Senior Cricket League: Stamford Bridge beat washout
9:40am Wednesday 13th June 2012 in Sport
THE wet weather wiped out the majority of games in the Hunters York & District Senior League.
The programme was hit for the fourth time in eight weeks and a total of 133 games have now either been called off before a ball was bowled or abandoned mid-match.
One of the few games to reach a conclusion saw premier division basement side Stamford Bridge break their duck at the eighth attempt when they defeated Selby by six wickets to move up to seventh place.
Steve Sergeant (6-54) and Dave Chaplin (3-22) reduced Selby to 18-6 before Tom Collins made 45 to lift them to 104 all out.
Stamford’s successful reply was fronted by captain Matt Beckett (48).
Sheriff Hutton Bridge were on the wrong end of a resurgence by Dunnington’s Collis King. After making only 89 runs in five visits to the crease, he raced to 83 in 20 overs. Having added 133 with Paul Miles (72no), he was trapped lbw by Jamie Hopper. Lightning and heavy rain saw the game called off.
Rain denied Pickering a shot at victory over visitors Hull Zingari in division one. Zingari were tumbled out for 119 in the 34th over, with Lorcan Barker claiming 6-43 in 10 overs. Dave Greenlay, sent down 17 overs to earn 2-44 and take his seasonal count to 28. Pickering’s reply lasted only two overs.
Driffield bowler Jamie Nesfield claimed 6-25 as Folkton & Flixton were dismissed for 110. S Stocks (28) top-scored with the bat. Only seven overs were possible after tea.
Matt Yates and Tony Linsley put Malton & Old Malton in command at home to Hull II in division two.
Yates captured 5-20 in 14 overs and Linsley’s 4-14 came from only six overs as the visitors were bowled out for 108. Malton’s reply was halted after 13 overs at 37-1.
Pickering II’s division four game at Hull Zingari II failed to continue after the tea interval, denying Zingari the chance to chase down Pickering’s 170-6. Mark Aconley made 49 and B Lealman hit 46 for the Pikes.
In division five, Stamford Bridge II reduced Selby II to 24-4 before the rain came.
In division seven, there was an advantage draw for Sheriff Hutton against leaders Carlton Towers.
V Jayagopal made 37 in Sheriff's 178-8 and Carlton were then pegged to 127-8 as M Bradley returned 3-24.
Meanwhile, premier division high-riders Sheriff Hutton Bridge were dumped out of the Premier Cup at home by third-bottom Sessay.
The visitors posted an impressive 256-8 in last week’s tie, with Jamie Hopper taking 3-65. Bridge finished with 122-8, of which Mark Fisher made 54 and Adam Fisher 38.
