Harden edge closer to drop
1:30pm Thursday 22nd August 2013 in Sport
Otley made short work of Harden, whose relegation from Division One was all but sealed when they were dismissed for 100 by Ricky Halloran (4-37) and John Brough (3-10).
Josh Atkinson (51no) and Stewart Smith (30no) saw Otley home after Richard Wear had grabbed a couple of early wickets.
Steeton’s top-flight match at home to Bilton was rained off with the visitors having posted 195-5.
Division Three side Silsden were quite relieved to see the rain after a 5-7 spell from Woodhouse’s Asim Allam dismissed them for 101, Simon Cox top-scoring with 36. Wood-house smashed 19 off the first two overs of their innings but then the game was called off.
The only other first-team game to beat the rain was in Division Two, where Thackley beat Colton.
Bradley Goodaire smashed an unbeaten 45 in 26 balls to put Thackley back in the hunt for promotion.
Their deadly attack of Mahir Ali and Nasser Jamal set up the win by dismissing Colton for 124 in 36.5 overs. Ali finished with 4-41 while Jamal’s 3-35 took him to 52 for the season.
Majid Khan (28) gave Thackley a solid start before Goodaire blasted nine fours and a six as he and Luke Holroyd clinched victory.
Steeton II came agonisingly close to victory at Bilton II.
Having restricted the hosts to 173-8 – James Yeadon taking 3-28 – they only had 26 overs to chase down the runs due to rain.
Some big-hitting saw them fall just short on 172-5 thanks to M Price (73no) and David Robinson (42) but the interruption meant they had to settle for one point.
Otley II (137-7) versus Harden II (167-7) was also rained off.
Foster’s Halifax League Oxenhope were in-debted to Josh Tetley, who scored a dogged 53 not out to ensure the home side were not dismissed for a lower total that Outlane could have overhauled before the rain intervened.
Blagborough (4-27) and Shocat (3-39) ripped out the top order and, at 46-7, Oxenhope were in big trouble.
But Tetley’s knock, along with the tail wagging, saw them get to 130-9 before the rain intervened and ended any further possibility of play.
Oxenhope II’s game at Wibsey Park Chapel II was called off with the hosts struggling on 64-6.
