GRAHAM KNOTT returned amazing figures of 7-4 as Heworth II skittled hosts Civil Service for only 19 in Hunters York & District Senior Cricket League division three south.
In one of the quickest games in recent times, Knott's feat meant the visitors were only in the field for 13 overs. It then took a mere 11 balls for Heworth to win by ten wickets.
Scarborough inflicted a seven-wicket defeat on Fenner, who were dismissed for 94. Scarborough skipper Joe Padmore led the victory pursuit with an unbeaten 35.
Rowntrees & Huntington head the division after taking the bulk of the points at home to Stamford Bridge when batting first they scored 183-9, with Tom Shaw (72) and Nick Johnson (40) compiling an opening stand of 156.
Despite Ian Fraser’s unbeaten 49, the visitors fell somewhat short at 165-7.
Pickering took the bulk of the points at Selby after scoring 185-8 in the first innings, thanks mainly to Leslie Welburn's 79. The hosts were pegged to 151-8, with Mike Smales scoring 54.
In division three north, 16 wickets fell in a low-scoring game as home side Whitkirk took all 30 points in a four-wicket win against Drax.
Drax were dismissed for 38 inside 22 overs and Whitkirk won despite Ben Worley’s 3-12.
Sessay beat Huby by three wickets after bowling their visitors out for 129. Huby lost their last eight wickets for 34 runs, despite the efforts of Hugh Sheddon (62) and Tom Piercy (26).
The home reply was led by Matthew Wass, who hit 74.
Easingwold jumped above hosts Sheriff Hutton Bridge in the table with a five-wicket win. The home side's 131-9 was not enough as the Ramsay boys, Charles (32) and Luke (67), engineering a victory with overs to spare.
