Ashley Townley opened the scoring for Scalby inside the first minute, but Sam Medd's side were pegged back when Al Wray's free-kick took a deflection and wrong-footed Max Tadman in the Scalby net to level things up.
Hosts Rosette led at the interval after Wray clinically found the bottom corner, and despite Scalby dominating the second half, they couldn't find a way through the Rosette rearguard and the second division outfit sealed their spot in the second half.
Wray was the stand-out for Rosette in a strong team effort, while boss Medd couldn't single out a man of the match for the visitors.
