KNARESBOROUGH scored a potentially significant victory in Hunters York & District Senior League division one west by winning convincingly at fellow promotion rivals Osbaldwick.

The visitors' eventual total of 207 owed much to a fifth-wicket partnership of 76 between Tashmial Henry (65) and Andy Ward (35), the former completing a second half-century of the season before becoming one of three wickets for Matthew Hattee (3-41).

Opener Adam Burton (27) top scored for the home side, who were bowled out for 89 in reply, Jordan Tear (3-33) and Toby Giddings (3-20) both picking up three wickets.

Easingwold are three points off the top following a 114-run victory at Dringhouses.

The visitors recovered from 60-4 to post 204-8, Jacob Green (3-40) with two of the first four wickets before a 112 stand between Jack Redshaw (71) and Paul Skilbeck (44) put their side in the ascendancy.

Dringhouses were bowled out for 90, with opener Tom Owen making 34 while Stephen Piercy (3-29) and Toby Stirke (3-10) did the damage for Easingwold.

The last-wicket pair of Jacob Newman and Alex Stone snatched a dramatic victory for Heworth at Carlton Towers.

Kalpesh Maheshwari took 3-35 as the home side were bowled out for 144 before contributing 55 to the visitors' chase.

Thirsk took maximum points for the first time in 2021 with a four-wicket win at Clifton Alliance, whose Elliott Precious (5-40) picked up a five-wicket haul for the hosts.

David Taylor (31) top scored in the hosts' 120 total, James Wilkinson taking 4-25.

Harrogate beat Bolton Percy by 79 runs while Sessay lost by just four runs to Thorp Arch & Boston Spa.

Beverley Town’s last-wicket pair rescued a draw for their side in division one east in their top-of-the-table clash against Bridlington, who retain top spot.

Skipper Nick Zakrzewski (99 not out) batted the entire Scarborough innings in their draw against Woodhouse Grange.

Ted Batty (66) and Robert Draper (48) gave Grange an ideal start as they chased 272-9, combining for an opening partnership of 95. Mike Burdett added 39.

Charlie Hopper (4-61) removed both Batty and Burdett.

Despite dismissing all of Pocklington’s top five, Rob Gainer (5-34) finished on the losing side as Sutton-on-Hull were bowled out for 96 in reply to their hosts' 235.

Howard Johnson made 41 before becoming the fourth of Gainer’s haul and it needed Alex Downey (76) batting at number eight to push the total on.

Captain Gainer (35no) was one of just two Sutton batters to reach double figures as the trio of Ben Shingles (3-26), Harry Collins (3-28) and Connaire Brattan (3-15) all picked up cheap wickets.
