Pryce then took 3-65 as Snainton were dismissed for 179 despite fine efforts from Leigh Watson (46), Matt Davies (39) and Mike Kipling (31).

Luke Spenceley's unbeaten 100 from just 63 balls eased Mulgrave 2nds to a six-wicket home win against Muston.

Pickering 3rds edged a four-wicket in a game dominated by bowlers at Ebberston 2nds.

George Hodgson claimed a superb haul of 5-27 and veteran spinner Tony Evans 4-11 as the Pikes skittled Ebberston for just 45, Paul Lockey top-scoring with 18.

George Baldwin's 12 proved vital in reply as his side crept home for the loss of six wickets mainly due to an outstanding spell of spin bowling from George Hardie (5-20).

Sewerby 2nds won by three wickets at home to Wykeham 2nds.

Pete Shepherdson hit 43 for the visitors while his brother Andy added 33 as they posted 150-9, P Davies taking 3-26 and Ash Porter 4-26.

Tom Pratt hammered 64, David Thomas 37 and Andrew Spenceley 35 as Scarborough posted 195-5, but veterans Pooley (100) and Mick Blyth (42) made sure of another straightforward win for the Clarence Drive team.

Filey's title push was helped by a shock loss for second-placed Wold Newton 2nds at home to a fast-improving Scarborough Rugby Club.
