OA were quickly 5-0 ahead after an impressive solo effort from their captain Ed Mellen.
Harry Kentish added a further three points and the home team went in to half-time 8-0 ahead.
On a wet blustery day the OA forwards impressed with their work rate and aggressive rucking.
Charlie Deacon and Will Tominey showed great strength and determination.
Max Cross was on hand to score the next well worked try but the visitors replied with two tries and a conversion of their own making the score 13-12 to the home team.
Once again the forwards took the game to the opposition and Man of the Match Olly Grisenthwaite scored a well deserved try of his own.
A successful conversion took the game to 20-12 and that's how it remained.
