HEWORTH dropped from first to third in division three south after getting the worst of a draw against New Earswick.

Four batsmen contributed to Earswick’s 174-5 as Dan Elwood took 3-35. Andy James top-scored with 35, Stuart Massheder added 27, Marcus Johnson made 30 and Tom Hewer was unbeaten with 29.

There then followed a nail bighting reply, led by Jonathon Draper's 51. Paul Neal weighed in with 36 and G Sykes was unbeaten with 30 when the Heworth reply ended on 173-7, just one run behind their opponents' total.

Martyn Hewitson did much to keep his side marginally ahead by taking 4-63.

Fenner kept up their promotion drive with a solid eight-wicket win over Stamford Bridge.

Adam Michaels hit an undefeated 55 in his side’s winning score of 111-2 and Liam Hutchinson took 3-17. Stamford's Ian Fraser made 36 not out and Martin Veysey had 2-20.

Welton & Brough batted first against Rowntrees & Huntington, but their batsmen struggled as Steve Beales took 3-14 and Robert Steven 4-12. Their modest 75 proved to be no problem for the visitors, who moved to an eight-wicket win as Mark Keyworth hit a seasonal best 30.

Scarborough kept in touch with the leading group when they took 26 points from a draw at Goole Town.

The North Mariners made 243-5, with Ashish Kundi hitting 79, and then Goole hit back with runs from L Haywood (63) and Brendan Lewis (51). The bowling of C Grey held sway as his return of 5-40 reduced Goole to 208-7.

Civil Service improved their position when they beat fellow strugglers Pickering by 63 runs.

Ayre was the best of their batting as he made 49. He was supported by E Newby with 30 and Glen Crouch, who made 32 in a total of 173-8.

For the Pikes, Tony Evans had 3-37 and N Cowton 4-47. When Pickering responded, M Butler made 29 but Crouch took 3-17 to have them all out for 110.

Two teams fighting to avoid relegation met at Selby, where visiting Yapham emerged as victors by three wickets.

Selby were restricted to 140-9 as John Flint took 3-20 and A Nattrass 4-27. Martin Pearson then made 46 not out as Yapham claimed the spoils.
