Derwent Valley Cricket League: Habton slip away after crashing at Fylingdales
2:58pm Wednesday 14th August 2013 in Sport
GREAT Habton lost ground on leaders Mulgrave in the Derwent Valley League division ‘A’ title race after crashing to defeat at mid-table Fylingdales.
Habton were shot out for 91 by Bill Estill (3-23) and Tom Shrimpton (3-17) and Dales romped to victory by eight wickets led by Rob Graves (43 not out). Mulgrave, meanwhile, had a comprehensive 138-run win over Oriel.
In division ‘B’, father and son Nigel and Matthew Pickard did all the damage as Flixton 3rds beat lowly Seamer 3rds to keep alive their promotion hopes.
Nigel hit 122 as Flixton totalled 222 all out before Matthew ripped through the opposing line-up with 6-12 as Seamer were skittled for 81.
Lockton stayed top after edging out Kirkbymoorside by six runs – much to Moorsiders skipper Jamie Harper’s chagrin.
Adam Magson took 4-10 and Jamie Griffin 4-48 as Lockton were all out for 127.
Harper was then left unbeaten on 42 as Kirkby were all out for 121, losing their last four wickets cheaply when victory was in sight.
