The pick of the Sewerby bowlers were Steve Janney (4-40) and Ben Traves (3-43).

Sam Wragg continued his fine form since stepping up the firsts, hitting 58, while Matty Rennoldson added 28, but keen bowling from Gavin Wilkinson (3-50) and Fergus Wilkinson (3-29) saw Sewerby dismissed for 170 from 42.3 overs.

The Flixton v Ripon Division One game and the Scarborough 2nds v Yapham match in Division Two Ebor were both rained off.
