STEETON continued to ride the crest of the wave, as after winning the coin toss to determine their rain-affected Waddilove Cup quarter-final against Saltaire last weekend, they followed that with a league win at the leaders.

They visited Adel on Saturday in Division Two of the Aire-Wharfe League, and with opener Matthew Nutter top-scoring with 63, they were able to post 229 all out.

But they left plenty of runs behind, having been 144-1 at one point.

It did not matter in the end, as a fine bowling performance, led by Stephen Pearson’s 4-58, ensured Adel fell short, only making 216-9 from their 50 overs.

Adel stay top, but Steeton are now just 17 points behind them in third.

Harden are looking to bounce back into Division Two at the first attempt and while they remain second and in a promotion spot, four teams are now within 10 points of them after a nightmare eight-wicket defeat to Menston.

Batting first, Harden could only post 191-8, led by a determined 57 not out from Tom Stordy.

But Menston were in cruise control throughout their chase, and breezed home with nearly nine overs to spare.
