Promotion race hots up after Baildon defeat
With second placed Yeadon beating Hartshead Moor by seven wickets and Morley beating Spen Victoria by six wickets only 19 points separate the top three clubs.
Left arm spinner Mushtaq Ahmed took 6-27 as Gomersal were bowled out for 175 with Greg Pickles top scoring with 42.
However, Gomersal hit back dramatically with their own left arm spinner Chris Rhodes taking 5-18 as Baildon were dismissed for a mere 90.
Yeadon off spinner Damon Gormley took 6-36 as Hartshead Moor made 165. Mick Baldwin (57) and Graham Hilton (51) both made half centuries, but there was no one to support them. Skipper James Todd then led Yeadon to victory with 92 supported by Tariq Mehboob on 44 not out. Overseas player Kashif Naveed produced a fine all round performance in Morley’s win over Spen. Naveed took 5-13 and off spinner David Nebard 3-13 as Spen were bowled out for 96. Naveed then scored 41 not out as Morley cruised to victory.
Brighouse beat Bowling Old Lane by 45 runs. Greg Osbourne, with 38 not out, and Zahir Hussain 35 helped them to reach 160-7. They then dismissed Old Lane for 115 with Will Smith taking 5-18 and Adil Ladak 3-35. Old Lane batsman Ayyaz Akram scored 54, but could find no one to support him.
Idle beat neighbours Windhill by five wickets. Sohail Hussain took 4-33 as Windhill were bowled out for 127. Amjit Bhogal made 42 as Idle knocked off the runs required for victory.
The match between Bankfoot and Great Horton didn’t start because Great Horton failed to have eight players at the ground 30 minutes after the scheduled starting time – brought forward from 1pm to noon for the September matches – so the match was abandoned. Bankfoot have been awarded 15 points but this is subject to ratification by the Management Board, who will decide what further action to take.
