Rufforth helped their survival hopes with a comprehensive 75-33 triumph at home to Appleton Roebuck 2. A near-flawless 31 from Rufforth’s Phil Sinton/Will Edmond was centrepiece of the victory, which leaves Appleton Roebuck 11 points adrift at the foot of the table.

Boston Spa 2 furthered their division six title aspirations with a convincing 64-44 conquest of third-placed Wilberfoss 2. A 24-game haul from first pair Pete Smith/Ralph Grote saw the leaders on their way.

Wigginton 4 climb to second following a 71-37 demolition of Pocklington.

The division’s basement pair, Bishopthorpe 1 and Poppleton 3 fought out a gruelling 54-54 draw. The top pairs for each side excelled, with 23 from Sam Watson/Tim Mandle for Bish and 24 for Tony Howard/Josh Andrews for Pop. The stalemate leaves both clubs 13 points off safety.

Heworth 2 are now 21 points off safety following a heavy home defeat to Harrogate Spa 2, who themselves are fighting relegation.

For the second week in a row, the league's top scorers were Brad Triffit and Mike Triffit for Knaresborough 2. They lost only one of the 36 games to help their club to an 84-24 home win over Wigginton 5.

Despite this, the top spot in division eight continues to elude them, given the blistering form of Dunnington, who inflicted a crushing away day defeat on Bishopthorpe 2.
