Dales Council's top three beat weather and win

First published in Sport

DESPITE another rain-affected Saturday it was a case of as you were at the top of the Dales Councils Division A.

The three leading contenders – Halifax Direct, New Wortley and Leeds Sikh – all managed to play and win.

Leaders Halifax Direct (125-7) travelled to Dewsbury and returned home with a three-wicket success over Savile Stars (120).

They now have a four-point lead over second-placed New Wortley who recorded a four-wicket success at Pudsey Congs after bowling out their opponents for 94.

Leeds Sikh warmed up for their Pool Paper Mills Cup final appearance with a three-wicket win at home to Adel who were dismissed for 106, with the wily Hari Seehra taking 7-34.

Shipley Providence pushed their near neighbours Baildon deeper into relegation trouble with a six-wicket away win after dismissing them for 103.

Cookridge reached 220-4 in their 30 overs with Dom Wyatt hitting 102, Waqas Ali (44no) and Neil Bonnington (43) piling up the runs.

Visitors Tong Park Esholt gave it a real go as they chased the stiff target.

Matthew Skelton cracked 70 off just 36 balls and David Holmes hit 51 but they just came up short at 205-6.

Only two matches managed to beat the weather in Division B with leaders Bradford Moor and second-placed Thornbury playing reduced overs games.

Bradford Moor wracked up 256-9 in 35 overs against Undercliffe who could only make 160-7 in reply with Tom Hall getting 51.

Visitors Thornbury made 150-8 at Drighlington Whitehall, who replied with 134-6 to lose by just 16 runs.

Division C leaders Crompark recorded a narrow two-wicket win over Pudsey St Lawrence to extended their lead to 21 points over Morley.

Hasan Malik (66no) and Ali Asghar (46) guided them home after Harry Allman (5-36) had kept St Lawrence in check.
