University of Gloucestershire All Golds 22-30 Oldham RLFC
Oldham keep pressure on leaders
Oldham kept pace with York and Hunslet at the top of the Kingstone Press Championship 1 standings thanks to a 30-22 win over Gloucestershire All Golds.
With York trouncing Hunslet 40-0 at Huntington Stadium, third-placed Oldham narrowed the gap to second place to just two points with a thorough display at the Prince of Wales Stadium.
A brace of tries from John Ford and further touch downs from Josh Crawley, Dale Bloomfield, Michael Ward and Mo Agoro helped Oldham to their sixth league victory of the campaign. Steve Roper had a so-so day with the boot - converting just three of the away side's six tries.
The All Golds gave a good account of themselves with tries from Miles Fairbank, Scott Claridge, Casey Canterbury and Craig Cook, but in the end they could not compete with the Roughyeds' superior firepower.
