EASINGWOLD have gone top of Hunter's York & District Senior Cricket League division one west with their third straight win.

Stephen Peircy took 3-29 for Easingwold against visitors Heworth, who found themselves 52-7, but Daniel Toone (40no) and Graham Knott (49no) put on a stand of 101 to extend the contest.

Knott then removed Piercy in the opening over of Easingwold's reply but hopes of an upset were quelled by a 99-run partnership between Kyle Waite (65no) and Tom Wilson (44), which set up an eventual eight-wicket win.

Former table-toppers Knaresborough (215-9) were unable to overcome Thorp Arch & Boston Spa (306-4).

A partnership of 176 between Liam Hancy (105) and Jamie Thornton (74 not out) set up Dringhouses for a comfortable victory at home to Clifton Alliance.

An unbeaten 36 by Max Thomas added to the total allowing them to reach 246-3.

George Wilson (6-52) ensured the visitors were never in with a chance, taking six of the first seven wickets to fall as they slumped to 77-7 - a position from which they never recovered, eventually being bowled out for 117.

Patrington (271-9) went third with a 96-run win at Pocklington.
