1st XV

W 24-5




By Charlie Hopper

Scarborough RUFC picked up their first league win of the season and the first back-to-back victories since February.

It was the home side who raced into an early lead after Euan Govier picked up his side’s first try of the afternoon. The lead was extended to 12-0 thanks to skipper Drew Govier with Connor Ward stepping up to kick the conversion. The home side made sure that they extended the lead even further before the break as Ward finished off a breakaway move to score under the posts. He made light work of the conversion to give his side a 19-0 lead at half-time.

Goole came fighting back after the break but struggled to find a way through a resolute Scarborough defence, who were being shouted on by a bumper, Ladies Day crowd. The visitors scored their only try of the match, late on, but it was Scarborough who would have the final say. They secured the bonus point after Jonty Holloway scored an unconverted try in the corner to round off a comprehensive, 24-5 win.

Scarborough are back on the road this weekend, with a difficult trip to Rochdale as they look to extend their recent upturn in form.
