Bees 33-53 Scarborough

Bees go Down in Opener.

It was not the way the home side wanted to start the 2018/19 campaign in North East One with a new coaching team at the helm and a desire to make a positive impression from the off. The New coaching team of Antony Posa and Hugh Gumbs will no doubt set about addressing the short comings in this performance on the training paddock, but it was Bees mistakes which allowed Scarborough to run away with the game in the first quarter of an hour and then kill off any hopes of a second half revival from the Bees by running in two more scores in the ten minutes immediately after half time. Before kick off there had been talk around the Wagon Lane ground that the Bees would be looking to play the game at pace out wide and with several new faces in the starting XV it was perhaps asking too much to expect everything to gel immediately. Having said that, the Bees were very much authors of their own downfall as they flung passes which missed their man, gave up two interceptions with two of their first ventures in to Scarborough territory and seemed to be off kilter both with ball in hand and when lining up in defence. The Bees woes were also compounded by two scores going missing when a home player dropped the ball with the line apparently at their mercy once in each half.

Full back Tom Harrison got the scoreboard moving for the visitors in the fifth minute and he was swiftly followed over the whitewash by centre Jimmy Perrett within three minutes. Perrett landed both conversions and with the Bees still hardly able to steady the ship, another defensive slip up saw Jordan Wakeham clocking up score number three before the game was 15 minutes old. The home side did then seem to cut down on the mistakes and start to play some rugby of their own and when Michael Crotch drove over the try line in the 25th minute there was a glimmer of hope that the Bees could be back in the game. With Half time approaching a darting run from Benny Greaves pulled the Bees back to 24 points to 12 in arrears after new signing Lance Taylor slotted the extra points. However instead of going in at half time two converted scores behind, the Bees found themselves behind the sticks again as Jonty Holloway burrowed in at the left corner.

A 17 point deficit is not insurmountable, as the Bees have shown with a couple of notable comebacks in recent times, but it was vital that the home side got the next score to get the momentum of the game back with home advantage. It was not to be as Matty Jones and Tom Ratcliff were over the whitewash for the East Coast side in the first ten minutes of the half. With Perrett continuing to knock over points with the boot it was now 43 points to 12 in favour of the visitors and the Bees only real hope was to claim a four try bonus point. Crotch brought his side within a score of that target on 55 minutes, but again momentum was lost as Scarborough romped to the other end of the field to claim their seventh try of the afternoon from Euan Govier just before the hour mark.

The Bees pack continued to bump and barge to some effect and kept taking the game to the visitors and Tom Cummins was able to get over the line to claim the bonus point score with 66 minutes played. The Bees continued to press and their efforts close to the Scarborough line were rewarded when the referee jogged under the posts to award a penalty try after he judged that some foul play by a visiting player had prevented a Bees score to the left of the posts with five minutes to play.

The Bees move across Bradford for a local derby against Cleckheaton next Saturday.
