Oldham RLFC 16-18 Oxford RLFC
Oxford hold off Oldham
Oxford withstood a second-half Oldham fightback to edge a 18-16 victory in The Kingstone Press Championship 1.
Visitors Oxford led 12-4 at the breaks following tries from Brett Robinson and Matt Hadden - which were converted by Jonny Leather - either side of Adam Files' try for the hosts.
Danny Langtree's try 10 minutes into the second half reduced the deficit and Lewis Palfrey added the extras to make it 12-10.
But nine minutes later an Andrew Hoggins put Oxford further in front and Leather made no mistake with the conversion. Langtree crossed again for the home side with nine minutes remaining and Palfrey's goal set up a tense finale, but Oxford held on.
