MALTON & Old Malton II had to settle for a tie in a dramatic finish to their HPH York Vale League division four match.

After bowling nine-men Selby II out for 134, Malt’s reply was led by the in-form Thiagu and opener John Sims (31).

But when Sims was bowled, it triggered a dramatic Malt collapse.

It all boiled down to the last over but number 10 batsman Richard Szymczak was run out for a duck and Thiagu (57) suffered the same fate from the final delivery of the game.

Earlier Thiagu had taken 4-20 and Wayne Cullen 3-24 in Selby’s rain-interrupted innings.

Westow’s recent decent run came to an end when their young side lost to South Cave & Brantingham in division two.

Featuring nine players aged under 21, Westow posted 167 despite being a man light.

Mark Earle, seeking his fourth successive century, had reached 46 when he was caught in the deep.

However, Ali Fothergill pushed the score on with an unbeaten 60, which included four sixes and eight boundaries.

Earle then took 3-31 with the ball, supported by Will Hughes’ 2-39, but Cave overhauled the Westow total for the loss of six wickets.

Malton & Old Malton had no game and Stamford Bridge conceded their fixture to Ovington III in division four.
