Holders Burley triumph in close encounter
9:18am Thursday 24th May 2012 in Sport
Waddilove Cup holders Burley survived a tense finish against Guiseley to clinch their place in the second round.
David Brook (60) gave Burley a good start but then they slumped from 48-1 to 115-7 on the way to being bowled out for 153, with Dave Pennett (4-44) and Abid Awan (3-16) doing most of the damage.
Pennett hit a half-century as Guiseley reached 140-7, but they then lost two quick wickets and with Robert Atkinson having to leave early for family reasons, they were left with no No11 and fell five short of victory.
There was an intriguing tie between Steeton and Rawdon, who passed on the promotion-relegation stairs last season and have started the campaign heading their divisions.
Neil Spragg (87) and David Wildsmith (55) shared their second century stand of the weekend as Steeton reached 200-5.
Spragg (4-31) and Paul Hardwick (3-33) keept things tight and Rawdon were dismissed for 184 despite the efforts of Joe Loohram (56) and Andrew Doidge (41).
Phil Atkinson (96no) and Michael Slater (4-41) were the heroes as Green Lane comfortably won what might have been a tricky tie at Bardsey.
A century from Alex Baily and 5-19 spell from Nick Cockcroft saw Ilkley knock out Woodhouse.
Ben Rhydding raced to 285-3 thanks to an unbeaten 104 from Robbie Oldham, backed up by Lewis Bolton (49), Robbie Miller (54) and Jason Wright (66no) as they eased home at New Rover, and half centuries from Scott Driscoll and Ben Waller were the backbone of Calverley’s win over Horsforth.
Chasing Alwoodley’s 175-7, Silsden clinched a seven-wicket win thanks to Simon Cox (79no) and Majid Inayat (47).
Stewart Smith (86no) and Andrew Ross (70no) took Otley to 235-4 but it wasn’t quite enough to beat in-form Kirkstall, who won by six wickets.
Addingham found the gap in class too great to overcome against Collingham for whom Brian Leigh hit 164 Hamish Skelt scored 39 in Olicanian’s 153-5 but for the second day running they came out second best against North Leeds, while a battling 68 from Gareth Lee couldn’t save Menston against Adel, and Skipton went down by five wickets to Follifoot.
