2:53pm Wednesday 21st August 2013 in Sport
A SPLENDID 91-run victory moved Sheriff Hutton up into second place in Hunters York & District Senior League division three as they benefitted from one of only two completed matches in the tier on Saturday.
Sheriff totalled 188-9 in their 45 overs, with Joel Wilford (44), Andy Frank (42 not out) and Eddie Hull (30) all scoring freely, Chris Hazzard taking 4-46.
In reply, Ripon were all out for 97, thanks to good bowling from Wilford (4-37) and Richard Ainley (4-12), who took four wickets apiece.
Dringhouses II had been second and looked to have the upper hand against leaders Duncombe Park when rain stopped play.
Although Dringhouses had been contained to 150, with Ali Holmes (3-31), Jonathan Leckenby (3-50) and James Skelton (3-40) all claiming a trio of victims, Park were struggling in reply as they had lost three wickets for 14 before the match was abandoned.
Chris Storey top-scored for Houses with 64, while Mick Kenyon (2-5) had caused Park trouble before the abandonment.
Pocklington would also have been disappointed that the weather prevented them pressing home their advantage against Hovingham.
Pock had made 222-4 thanks to Steve Houltham (63), Nick Readman (78) and Neal Jackson (35 not out), and had Hovingham struggling on 62-4, of which Josh Prest made 32, before the rain came down.
The match of the day involved Pickering II at Fenner II in division four, where the scores were tied.
Pickering scored 156-9, Rich Taylor (30) and Johnny Bayes (25) leading the way against R Barker (4-35).
Fenner equalled this tally for the loss of six wickets, I Pratt (74) leading the way as H Jackson took 4-56.
As a result, both teams have moved up a place in the table, with Pickering out of the relegation zone.
Leaders Patrington secured full points in a convincing defeat of Malton & Old Malton II.
Patrington reached 218-9 before bowling Malton out for just 112, Craig Foster taking 4-44. Oliver Gilbank with 4-38 and T Lindsley, with 30 runs, did well for Malt.
Dan Clipson starred with 5-35 for Sheriff Hutton Bridge II against Heworth II in division five to reduce the hosts to 141 all out. However, the reply could not get under way because of rain.
Stamford Bridge II’s match at Bolton Percy also fell to the weather. M Veysey had taken 3-31 as Percy ended on 133-8. Stamford were on 8-1 when the rain came.
Hovingham II’s division six game at Pocklington II seemed to be well-balanced when it was abandoned.
Pock had made 229-6, D Croft top-scoring with 63 as George Wain-wright took 3-52, and Hovingham were on 38-0 when rain ended play.
Sheriff Hutton II’s match at Tadcaster Magnet II was also abandoned, Magnet made 157-6, Nadeem Shefta not out on 62, before Sheriff stopped on 5-1.
