Bowlers dominated in the five games to survive the wet weather in the Derwent Valley Cricket League on Saturday.

Marcus Edwards and A Paikwad took 4-10 and 4-7 respectively as Hospitals/Rugby Club skittled visitors Sewerby 3rds in division A for only 19 runs.

The hosts knocked off the required runs for the loss of just one wicket.

Kirkbymoorside eased to as 77-run home win against Filey 2nds, with Adam Magons on superb all-round form.

Magson and Graham Jemison struck 32 apiece for the Moorsiders, Martin Thompson having hit 25 earlier as the hosts posted 152-8.

Veteran Kev Chapman scooped 3-27 for Filey while Jamie Gilbank took 4-22 for the visitors.

Magson capped a great day with match-winning figures of 4-9, Jamie Harper claiming 3-13 as Filey slumped to 75 all out.

Sherburn 2nds were dismissed for 96 at home to Nawton Grange 2nds but still ended up winning by 36 runs.

Dan Stocks fell short of his half-century by three runs, but it proved to be only knock of note for the hosts, George Bentley and Darren Wood snapping up four wickets apiece for Grange.

Jamie Thompson took 5-5 and Brian Garbutt 3-7 as Sherburn skittled the visitors for only 60 runs.

Veteran all-rounders Pete Hill and John Sowden shone with bat and ball as Flixton 3rds won by 32 runs at Wold Newton 2nds.

Hill and Sowden both struck 43 as Flixton reached 121-8, Tim Lazenby bagging 4-30 for the hosts.

Will Gray, 21, was the only home batsman to shine as his side slumped to 89 all out, Hill taking 4-12 and Sowden 3-17.

The only game in division B to survive saw Snainton show their experience with a swift 10-wicket win at home to Ravenscar 2nds.

Leigh Watson and Michael Eyre were the only bowlers required by the hosts, taking five wickets apiece in their respective nine-overspells to dismiss Ravenscar for 30 runs.

Only a handful of overs were needed for the home side to coast to victory.
