Scarborough 31 West Park Leeds 23 

Scarborough extended their unbeaten start to the season beating West Park Leeds 31-23 at Silver Royd this afternoon.The Seasiders raced to an early 10-0 lead thanks to a penalty, try and conversion from fly-half Tom Harrison before winger  Matty Young touched down to stretch the lead to 15-0.

Scarborough went off the boil in the second quarter and West Park reduced the arrears to a couple of points at 15-13. However a brilliant individual effort by young back row Drew Govier converted by Harrison saw the Seasiders grab a 22-13 half-time lead.

A howler by Harrison immediately after the break when he completely missed a cross field kick saw Leeds run in a converted try to close the gap at 22-20. An exchange of penalties saw Scarborough lead 25-23 before two late kicks by Harrison clinched an unconvincing 31-23 win.

The Silver Royd men will have to improve considerably if they are to get anything from their game with high-flying Bridlington at Dukes Park next week.
