YAPHAM took a real pasting by unbeaten Foss Evening League division one leaders Heworth.

The front-runners set off at seven an over for the first six overs despite the loss of a couple of wickets.

Yapham lost Jamie Holman to Alfie Oliver’s second delivery, nosedived to 24-4 and never recovered with Oliver taking 3-6.

A brutal 100 not out from 31 balls from Jamie Nesfield inspired Middleton & North Duffield to their second win of the season.

They progressed to 89-6 thanks to 31 by Rich Gibson. Nesfield then blasted 13 maximums as 99 runs came off the last 40 balls in a total of 185-5.

In reply, Sam Blain clattered three sixes in a quick 27. Josh Archer hit an unbeaten 26 off a dozen deliveries as the Academy romped home.

Dunnington’s top three scored the vast bulk of their runs as they made 88-7 against Osbaldwick, led by Harry Griffiths (36). Osso opener Lewis Sansome made 33 not out and was supported by powerful hitting from Francis Kinsella (20) and Tom Young (25no) as they won with four overs to spare.

Dan Peel provided the thrust for Bishop Wilton, clearing the boundary on several occasions on his way to 72 in a total of 118-6.

Grange’s batsmen got off to a flying start until the introduction of Jamie Creaser (3-23). Grange needed 16 to win from the final over bowled by 13-year-old Billy Spruyt. Steve Burdett clubbed 14 from the first five balls and a scrambled single from the last ball tied the game.

Aviva Vikings batsman Qudrat Aziz produced an amazing innings in division three to virtually beat Heslington singled-handedly.
