Beverley Town CC 1st XI gained their second draw of the season at Dunnington on Saturday.
The York side, thanks in the main to an unbeaten 90 from J Bolam, reached 210-9 from their overs. Pick of the Beverley bowling was Alex Morrell, who picked up 4-36.
With such a big total to chase it was always going to be tough for Beverley, but they stuck to their task well.
Ian Gillyon hit a fine 51 and Johnathon Fisher 36, but in the face of some strong bowling Beverley were left to hang on and closed on 192-8.
The draw earned Beverley 18 points and lifted them off the bottom of the table, leapfrogging East Riding rivals Fenner, who are finding it tough going in their first season in the top flight of the York and District Senior League.
