper.
Two minutes later, George Barmby set up Lewis Garsides who did well to dig the ball out from under his feet to fire home past the diving keeper.
On 30 minutes, James Lee's corner picked out Tommy Attwood unmarked in the box and his header looked to be well saved but the referee judged the ball had crossed the line.
Moments later, it was 4-0 when Barmby expertly lobbed the keeper as the first half came to an end.
Juniors continued to press with Ben Harmeston crossing in for Charlie Dunkerley to see his header saved.
Six minutes into the half, Dunkerley's corner picked out Lee to fire a powerful header past the outstretched keeper.
Josh Elliot saw his long-range effort go narrowly over before Lee was unlucky to see his drive rebound off the bar.
Twenty minutes into the half, Josh Hairsine picked out Dunkerley in space and his early shot across the keeper made it 6-0.
With full-time approaching, Hessle almost hit Juniors on the break but for a tremendous tackle from Corlett chasing back to deny Rangers their opportunity.
Dan Woodley then pulled off a superb catch at full stretch from a dangerous-looking Rangers corner.
