DAN BARRETT smashed 101 off only 53 balls as Dunnington beat their Academy side by 15 runs in the Foss Evening Cricket League.

His brutal century included nine fours and seven maximums and only ended on the penultimate ball of the innings as Dunnington totalled 134-3 from their 18 overs.

The Academy boys had initially kept a tight rein, restricting their club-mates to 30-1 in seven overs thanks to tight bowling by Sam Gray and Aaron Reid.

Dan Andrew (28) kept the Academy in the hunt but despite a captain's innings of 54 by Jonny Andrew, they fell short. Both Andrews fell to Jack Spofforth who took 5-13 off four overs.

Osbaldwick swept to a nine-wicket victory against Woodhouse Grange with 21 balls to spare.

Woodhouse found themselves in trouble at 49-5 after 14 overs. A quickfire 42 not out off 20 deliveries from Matt Durkin took them to 97-7.

Osbaldwick's reply was always above the required rate, and they reached their target in the 15th over, thanks to 52 not out from Jacob Smith, well supported by Andy Richardson (33no).

York conceded their game at Bubwith.

BISHOPTHORPE cruised to a 65-run victory in division two thanks to a sensational hat-trick from 13-year-old spinner Joe Stowe.

Stockton & Hopgrove were 53-5 in reply to the visitors' 123-9 when Stowe was introduced into the attack. All three of his hat-trick victims were clean bowled from balls that turned from outside the stump as he ended up with 5-10 from 3.1 overs.

AJ Clarke chipped in with three wickets as Stockton were skittled for 58, almost half the runs coming from Jamie Kerrison (25).

Earlier, Ben Smith (39) was the mainstay for Bishops after Sam Davies and Andrew Seager scored at more than ten an over for the first four overs.

Retreat continued their promotion push again indebted to Salman Syed as they defeated nine-man Melbourne by 25 runs. Retreat recovered from 31-2 to post 112 thanks to Syed's unbeaten 60. He has now scored 206 league runs and only been out once so far this season.

In response, Melbourne were 24-0 off five overs but the introduction of Graeme Byrne (2-20) and Syed (1-5) slowed the run-rate. Despite 27 from George Batty, Melbourne slipped behind as Connor Sanderson took 3-18 and Syed took three outfield catches.

Heworth outclassed Yapham by ten wickets with the village side restricted to 87-8 by Will Etty (2-11), Paddy Slade (2-25) and wicket maidens from Chris Gartland (1-17) and Martin Boothroyd (1-15).

Martin Pearson shone with 37 off 25 balls but, in reply, Heworth's Sean Leetham (46no) and Finn Scott (38no) won the game in 14.4 overs.

Bishop Wilton earned a much-needed win by beating Barmby Moor by 13 runs in the last over.

Louis Sangwin was Wilton's top scorer with 21 as Charlie Cameron (2-11) bowled a good three-over spell on a dull wicket while Dan Litherland finished with 2-18 off four overs.

Needing 101 to win, Moor struggled early on against Will Cardy. Moor upped the pace but leg-spinner Mike Newhouse (2-16) tightened things up and trapped top-scorer Shaun Duncan in his second over.

The game looked in the balance until Ed Hutchinson struck twice in an over, and last man Mark Smith, batting with his son Adam, was run out in a desperate attempt to score 16 in the last over.

OVINGTON openers Joe Whale and Pete Kelly put on 127 against Aviva Vikings to set up victory in Foss Evening League division three.

Kelly made 41 while Whale hammered 73 off 42 balls, including five sixes and five fours, before being caught in the deep. Matt Besford (26) helped push Ovington to 181 off 20 overs.

Aviva quickly moved to 73-0, their highest opening stand of the season, before Charlie Buckley (3-36) took the wickets of veteran Sankara S Dhakshinamurthy (37) and newcomer Siddath Elango (33) in the same over, helped by boundary catches by Whale and Alistair Souch, the latter pouching three in the match.

Ryan Pepper (22) and Agawal Ankar (23no) pushed the Vikings to 164, but it was 17 runs short of their target. Ovington's best bowlers were Josh Fletcher (3-18) and Harry Buckley (2-22).

Ali Fothergill (36no) led Westow to a seven-wicket win against Thixendale.

Thixendale’s openers had earlier put on 34 before Alex Machen (25) was caught behind off Nathan Pratt. The score moved on to 45 before a dramatic collapse saw eight wickets fall for 18 runs. J Stockdale (16) was the only other batsman to hit double figures as Dale were bowled out for 64.

The key wicket-takers were Jack Bagshaw (3-6), Will Hartley (2-1) and Joe Simpson (2-10).

Westow limped to 20-3 as Machen (2-10) made life difficult but Fothergill and Nathan Pratt (18no) took Westow home with seven overs to spare, Fothergill winning the game with a massive six.

Stamford Bridge Academy lost a wicket in the first over against Retreat II but opener Ollie Pimlott hit 69, including three sixes. Fida Hussain (3-15) came to the fore before youngster Harry Blythe (14no) and Liam Easton (11no) took the Academy to 124-4 from 20 overs.

Retreat started slowly against tidy bowling from Pimlott (0-4). The openers then got going with N Shefta (50no) and Hussain (72) taking the home side to 122 before the first wicket fell, by which time victory was assured.

A young Woodhouse Grange Academy team posted a challenging 126-5 in 18 overs against Tang Hall Tigers.

It included a classy 42 from opener Tom Burdett and a late 26 from Chris Bilton, restricted slightly by the bowling of Tigers skipper Steven Tait (2-23).

Andy Parkinson (23) and Gareth Sullivan (16) responded but the Tigers fell short by 19 runs following an excellent fielding display.
