Whitby enjoyed a winning draw but couldn't get the crucial tenth wicket at hosts Blackhall, on Saturday.

Asked to bat first, Will Donald's men made 203/7 from their 50 overs with Joe Padmore and Theo Smith both making 44. Finlay Morris took 5/25 with Donald himself taking 3/23 and Corey Hart also picking up a wicket as the County Durham side limped 128/9 but downpours meant they had just 43 overs to survive. 

Bridlington weren't able to reach their target in another rain-hit fixture. The York Senior Division Two leaders were held to a losing draw in a reduced-over contest at Pocklington. After losing the toss, Brid's opponents amassed 158 all out from just short of 38 overs. Steve Janney took 5/36 and Simon Leeson 3/35 in bowler-friendly conditions. However, the visitors struggled in reply with Janny's 31 the highlight as they stumbled to 137/8 from 32 overs.
