Batsman Shaun Wood top-scored for Seamer with 53, Will Curtis and John Lumley snapping up three wickets each for unbeaten Habton.

Lockton 2nds dug deep for a five-run win at home to Flixton 3rds.

Rory Lancaster’s 47 led the hosts to 156-6, with tidy knocks of 27 from John Moxon and 25 by Nick Bell boosting the Lockton total, Jack Walmsley the pick of the Flixton attack with 4-33.

Andy Ryan, 51, and John Sowden, 33, looked to be setting the visitors up for a successful run-chase, but top bowling from Will Lancaster helped dismiss Flixton for 151.

Third-placed Sewerby 3rds remain in touch with Lockton though, as they eased to a 149-run triumph at lowly Bridlington 3rds, who look doomed for relegation alongside Snainton 2nds.

Paul Dandy, 60, Jason Faulkner, 56, and Sam Coultas, 36, guided the visitors to 248-9 in spite of top bowling from Frankie Reffold, 3-33.

John Searby and James Faulkner snapped up three wickets apiece as Brid were shot out for 99 runs.

Basement team Snainton 2nds won by 20 runs at home to Kirkbymoorside 2nds, but they are still 42 points adrift of safety.

Mike Chapman’s 69 and an inspired 84 from Al Huby steered the hosts 211-3, Adam Magson taking 3-38.

Magson then scored 39 with the bat, while Phil Butler smashed 69 as the Moorsiders looked to overhaul Snainton’s total, but top bowling from Ryan Bellerby, 4-45, made sure Kirkby were pegged back to 191-6.
