BEN BURDETT powered Woodhouse Grange to a thumping win against Dunnington Academy in the Foss Evening Cricket League first division.

Burdett cracked an unbeaten 56 from 38 balls as Grange stormed to a nine-wicket win.

Mark Willoughby (31) top scored for the Academy - who were held to 84-6 from 16 overs - before he was dismissed by Mike Burdett's diving catch. Michael Gilbank claimed 3-28 and Dan Durkin finished with 2-20.

Dunnington’s hopes were boosted when Luke Bailey was run out for a duck in the second over but Ben Burdett and Matthew Ainley (28no) stepped on the gas with a partnership of 82 to reach their target in 11.2 overs.

York beat Wellington by six runs after Matt Swaddle (30) and Charlie Elliott (27) helped them to a healthy 136-8, which would have been greater but for the bowling of Graeme Byrne (5-19).

In reply, Sal Syed stroked an unbeaten 79 in vain.

Bubwith successfully defended a total of 92 in a low-scoring affair at Yapham. After falling to 21-2 early on, Bubwith accelerated thanks to Wes Pears' rapid 31, but Jed Vale's 3-19 helped keep the score down.

A resilient Richard Wilson (24) kept Yapham in the hunt until a collapse saw them close on 64-8. Harry Collins (3-9) and James Knibb (2-14) both bowled well again for Bubwith.

Heworth eased to a nine-wicket victory against Osbaldwick, who started brightly with Matt Hattee hitting 25, but were restricted to a below-par 94-6.

Kewell Ford (29) and Phil Holland (39no) led Heworth’s reply before Will Rymer (28no) saw Heworth home with two overs in hand.

A depleted Dunnington Colts team were no match for an experienced Middleton & North Dalton side in division two.

Mark Clarkson (78no) and Shaun Tate (49) put on 103 for M&ND’s first wicket, before Rich Lount (30no) accelerated the scoring to amass a daunting 178. Young bowler Will Hayes-Smith marked his debut by taking the only wicket to fall.

The Colts were bowled out for just 48, Sam Dasari top scoring with 14. Jack Conner picked up two wickets and spinners Rich Gibson and Sam Ullyott grabbed three apiece as M&ND won by 120 runs.

Hemingbrough started well against Aviva Vikings by removing opener Gul Fida Hussain Thathal in the second over, but second-wicket pair Sohail Akram (55) and Mounam Ejaz (34) helped Vikings post 145-4.

Kanhu Charan Pattnayak (2-29) made the breakthrough with the second ball of Hemingbrough’s innings. Thomas Shepherd (22) pushed the score along until wickets fell at regular intervals leaving the home team to close on 87-5.

Barmby Moor began aggressively against Tang Hall Tigers with opening pair Tom Stubley (67no) and Andy Mudd (25) enjoying a half-century partnership which formed the platform for a challenging 107-2 total.

Mudd backed up his batting contribution with 3-21 as Tang Hall crumbled to 55 all out. The only Tigers to get to double figures were Chris Judge and Ross Nelson.

Woodhouse Grange could only muster 48 at Bishop Wilton, for whom veteran Eddie Hutchinson was the pick of the bowlers.

Bishop Wilton also found scoring difficult but got over the line in the 15th over for the loss of three wickets.

Thixendale (127-7) edged out Westow by five runs in their division three derby, while Pocklington (84-1) eased to their second victory of the season, beating Ovington by nine wickets.

Newcomers Bolton Percy and Copmanthorpe both enjoyed debut wins in division four.

Bolton Percy (155-3) beat Aviva Vikings II by 32 runs and Copmanthorpe (118-6) defeated Stockton & Hopgrove by 39 runs, while Stamford Bridge fell to an eight-wicket defeat against Londesborough Park (89-2).
