 SCARBOROUGH’S TRY SCORERS AGAINST BRIDLINGTON: AARON WILSON (LEFT)) AND ISAAC FAAMAU (RIGHT)

SCARBOROUGH 15 BRIDLINGTON 17

By DAVE CAMPBELL

Scarborough turned in their best performance of the season by some way and led 15-12 on 80 minutes in a superb local-derby with Bridlington at Silver Royd. However they conceded an injury-time try which saw the men from Dukes Park burgle a narrow win following a rousing game.

Bridlington took an early first half lead when lock Paddy Waines scored a converted try from close range in the 8th minute. In front of a large and vocal home support Scarborough came straight back and were rewarded by a try from No8 Isaac Faamau converted by fly-half Tom Harrison to level at 7-7.

Faamau was in the thick of things when a break from deep in home territory saw the big No8 release lock Aaron Wilson who scored in the corner to see the Seasiders lead 12-7 at the break.

A penalty from centre Graham Hogg stretched the Scarborough lead to 15-7 on the hour but the visitors struck back with a try from fly-half Matui Welsh three minutes later to cut the lead to 15-12.

A punishing fourth quarter battle for both sides saw Hogg miss with another couple of long range penalties which could have stretched the Scarborough lead before that late try from centre Jamie Martin broke Scarborough hearts.

ONLY A BRIDLINGTON SQUAD WITHOUT NUMBERS WAS SHOWN IN THE MATCH PROGRAMME SO IF I HAVE NAMED THE WRONG SCORERS PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
