DUNNINGTON comfortably saw off North Dalton in Foss Evening League division one - despite the game being held up after a swarm of bees attacked Dalton's fielders.

In the first innings, Dalton failed to capitalise on a good start by openers Dave Brent (22) and Simon Tate (21) and ended up with 84-7.

Slow bowler Sam Tattersall took 4-8 from four overs.

Bubwith got off to a slow start but Mark Holmes hit a quickfire 20 before Rich Readman (20) and Mark Sapwell (38) enjoyed a 45-run stand to see them to 110-7.

Osbaldwick lost three wickets by the fourth over, and Tom Young's power-hitting for 59 wasn't enough as the accurate Sapwell (3-14) and Goddard (2-20) kept the game under control.

Woodhouse Grange scored 141-1 off their 18 overs thanks to a classy unbeaten 73 from Sam Beales and Nathan Saltmer's punishing 42 not out, which included four sixes. In reply, York started brightly thanks to 28 from Toby Giddings, but 3-22 from Chris Suddaby coupled with sharp catching saw York's youngsters fall 37 short.

In division two, opener Sean Leetham (74) scored his maiden half-century, belting four sixes and four fours, as Heworth powered to 145-7 against Barmby Moor.

Sam Appleton took 3-21 in four overs for Moor, who didn't get anywhere near their target. Tom Stubley managed 35 of their 83-9 as Andy Armstrong (3-4), Tom Feasby (2-18) and Paddy Slade (2-18) got among the wickets. Olly Brown was forced to retire while batting after dislocating a knee.

Bishop Wilton struggled against Yapham on a wet wicket offering variable bounce and movement. Only Dan Peel (24no) made any impact as BW closed on 88 from 18 overs.

Fellow opener Jason Nattrass scored 21 off 15 deliveries and Martin Pearson (24no) hit a six to win the match.

Salman Syed continued his excellent form as Retreat I defeated Stockton & Hopgrove by five wickets. Like in other games, traffic gridlock around York saw several players arrive late so overs were reduced.

Alistair Byers (2-6) and Syed (2-2) made early inroads into Stockton and only Matt Bradshaw (27no) provided resistance with Ed White (1-1 from three overs) being virtually unplayable.

Needing 64 to win, Syed (33no) steered Retreat home by five wickets with an over left.
