HULL Zingari stretched their lead at the top of Hunters York & District Senior League division one to 58 points after they won for the fifth time in six weeks.

Visitors Hornsea were bowled out for 153 with Matthew Bunn (3-30) and Simon Powdrell (3-6) taking three wickets a piece.

Jack Storey made more than that on his own when the sides met back in May, scoring 163 not out, and again he tormented the opposition bowlers with an unbeaten 86 as the hosts won by eight wickets, Guy Martinson (56) also made a half-century.

Sewerby made home advantage pay, beating Knaresborough by five wickets, and they now trail their promotion rivals by a single point.

Chris Mann took 5-45 and Adrian Long 3-35 as the visitors – having made the long journey to the coast – were bowled out for 174 which included Sam Davies' second 50 in the space of three weeks.

He also went on to take three wickets but it proved to be in vain thanks to runs from both Scott Cooper (69) and Nick Gibson (35).

Two sides in mid-table fought out a close finish at St George’s Road where Dringhouses got to within nine runs of Harrogate’s total but finished with their last wicket pair at the crease.

Michael Kenyon took 6-46 and George Wilson 3-45 as the hosts were bowled out for 201 with Ashley Griffin the top scorer on 40.

Cameron O'Donnell (3-37) and Ali Hassan-Ahmed (3-33) each took three wickets when the visitors batted, and it was left to Tom Storr (29no) to guide the visitors to a share of the points.

There was another gripping climax in the match between Hull and Folkton & Flixton – the visitors coming out on top by seven wickets but with just four balls to spare.

Fergus Wilkinson top scored for Hull with an unbeaten 79 and, with further contributions from Tom Jennings (47) and Joe Hewitt (46), they were able to reach 243-4.

Thankfully for the visitors, both Richard Malthouse (110no) with his second ton of the season and Tom Norman (73) with his second half-century in as many weeks were on hand to see their side home.

Beverley Town ended a run of three losses with a comprehensive eight-wicket victory over a visiting Heworth side who have now not won in their last five.

Robert Fish struck an unbeaten 81 for the hosts and Will Harrison made 67 in a total of 190-2, that in reply to the visitors' 185-7 in which Joel Johnson top scored with 38 and Joey Franklin took 3-60.

The competition's bottom side Selby won for just the second time this season when they beat visitors Ripon by three wickets in a tense low-scoring encounter.

Lee Wild took five wickets and Chris James three as the visitors were bowled out for 119, most of which came from the bat of Rob Taylor (47).

Matthew Hoyle matched Taylor’s effort for the home side who, despite four wickets from Ben Crewe, secured a much needed win if they are to retain any chance of avoiding relegation.
