Warwick's 900th club wicket can't help Ravenscar past Wykeham B
Ravenscar veteran Will Warwick wrapped up his 900th club wicket as he took 5-24, including a hat-trick, in his side's defeat against Wykeham B in Division C.
Warwick’s superb spell helped skittle Wykeham for just 123, but George Shannon then took 3-12 as Ravenscar fell away to a miserly 67-8.
Flixton B went level on points at the top of the table after they hammered Forge Valley B by 10 wickets.
Valley posted 151-2 as Tom Varey (77no) and John Flinton (42no) steered their side to a respectable total.
That proved to be below-par as Elliot Hatton (87no) and Finlay Ward (52no) safely steered Flixton to their target without any loss.
Leaders Staxton B were stunned by eighth-placed Scalby B.
Skipper Chris Malthouse hit 43 and Tim Barton 25 as Scalby posted 148-3, which proved more than enough as Staxton replied with 102-5, Dave Aldcroft hitting 30.

Ashley Fothersgill smashed 76 in Ebberston B’s win against rock-bottom Muston.
Fothersgill’s knock was ably supported by 62 from Tom Holmes as Ebberston posted 166-5 before George Hardie’s 4-26 helped ensure Muston were all out for just 84 in reply.
Aaron Howard hammered an unbeaten century but that wasn’t enough for Division A leaders Filey to beat Ganton, the table-toppers falling agonisingly one run short of victory.
James Pick hit 75 and Alastair Limb 35 not out in Ganton’s 154-3, Howard then smacking 100 not out in Filey’s reply, with the hosts falling desperately short on 153-4.
The chasing pack all took full advantage of Filey’s slip-up.
Second-placed Seamer beat Wykeham by 64 runs to close the gap to just two points.
Aussie Mitch Fisher (37) and Josh Broadhead (35) steered Seamer to 169-7 before pace bowler Sam Park claimed 4-18 as Wykeham slipped to 105 all out.
Heslerton remain in third spot and firmly in the title hunt after beating Ebberston by eight wickets.
Only Tom Brickman got going with the bat for Ebberston, top-scoring with 28 in their 101-6.
Heslerton made light work of their chase, Sam Triffitt hitting 50 not out and Kristian Wilkinson 29 not out as they cruised to 102-2.
