Perhaps it was inevitable that when the two clubs with the best goals-per-game ratios met it would result in a a high scoring match but few could imagine that Lynn, 3-1 down with ten minutes left, would fight back to claim a point.
Manager Tommy Widdrington made changes to the team that dumped Doncaster out of the FA Cup with Jordon Ponticelli and Josh Coulson not included in the squad and Josh Barrett dropped to the bench. Incoming were Kyle Callan-McFadden, Ben Stephens and Gold Omotayo.

In a match made difficult with a strong wind which was to the advantage of the home side at the start, Scarborough began on the front foot with Paul Jones keeping out a early Ashley Jackson at the expense of a corner.
Two goals in three minutes put Scarborugh in a commanding position. On 14 minutes an in-swinging Luca Colville corner was netted at the far post by Bailey Gooda and three minutes later Lewis Maloney's free kick was touched on by Kieran Weledji for leading scorer Michael Coulson, to add to his tally.
Lynn were not giving up and Scarborough had Joe Cracknell to thank for two stunning saves to deny Cameron Hargreaves and Michael Clunan.
Lynn got a deserved goal back just after the half hour when Clunan got on the end of a Tyler Denton ball into the area.
There were chances at each end after the break with Malony shooting wide for Scarborough and Barrett failing to beat the wall from a free kick for Lynn.
On 72 minutes Dom Tear put the home side back in front but with ten minutes left Widdrngton pulled a goal back for Lynn and two minutes later Omotayo scored his tenth goal of the season.
