The Villagers’ only score at Elmpark Way came in the 74th minute, when they were already trailing 28-0.
Winger Connor Holliday touched down to give the visitors a 19th-minute lead and man of the match Scott Lofthouse crossed on 31 minutes for a try converted by scrum-half Ryan Robb.
Lewis Smith’s 35th-minute try made it 14-0 at half-time.
Robb converted a 45th minute try by Ben Milburn and Holliday crossed for his second on 55 minutes.
Winger Chris Highton rounded off the Kells scoring with a 67th-minute touch down.
Heworth man of the match Adam Jones got the home side on the scoresheet with a try six minutes from time.
Full-back Leigh Rientoul added the extras.
There was no game for York Acorn in the premier division.
