BRAD SCOTT smashed 91 as Alne maintained their
title challenge with a 29-run
victory over Goldsborough, writes JAMES GRAYSON.

Under-18 player Louis Cox chipped in with 36 to help take Alne to 218-6.

In response, Jake Agar (35) and Damon Ive (36) hit the biggest contributions for bottom-placed Goldsborough, but their team-mates failed to match their efforts and they fell at 189-9.

Killinghall gained a crucial victory in their battle to beat the drop, winning by three runs against Pannal.

Pannal toiled to 113 all out with notable hits coming from James Rawlings (46) and Dave Wood (42).

Killinghall responded and courtesy of the low-scoring efforts of Adam Porter (20), Simon Williams (21), Tony Whittaker (15) and Scott
Copley (22), 116-7 was reached to earn victory.

Bishop Thornton’s title
aspirations were dealt a huge blow after they lost by five runs to Burton Leonard (202-5).

Will Wray top-scored with 71 for Thornton, with Josh Chandler (42) and
Andrew Cullen (33) also
hitting notable contributions as they recorded 197-7.

In reply, Liam Ford got
Leonard off to a great start with an impressive 53, and it was followed up by the efforts of John Moorhouse (48) and James Townsend (41) as
Burton edged the win.

Elsewhere, Spofforth moved away from the
relegation zone following a three-wicket victory over Ouseburn (88-9).

Tom Clark hit 23 as Spofforth recorded 89-7 to take maximum points.
