MT Lawley was gallant but ultimately beaten on Saturday, going down to a red-hot Scarborough in batting-friendly conditions at Abbett Park in round six of Premier Cricket.
Chasing 397 for victory on a flat wicket, the visitors managed consistent partnerships but struggled to maintain the run rate.
The Hawks looked in contention at 1-155 but wickets fell regularly.
Callum Taylor showed his class with a run-a-ball 77, while Oliver Mouchemore scored a patient 70.
Dylan Sharman managed a half-century, with the side eventually bowled out for 339.
Mt Lawley remains winless after six rounds as they turn their attention to Perth this weekend at Breckler Park.
