York City Knights 26-16 University of Gloucestershire All Golds
York ease past All Golds
York City Knights got their Kingstone Press Championship 1 campaign off to a winning start following a 26-16 triumph over Gloucestershire All Golds at Huntington Stadium.
Gary Thornton's side went ahead in the 11th minute courtesy of Ben Dent and although the All Golds responded with a converted score from Danny Thomas, the Knights took a 16-6 half-time lead thanks to tries from Jake Joynt and Ben Hardcastle, who converted both.
Quick scores from Marcus Elliot and Aidan Jenkins, who converted the former's, levelled the scores after the interval before York sealed the victory with two late tries from Pat Smith and Jason Golden, with Hardcastle converting the latter.
