Scarborough 26 - 19 Cleckheaton

Cleckheaton fall to last minute defeat By Geoff Akerman

Cleckheaton travelled to Scarborough with 4 changes from the previous week's winning team against Bradford and Bingley. Niall Jackson replaced Tim Mobbs, Josh Plunkett and Brad Marsden were unavailable and were replaced by Tom Austin with James Crowther moving to flanker.

Scarborough kicked off and Cleckheaton hadn't got their hands on the ball when hooker Dawson carved his way over the line for the opening try , converted by Ratcliffe and Cleckheaton were 7-0 down after 2 minutes. After a couple of ruck phases , the ball was moved left and Mike Swetman powered over for a try which he converted to level the scores at 7-7. Cleckheaton were awarded a penalty on 10 minutes, 35 metres out but the kick went wide.

Scarborough regained the lead with a move down the left where Ratcliffe crossed for a good try which he converted to make the score 14-7 after 25 minutes. Cleckheaton equalised with a similar move to the left where Full Back James Wilson crossed the line , goaled by Swetman.
In 1st half stoppage time , Scarborough worked space on the left wing and an inside pass gave a try to second row Aaron Wilson, Ratcliffe added the conversion and the half time score was 21-14.

Early in the second half Seddon was replaced by Barnard due to injury and Evans replaced Woodhead on the wing. Cleckheaton applied a lot of pressure in the next 20 minutes. A Ben Dearing counter attack up the left wing was supported by Wilson and Carley who was stopped short of the line , when the ball was recycled, Evans gave a scoring pass to Keiron Downs who crashed over near the corner flag. Swetman hit the upright with the conversion attempt. Trialling 21-19, Cleckheaton applied even more pressure only to lose the ball deep in Scarborough territory. As the ball was cleared down field, James Wilson carried the ball over the touchline and trying to prevent a quick line out threw the ball away and was penalised for his action.

As time was running out , Scarborough went through several phases and eventually livewire hooker Dawson crossed for his second try of the game, the conversion was missed but Scarborough had done enough to get a bonus point win. Cleckheaton picked up a losing bonus point for their effort and face another tough game on the East Coast at Bridlington next week.
