Johnson (2-49) ended the partnership when he had Morrison (15) caught in the slips by Matt Hoyle but Riley continued to bat well and he added 48 for the fourth wicket with Rowan Smith who hit a brisk 33 before being bowled by Jack Huddlestone. Lee Wild again produced a very tight 13 over spell to slow down the run rate and he finished with 1-29 as Selby gradually got on top. Charlie Baird also bowled well to take a wicket and Glen Crouch joined the attack to eventually trap Riley leg before for 62. Late runs were added by James Walsh (25) but Crouch had him caught by Johnson and he mopped up the tail to finish with 4-28 as Thorp Arch were bowled out for 185 in the 42nd over.

In the next over Oliver Riley dismissed Bowden for a rapid 41, which included 3 fours and 5 sixes, but Rob Scarr kept the runs flowing. Scarr and Charlie Baird added 34 for the third wicket before two quick wickets for Sutton (4-62) saw Selby slip to 103-4 but Scarr kept the innings on track and a 52 run partnership for the fifth wicket with Harry Huddlestone (18) kept the visitors in control. Riley eventually had Scarr caught by Ed McNicholas for a stylish 62, which included 8 fours and 2 sixes, but Harvey Johnson hit a quick 14 before Oliver Walsh had him caught by Dale Gibson. Lee Wild hit the winning runs in just the 26th over and the victory lifts Selby up to fifth in the table.
