Harrogate Pythons 28 v Knottingley 19

Pythons staying up

Harrogate Pythons ensured relegation is now avoided following a hard earned victory at home to Knottingley. Roared on by a massive crowd who had earlier attended a luncheon with British Lion John Bentley, the Pythons responded by piling on the pressure from the start. With Ian Binns and Hugh Tatlow in dominant form in the lineouts and Gates pack putting pressure on the Knotts scrum, Gate had the lion’s share of possession but resolute defence from the visitors restricted Gate to two penalties converted by Ross Fallenstein to give Gate a 6-0 half time lead.

The second half started well for Gate, with strong running from Jack Clarkson and Kris Starks creating a space for Max Sharp to break through. Quick recycled ball from Andy Mackay gave Joe Bentham the opportunity to score the first try out wide, converted by Fallenstein. 13-0 45 mins. Gate were now in full flow, and good work from the forwards led to a 5 metre scrum. The Gate pack heaved Knotts back over the line with Tatlow getting the try. 18-0 50 mins. Another flowing move saw Liam Kernoghan and Bentham combine well and Sam Gibbs stepped his man to add another try, converted by Fallenstein. 25-0 60 mins. Knotts fought back well to score a well worked try but were pushed back by another Fallenstein penalty. 28 5 70 mins. With Gate now stepping off the gas Knotts added a further 2 tries to make the final score Pythons 28 Knottingley 19.

The Pythons now finish the season with 3 more home games against Leeds Mods, Northallerton and Skipton.
