ON a wet afternoon the Whitby Community College 6th form boys travelled to Scarborough College

Soon after kick-off, Scarborough used the blind side quickly and scored an early try.

The next few phases of Scarborough attacks met with resolute defence and Whitby began to claw their way back into the game.

A good box kick from scrum-half Clennan was caught by Cameran Leadley who went close to scoring.

Then Whitby took control of the game and Scarborough twice infringed for Sam Webster to slot two penalties.

Whitby were now ahead and started to make some useful breaks, keeping the ball tight to their forwards.

The turning point of the game came on the half-hour – a good move in the backs saw Leadley dive for the corner.

Not only did he fail to ground the ball, he also injured his shoulder in the process.

The second half saw a well-organised Scarborough team pull together two or three useful passages of play and they were soon ahead.

Both teams battled on in a close fought second half and Scarborough again came away with the spoils.

A well-executed move from their backs finished the game with a late try.

Whitby put up a decent performance. Newcomers Wilson and Menzies played well throughout the afternoon.

Joe Lenton had a solid game at outside centre and was often ably supported by Matt Kendrew on the wing.

Connor Clennan led by example and kept rallying his forwards who played extremely well as a team.

Man of the match: Connor Clements - never stopped working from start to finish.
