HEWORTH’S victory at Dunnington leaves them needing just one point to secure the Foss Evening League division one title.

Neil Martin (40) and Rob Carlill (73 not out) put on 70 for Heworth’s third wicket, Carlill taking 22 from a Jack Bolam over as the Elm Park Way side rattled up 162-4.

Wickets fell regularly for Dunnington with Reece Milner striking three times in his four overs as they folded for 66.

Dunnington Academy also suffered a heavy defeat, by 10 wickets to a revitalised Middleton & North Dalton who reached their target inside 14 overs.

Yapham struggled to 88-8 against Osbaldwick whose change bowlers Ben Richardson (3-10) and Andy Butterfield (4-16) were in the thick of the wickets. Matt Hattee (36no) took control of the run chase as Osso won with plenty in the tank.

Bubwith’s poor run continued with a five-wicket defeat at Woodhouse Grange. Rich Walton set the tone by taking a wicket with the first ball of the game as last year’s champions laboured to 92-7. Will Axup claimed 3-21. Grange knocked the runs off in 13 overs, Josh Jackson (45no) leading the way.

Unbeaten York took another step toward the division two title by beating Woodhouse Grange Academy.

Grange slumped to 17-5 with Matthew Scurry and Sam Backhouse taking a couple of wickets each. Mike Burdett (37) and Chris Bilton (42) managed to get the total to a respectable 101-7. York’s fourth-wicket pair of Ian Jarvis (46no) and Matthew Hodson (25no) steered the Clifton Parkers to victory.

Retreat’s third-wicket pair, Sal Sayed (62no) and Bruce Kitchener (43no), propelled their side to 143-2 at Bishopthorpe. Ian Holmes (42) gave the hosts hope, hitting three sixes, but once he was stumped off the bowling of John Latham (2-13) the Bishops were bowled out for 106.

Barmby Moor kept their promotion push on track with a 21-run win against Heworth Colts.

Moor made 147-2 from 18 overs with Tom Stubley finishing on 99 not out after Andy Mudd made 39.

In reply, 15-year-old Lewis Meek scored a rapid 40, but the Heworth youngsters could not maintain the pace in the final overs.

Bishop Wilton passed 10-man Tang Hall Tigers' total of 75 in the last over, requiring a couple of big blows from Matthew Jones at the end to seal the points.

Tom Collins scored successive centuries as Hemingbrough kept up the pressure on division three leaders Thixendale.

He struck 109 in Wednesday’s win against Westow and topped that the following night with a blistering 146 against Heslington Centurions.

Thixendale also notched back-to-back wins to maintain their one-point advantage at the top.

Collins’ first scoring shot against Westow was a six and this set the platform in Hemingborough’s 180-5. Westow lost early wickets, crumbling to 85 all out.

On Thursday, Collins was even more severe on Heslington as Hemingbrough posted a massive 215-2, Glen Crouch chipping in with an unbeaten 37.

Thixendale also win on Thursday by seeing off Stamford Bridge Academy by 62 runs.

In reply to 159-8, young Bridge batsman Taylor Stanton made 47 before being bowled in the last over. Twenty-four hours earlier, Thixendale had beaten Melbourne by 80 runs.

Tom Cookson smashed 82 as Ovington secured their third win on the bounce, beating Heslington. Cookson and Tom Armes (51) enjoyed 94-run partnership in Ovington’s 168-3. Centurions skipper Lewis Wrathall responded with an unbeaten 60 but his side fell short by 32 runs.

Martin Veysey (19no) struck the final ball for four to give Stamford Bridge victory against Pocklington.
