Heath hit back straight after half-time, running in a try under the posts, which was comfortably converted to level the scores up at 7-7.

Scarborough weren't to be denied and hit back immediately, Aaron Wilson crashing over to put the away side ahead again.

Hogg couldn't convert, leaving Scarborough 12-7 ahead.

Heath were handed a way back into the game due to poor discipline from Lee Douglas' men.

A penalty following an infringement at a ruck made it 12-10, before another penalty handed Heath a 13-12 advantage.

Once again Scarborough showed their resilience, and they regained the lead when youngster Jonty Holloway touched down out wide to make it 17-13 with just 10 minutes left on the clock.

Another lack of discipline saw Heath land another penalty, making it 17-16 and setting up a nervy final six minutes.

Young ensured Scarborough would come away with the victory as he dived over in the corner, Hogg landing a tricky conversion to round the scoring off and seal the away side a 24-16 win.
