BUBWITH stayed unbeaten in the Foss Evening League first division with a fine victory at Woodhouse Grange.

Woodhouse’s openers, Josh Jackson (46) and Chris Suddaby (26), raced to 72 inside eight overs but, once Craig Lawson (2-13) removed them, the rest of the line-up stuttered to 125-7.

In reply, Charles Lambert fell early on to Sam Beales but the in-form Mark Holmes hit an unbeaten 74, including seven sixes, and James Knibb 37 not out as Bubwith won by eight wickets.

Heworth also remained unbeaten with a four-wicket win over Dunnington in a low-scoring contest.

Dunnington Academy produced a fine bowling display to restrict Middleton & North Dalton to 97-6 off their 18 overs.

Josh Tattersall opened the reply by hitting 10 off the first over on his way to 49, before Harrison Mussell (18no) and Josh Archer (13no) saw the Academy home in 14.4 overs with eight wicket in hand.

Yapham took the first four Osbaldwick wickets for just 11 runs, Alex Nattrass ending with 2-6 off two overs and Stuart Wainwright 4-7 from four.

Anthony Butterfield hit back with 37 but Osso struggled to 71-9.

Dan Ellwood took 2-5 in the reply but Martin Pearson (35) and Tom Binns (21no) saw Yapham win with three overs remaining.

York beat Woodhouse Grange Academy by 41 runs to stay top of division two, while Retreat stayed second after opponents Bishopthorpe conceded.

Barmby Moor got their first win, by six wickets against Heworth Colts, as Tom Stubley starred with both bat and ball.

Joel Johnson (29no) and Harry Sheppeard (27) guided Heworth to 111-4 after 18 overs, Stubley taking 2-5.

Stubley then took his team home with 43 not out after skipper John Appleton had changed the course of a tight game by smashing 29 off 10 balls including three sixes.

Bishop Wilton edged Tang Tigers on the last ball to likewise get their first win.

Tight bowling by veteran Stephen Tait, wickets from Stephen Clarke (3-6) and John Bowley (2-26) - after a 100-mile journey to make the game - and a spectacular 40-yard run-out by Jack Sinclair restricted Wilton to 111-9. Alex Brown (41) and Dan Peel (38) were the main run-getters.

But the Tang Hall batsmen struggled early on as Mike Newhouse took 3-9 and, although Tom Hewer (41) ensured a tight finish, he then holed out and bowler Eddie Hutchinson held his nerve in the final over.

In division three, Westow were denied a first victory as Stockton & Hopgrove’s last pair scrambled a single off the final ball to force a tie.

Westow’s batsmen had earlier found it hard on a difficult track. Matt Shipley (30) kept things ticking over but wickets fell to Andy Gordon (4-17) as they limped to 81-6.

In the reply, Jamie Smith took two wickets in his first over. Jamie Kerrison and Kalum Perera (21) got things going Stockton’s way until Ali Fothergill (3-16) and Ted Hughes took five wickets between them for 27 runs in an eight-over period.

Stockton needed four to win off the last over, that single off the last ball giving them a share of the spoils.

Thixendale lost to Aviva Vikings. Gul Fida Hussain (49), arriving just in time to open Aviva’s innings, hit the second ball of the match for six to show their intent.

Will Megginson (2-21) and Guy Scothern (1-27) took early wickets but Ankush Sehgal (24) kept runs flowing and late cameos by CB Singh (25) and Abid Hussain (30no) took the Vikings to 149-7.

Thix’s reply began slowly against tight bowling. Joe Robinson (28) and Simon Walgate (49) accelerated the scoring but the introduction of the quickies late on restricted them to 130-4.

At Stamford Bridge, Hemingbrough racked up 146-3 to win by 25 runs, Lee Wild smashing 91. Ollie Pimlott (71no) led Stamford’s reply but they fell short at 121-5.

Jed Fowke (25) and Joe Browning (33no) put on 49 for the eighth wicket to help an otherwise struggling Ovington to finish on 91-8 from their 20 overs at Pocklington.

Opener Ben Thompson (51no) smashed a boundary to clinch Pock's first win of the season with seven overs to spare.

In a game reduced to 18 overs, 10-man Stillingfleet pipped Melbourne by three runs.

Cieran Brooke returned 4-2-11-3 as Fleet struggled on a difficult wicket to 77-7. Melbourne's batters had even worse trouble, managing only 14 runs from the first eight overs. They tried to up the rate but lost wickets frequently to Chris Warner (2-13) and Chris Woodfine (4-17). They needed 23 off the last two overs so did well to go close.
