Grindale won the battle of the top two at Sewerby and made it seven wins in a row.

The hosts were skittled for 53, with Harry Gunning’s 26 a crucial part of the total. Jackson helped himself to 3-14 and watched Mark Tennant hit 23 not out in an eight-wicket win. Calvin Roche took both Grindale wickets to fall.

Wold Newton just did enough to hold off Wetwang in a close match. Oli West made 58 and Matthew Southwell 25 as Wold reached 116/4. Southwell then had four victims to slow down Wetwang’s response, and even though Thompson made 45, Vidler 24 and Webb 25 not out, they ended 10 runs short.

There were decent efforts by James Baker (49 not out) and Paul Cook (39) but Frod were left well adrift on 116/3.

Grindale drafted in Robinson for their Hospital Cup quarter final against Bewholme, Atwick and Brandesburton and it paid dividends. He hit 72 not out in a total of 180/3 and Pick was then the pick of the Grindale bowlers with 3-35 as Bewholme lost by 49 runs. Walker’s unbeaten 41 was the top score.

Wold Newton’s 152/2 looked a good total at Driffield. Matthew Southwell being responsible for almost half the runs and carrying his bat, but Driffield got home with six wickets to spare. Greveson made 38 and Walker 33 in the reply and they will now face North Dalton who eased past Flamborough.

Boro limped to 90/6 from 20 overs with no batsman getting past 20. Addy made 44 and Sinclair 25 for Dalton, who only needed 15 overs to record a seven-wicket win.
