ARE Haworth running into form at just the right time to pick up some silverware?

The West Lane club have won their last eight completed league matches in the Craven League Division One to climb to third in the table, just four points behind leaders Cowling, and they are also through to the semi-finals of the Wynn Cup.

Haworth won the toss in their quarter-final at Hepworth & Idle and decided to take first knock, making 215-2 off their 40 overs.

James Roper batted throughout the innings for his 102 not out, hitting nine fours and three sixes in a 115-ball stay.

He was part of an unbroken 154 partnership for the third with under-15 Jacob Stephens. The teenager scored 74 not out off 84 deliveries, including 10 fours.

Hepworth & Idle made an awful start in reply, being reduced to 18-4, before gaining respectability at 168 thanks to Chris Hawksworth (31), Simon Raistrick (69) and wicket-keeper Jack Bedford (26).

Raistrick put on 66 for the fifth wicket with Hawksworth and 59 for the sixth with Bedford.

Jamie Rowell (4-26) and Tom Rowell (3-36) cashed in with the ball for Haworth, who have not lost in the league since Cowling beat them on May 1.

They face Oakworth at home in the semi-finals on Sunday, July 25.

Oakworth won a low-scoring match at home to Bingley Congs in their quarter-final.

Sent in, Congs could only score 62, with Neil Copping (20) and Jamie Teale (11) the only players to reach double figures as Tom Fothergill (5-11) and James Powell (3-15) caused havoc.

Oakworth were 35-4 in reply, as Copping (3-12) and Harry Greenhalgh (2-12) made life difficult, but Jake Keslinke (17no) steadied the ship, while Jordan Powell (19) took his usual aggressive approach as the hosts won by five wickets.

Barrowford won the other quarter-final played by two wickets against Embsay (168-8 against 167).

They will be away on July 25 to the winners of the delayed quarter-final between Haworth Road Meths and Silsden, which takes place on Sunday at Baildon Bottom.
