KEIGHLEY continued their dominant start to the Yorkshire Two season with a 28-7 win over fellow chasers Northallerton.

Young winger Kristian Bealey- Kaye was the star of the show bagging a brace of tries for the hosts.

Full back Alfie Seeley was first in on the act though. From a scrum, George Marshall broke free and was forced to kick. Seeley followed up to touch down in the corner.

Although Northallerton had a lot of possession, their attacks were blunted by a well organised hard-hitting defence.

A period of stalemate was broken with a long-distance penalty from Alex Brown.

Keighley managed to stabilise their scrum and slowly got the upper hand. A line-out deep in opposition territory was driven forward, whilst the maul was still moving, stand out forward Sam Booker peeled off to crash through two defenders to score.

Keighley hoping to carry on where they had left off were guilty of over-elaboration. A move through the backs was intercepted by centre Zander Metcalf who raced 70 yards to score. The try was converted by scrum half Jed Bainbridge.

At this stage, the game could have gone either way.

Then a try out of nothing, Bealey- Kaye received the ball wide, surrounded by defenders. He calmly chipped over the top, gathered the ball, and stepped inside to score.

Although Keighley had the lead, they were unable to relax, Northallerton came at them from all angles.

After a determined defensive stint, the experienced second row of Stuart Inman and Ed Keighley, with support, gained the hard yards. A sustained series of phase play was finished off with a try for hooker and coach Declan Hampson.

In the last quarter of the game, Keighley suffered several injuries and were forced to bring on their substitutes and re-jig the team.

It made little difference, subs Lucas Uren and Morgan Robinson soon made their presence felt. Some strong runs from both forced Northallerton to retreat.

A neat break by Brown followed by quick handling gave Robinson the chance to draw the last defender before delivering a final pass to the electric winger Kristian Beeley-Kaye who crossed in the corner for a bonus point try.

Northallerton in the dying minutes of the game threw everything they had at the home team and came close to scoring. However, they were unable to break down the rugged defence.
