Senior Cricket League: Beverley beat deluge

Gazette & Herald: Senior Cricket League: Beverley beat deluge Senior Cricket League: Beverley beat deluge

WET weather wiped out the majority of the fixtures in the Hunters York & District Senior Cricket League.

Widespread overnight rain led to several early call-offs and a series of heavy showers caused the abandonment of games that got under way.

The weather favoured teams to the east of the league, with Beverley recording the only win in the premier division when they beat Hull Zingari by 77 runs.

Faisal Abid made 34, James Fisher 50 and Alan Acklam an undefeated 30 in Beverley’s total of 171-8. The Hull side were then rolled over for 94, of which a remarkable 42 came from extras. G Brumfield’s 5-13 was the cutting edge, while Matt Mudd soundly supported with 3-33 in a 77-run win.

Bowlers were in command at Clifton Alliance, where Sheriff Hutton Bridge were dismissed for 115. Skipper Adam Fisher was the pick of the batting with 27, but the first-half honours were claimed by John Thornton, with 3-34, and Rich Carroll, who took 4-41.

After tea, Alliance found themselves struggling as Eddie Barnes claimed two victims and they had lost three wickets for only 25 runs when yet another heavy shower ended play.

At Easingwold, the weather probably saved York from defeat as both sides took ten points.

Kyle Waite was the home star in making 59, while Josh Greenlay added 20 in a total of 148-6 as Matt Hodsdon claimed 3-40. When York batted, Rob Flack made 27 and Sam Beales 22, but they were struggling at 98-6 when the game ended. Steve Piercy (3-22) and A Metcalfe (2-11) made serious inroads.

Simon Leeson hit 108 to help Bridlington make 205-8 and gain the better of a draw with Pickering in division one. John Major added 31 as Mark Shepherd took 4-50 and Isaac Christopher 3-28.

Shepherd then followed with 29 and T Sigsworth 37. Casey Rudd grabbed 4-64 to put Brid in control, but Colin Frank hit 58 not out and Christopher 47 not out to take the Pikes to an 18-point draw at 187-4.

Folkton & Flixton took 26 points from an advantage draw with Driffield Town. Nick Zakrewski top-scored with 74 in a total of 198 for Flixton. Jamie Hopper took 5-64 and Nick Johnson 3-38.

In reply, Driffield held on at 132-9.
