York beat London in Challenge Cup again

0 0

York City Knights claimed a 14-2 victory over London Broncos at Rosslyn Park to book their place in the Third Round of the Challenge Cup.

The only points of the first half came from the boot of Ed Chamberlain, who scored a penalty after a high tackle on Broncos forward Olsi Krasniqi.

Just four minutes into the second half, York made their move and scored after Joe Porter was put through under the sticks. Kieran Dixon converted to give them a four-point lead.

Both sides had their chances to score, but it was York who went a converted try in front, after Dixon scored a penalty.

The Knights then sealed their place in Round Three, when Liam Salter was put through by Danny Kirmond to score. Dixon added the penalty to put them up by 12 with two minutes to go.

It is the second straight year York have knocked London out of the Challenge Cup, after claiming a 24-22 win at Ealing Trailfinders in the Fourth Round.

Both teams start their Championship campaigns next week. York will take on Toulouse in their first competitive match in their new home, while London face Halifax Panthers.
