WRENTHORPE scored a dramatic one-wicket win off the final ball of their rain-reduced All Rounder Cricket Bradford Premier League Championship Division One match at Yeadon.

The victory came in a contest reduced to 20 overs per side, and enabled them to climb above Methley into second place.

That was because the game between leaders Scholes and Methley was abandoned after just 8.2 overs.

It means the title race is set for a dramatic finale with Wrenthorpe at home to Scholes in their final game.

Scholes have 322 points, Wrenthorpe 318 and Methley 315 in the tightest of battles.

Matthew Race was a key figure in Wrenthorpe's win.

He took 3-33 and followed up with a timely 29 as Wrenthorpe edged past Yeadon's 131-7.

Andrew Pickering (45) and Jake Wray (40) top-scored for Yeadon as Race and Jonathan Rudge (3-33) proved the best of the Wrenthorpe bowlers.

Yeadon, who are just five points above the relegation zone, pushed Wrenthorpe all the way.

Paul Machell took 3-19 and made the visitors battle hard for the win.

Bowling Old Lane's hopes of avoiding relegation suffered a setback when they went down by 27 runs against Birstall.

Craig Wood took 4-35 as Birstall successfully defended their 20-over score of 148-8.

Ayyaz Akram (43no) top scored in Old Lane's 121-7.

Birstall's top scorer was opener Ian Carradice with 32 as Arsalan Ijaz took 3-45.

Old Lane will be hoping that bottom team Birstall do them a favour next week as they play Yeadon in their final game.

Bankfoot had reached 20-0 at Baildon when play was washed out, while there was no action at all in Gomersal v Undercliffe and Morley v Ossett.

Hunslet Nelson boosted their chances of taking the second promotion place in Championship Division Two with a 59-run win over Hopton Mills in the only match to be completed.

Nelson made 155 in 35.1 overs, thanks to Andrew McIntosh (47) and Will Stiff (31).

Andy Grey (5-40) and Michael Carroll (4-41) took the bowling honours for Mills.

Glen Thompson (4-7) and Stiff (3-17) did sterling work for Nelson as they dismissed their opponents for 96, Mark Ashton top-scoring with 38.

The only other game to start was at Northowram Fields, who made 46-1 against Spen Victoria before the weather closed in.

There was no play at all in Keighley v Idle, Liversedge v Altofts, Brighouse v Carlton and Buttershaw St Paul's v Hartshead Moor.

Only one game started in the Conference Division, with East Ardsley making 9-0 off nine balls before play was washed out.
