THERE was a tense finish up at Hainworth in the second round of the Cowling Cup.

Ingrow batted first and reached 136-6 in their allotted 20 overs with Ben Weatherill (48 not out) and Ben Pursey (43no) leading the way as Steve Broughton claimed 2-12.

Visitors Bingley Congs II were always in the hunt and closed one run short on 135-9. Dave Hemsley (29) and Josh Zenner (22) were the main contributors as Ryan Higgs took 3-17.

Down at Sandylands, Skipton CI II were restricted to 65 all out by Bingley Congs III.

Tariq Ghani and extras both contributed 17 as Rob Stow claimed figures of 4-10 off his overs to take the bowling honours.

A similar bowling performance from Dean Pompey kept Bingley Congs in check as they recovered from 11-5 to reach 57-6 at the close of the innings with Bill Marshall (20no) and Jack Wheeler (14) trying their best to reach their target.

Joe Allatt (51) and u15 Harvey Matthews (33) propelled Hepworth & Idle II to 125-6 up at Golden View.

Dave Collins (2-20) was the best bowler. Long Lee II struggled to get near enough for victory and they closed on 105-8 with Ben Stowell (27) and Phil Atkinson (21) being the main contributors as three bowlers took two wickets each.

At Shires Lane, Wilsden II won the toss and elected to bat.

They stumbled to 48 all out in 18 overs with Tanveer Hussain (11) being the only batter in double figures.

Jack Kennedy (3-6) Paul Wormald (2-3) and Stephen Speak (2-15) did the damage with the ball.

Under-15s player George Arkwright (19no) and Dominic Kay (17no) took Embsay II into round three by nine wickets. Bradley had a bye.

Skipton CI and Wilsden; Gargrave II and Oakworth II and Riddlesden and Haworth II are scheduled to play this Sunday.

Meanwhile, Crossflatts entertained Houghton Main at Rhysworth Park in the third round of the Village Cup.

Crossflatts restricted Houghton to 144 with some tidy bowling and excellent fielding.

Sadly Crossflatts fell 40 runs short of the target, much to the dismay of quite a large crowd that was watching.

Sadly, there was no play in any of the scheduled games in Mewies Solicitors Craven and District League on Saturday due to the wet weather.
