Scarborough Pirates’ Council Cup run came to a crashing halt with a 32-18 loss at Hull Isberg on Saturday, despite the visitors steaming into a 12-0 lead.
Pacy wing Jamie Cornish and Josh McNeil scored a try apiece to put the visitors 12-0 ahead in the first half.
Cornish claimed a second try in the second period, with McNeil converting all three, but the home side fought back to book their place in the next round.
Pirates player-coach Adam Lee said: “We had a great first half but we were just beaten by their fitness in the second half.
“Our man of match was hooker Nicky Brining, he was outstanding.”
The Pirates are back in league action this week as they tackle Beverley at Eastway.
