BUBWITH continued their unbeaten run in Foss Evening Cricket League division one as they beat Asgard Vikings in a close game.

Freddie Collins’ 64 set Bubwith off to a good start, but key wickets from Gulab Mohammad Khan (36-3) gave a dent to the building of a final total of 125-6 from 18 overs.

The Vikings also made a positive opening and looked to have done enough but fell a run short at 124-4.

Heworth moved clear of the relegation places with a victory over Middleton/North Dalton. Heworth’s sharp bowling attack limited the visitors to 96-7 from 20 overs, Shaun State and Alan Lees both top-scoring with 27.

The hosts’ openers got off to a flyer in their innings as Jack Wilkinson fell short of a half-century on 46 which was quickly aided by Robert Draper (29 not out).

Heworth reached the winning line in the 13th over, closing on 99-1.

Woodhouse Grange caused the shock of the weekend by toppling second-placed Osbaldwick. The fifth-placed Woodhouse Grange scored a commendable 116-6 from their 20 overs, with Scott Shepherd leading the way with 56.

In reply, Osbaldwick never got started and were bowled all out for 56, with each of Grange’s six bowlers taking wickets.

Barmby Moor put a nine-point gap between themselves and bottom club Yapham at the foot of the table.

162-8 was Barmby Moor’s closing score from 18 overs, a tally which Yapham failed to come close to, ending on 115-8 in reply.

An impressive score of 87 from Cameron Burdass led York to 134-8 from 18 overs, with Will Cardy taking four wickets for 30 runs for Bishop Wilton.

Wilton’s response began well but Kieran Blake’s 3-30 removed the key wickets that resulted in the away side finishing on 103-9.

The high-scoring Thixendale maintained their recent form by reaching 194-3 in 18 overs against Westow.

A remarkable 136 runs were scored from boundaries - 10 sixes and 19 fours - from their innings.

The imposing total set proved far too strong as Westow closed on 98-8.

Pocklington are second behind Thixendale after a victory over Woodhouse.

Ben Thompson’s 35no saw Pockington recover from 15-3 to make a respectable 94-7. In reply, openers James Finch (25) and Ted Baty (28) put Grange on course for victory but a flurry of wickets stemmed the tide.

The middle order were unable to score in the same way as Woodhouse Grange concluded at 87-5 after 20 overs.
