YORK completed a North One East double over Bridlington to plunge the Seasiders further into relegation trouble with two games to play.

Second-half tries from Joe Maud, Rob Hodges, Chris Peace and Shane Goulding secured an ultimately comfortable 29-0 triumph for the hosts, with Liam Hessay kicking the rest of the points.

While the Clifton Park club are sat in seventh with their league status secured for next term, second-bottom Bridlington are locked in a three-way fight for survival with Cleckheaton and West Leeds to avoid suffering the drop with already-doomed Consett.

Bridlington began the game well with their forwards retaining possession and their back-line looking pacey. The York defence was secure, though, limiting the visitors to two tough penalty kicks, as full-back Yasser Omar squeezed one wide with the other falling short.

The hosts looked confident and solid when defending and threatening in attack.

.Despite advantageous field position and attacking opportunities for both teams and winger Hodges making good progress each time he ran with the ball, though, neither scored in an unusual first half.

Bridlington even survived ten minutes without Omar who was yellow carded for a deliberate knock-on.

But the deadlock was broken two minutes into the second half through Maud.

From a standing start in midfield, he burst through the Bridlington defence and ran in, with Hessay kicking a nice conversion.

York then used their interchange bench with Luke Stockton coming into the pack, while Freddie Potrykus rotated into the front row and Isikeli Mulase made his first-team debut at centre.

It worked with a second try added when Mulase carried strongly at centre and, after the ball was re-cycled, Hessay passed long and accurately to Hodges, who scored on the wing.

Hessay missed the conversion but did kick a long penalty a few minutes later.

Centre Peace stepped his way over the try-line to put the game beyond the visitors on the hour and, just before the final whistle, number-eight Goulding broke from the back of an attacking York scrummage and overcame heavy defensive contact to score, with Hessay kicking the conversion to wrap up proceedings.

York travel to Pocklington on Saturday before completing their season at home to Driffield on April 13.

A 69-0 against Doncaster, meanwhile, has seen York Women finish their campaign as league champions.
