DRINGHOUSES remain bottom of the Hunters York & District Senior League division one after only managing a draw with fellow strugglers Heworth at St Helen’s Road.

Heworth made a commendable 207-6 with the bat, with Alfie Oliver top-scoring with 63.

A century opening stand between Chris Evans (66) and Gary Wilson (34) ought to have formed the basis for a successful run chase for Dringhouses but eventually they closed on 179-9.

An unbeaten 72 from George Owram led Harrogate to a 124 runs win at Bolton Percy.

Harrogate reached 207-8 but that was out of reach of the home side who were dismissed for just 83, bowler Garrick Eckard finishing on 4-12.

Welton made it three wins from four with a dominant display at Clifton Alliance winning by 141 runs.

The victors posted an impressive 242-8 thanks to contributions from Matthew (35) and Ben Wilkinson (45). The home side were never in the hunt all out for 101.

Knaresborough came off second best against promotion rivals Woodhouse Grange in a low scoring game at Aspin Lane.

Grange made 125-7 but, in spite of skipper Dave Girling's 49, Knaresborough finished 11 runs short on 114-8.

Carlton Towers climbed back into the promotion places but missed out on maximum points against Driffield Town.

Mark Holmes inspired (72) a score of 218-7 for Carlton but while Town could only hit 177-9 in response.

Goole Town retained their advantage but only just winning at home against Hornsea by a single wicket.

Hornsea were all out for 146, with the top-score of 36 from number eight seeing them to respectable total as bowler Guy Richardson posted figures of 3-25.

Goole got to the winning margin by making 147-9 late in the match, Ashton Nottingham leading the way with 40 runs.
