Steeton enjoy a run spree
1:46pm Thursday 5th September 2013 in Sport
Steeton scored a season’s best 318-6 in a 102-run win at home to Collingham in Aire-Wharfe Division One.
Opener Andrew Foulds (29) was unable to score his third successive century but he did register a 100-run second-wicket partnership with John Akrigg (78).
Mark Taylor chipped in with 20 but Steeton were tottering at 144-5 before Chris Baines (47) was joined by Neil Spragg (93no).
They added 84 for the sixth wicket in rapid time before Jon Best (23no) provided a late cameo. Spragg was in majestic form, his 93 coming from just 47 deliveries with three sixes and eight fours.
Collingham made a decent start to their reply and were 154-3 after 20 overs, all three wickets falling to Stephen Pearson (3-49).
But the introduction of James Emmott (5-46) changed the course of the match as Collingham slumped to 216 all out in 33.1 overs.
Robbie Oldham (94) top scored in Ben Rhydding’s 211-9 in which Phil Leng and Richard Wear each picked up four wickets. Jason Wright (5-30) then took charge and Harden were bowled out for 119.
In Division Three, Jamie Hudson (65no) and Bernard Hughes (5-19) starred in Olicanian’s seven-wicket win over Silsden, who were bowled out for 105.
Like their first team, Steeton II also passed the 300-mark but they had to settle for five points at North Leeds.
Craig Walton (129 off 84 balls) hit a great century and shared a 233-run opening partnership with Matt Price (97) as Steeton reached 331-6.
In reply North Leeds held on for a point at 234-9, Adam Hardwick (3-51) being the visitors’ chief wicket-taker.
