Easts led 22-6 at the break after scores for Ryan Lillywhite, Priestley and Kyle Quinlan, plus two Priestley goals.
Skipper Mike Welsh got a second Heworth try on 42 minutes, but Dale Pattison crossed for the visitors three minutes later before Priestley rounded off the scoring and his hat-trick with two tries.
Chris Varley, Barron, Mark Musgrave and Mike Crossman were Heworth’s top performers.
