North Ribblesdale

By Dave Campbell and Jake Mensah

Scarborough swept aside the challenge of visitors North Ribblesdale, running in nine tries without reply at Silver Royd.

The Seasiders opened the scoring with a penalty from skipper Tom Ratcliffe before running in a couple of tries, one converted, in a lethargic first-half performance which nevertheless saw them lead 15-3 at the break, fly-half Michael Thwaite having landing a penalty for the visitors.

A try within a minute of the re-start got the second-half ball rolling as coach Lee Douglas’ charges took control and scored seven touchdowns without reply including a brace apiece for winger Graeme Jeffrey and prop Wesley Langkilde.

A convincing second half performance was rewarded with their biggest win of the season and a bonus point which sees the Silver Royd club move up to fifth in Yorkshire One and avenge a big 42-21 defeat at North Ribblesdale earlier in the season.
