OTLEY continue to dominate Aire-Wharfe League Division One, cruising to a ten-wicket win at Horsforth.

Oliver Hardaker (62) was top scorer in the home side’s 176, which included three run outs, before Otley openers James Pickering (68no) and Ben Morley (99no) knocked them off in 22.2 overs.

Burley remain the chief challengers, Dan Revis (41no) and Nicky Bulcock (48no) steering them past Guiseley’s 145 in which Jason Wright took 6-35.

And Rawdon are still in the hunt, Marcus Berryman hitting 75 and teaming up with Andrew Duckworth (41) and Ryan Gladwin (64) to post 293-9.

The Australian then took 4-60 as Bilton fell 104 runs short.

Ilkley dented Follifoot’s challenge.

Nick Cockroft led the way with 52 and Will Lennard took 4-42, with Henry Wilson weighing in with two run outs in an 83-run victory.

James Rosewarne (5-21) seemed to have put Pool on the way to victory when Adel were dismissed for 160, but the visitors’ batting came up 39 runs short.

Green Lane crashed to their second successive defeat and are out of the Division Three promotion spots.

Joe Lawrence fell one run short of his century as Bolton Villas set a target of 265-9 and, with Junaid Jamshed (5-57) doing the damage, Lane were bowled out for 204, Michael Abbott top-scoring with a half-century.

Leaders New Rover comfortably maintained their unbeaten record against Alwoodley, and Harden moved up to second place with a win over Bardsey.

Dan Giblin (52) was the main contributor in Harden’s 264-9, and three wickets each from Matthew Hogg and Scott Hartley helped restrict promotion hopefuls Bardsey to 228.

Gary Owens had a day to remember, top scoring with 44 and then taking 8-31 as Skipton crushed Old Leodiensians.

Mohammed Shoaib took 6-62 and top-scored with 23 but found little support as Thackley went down by 60 runs at Shadwell, while Menston had a miserable afternoon at St Chad’s, being beaten by 119 runs.

Steeton beat third-placed Colton by nine wickets to climb out of the Division Two relegation zone as the season reached its halfway point.

The bowling of Stephen Pearson (5-34) and Aatif Modak (3-50) saw the visitors dismissed for 200 before William Forster (102no) and Freddie Pearson (67no) eased Steeton home with eight overs to spare.

It took leaders Tong Park Esholt even less time to pass second-placed Addingham’s 165, which included 61 from Ben Brearley.

Waleed Akhtar (35) and Fawad Maqsood (35) set the platform, and Christopher Oliver (42no) and Muhammad Khan (39no) finished the job early.

That allowed Collingham to move into second place after they beat Kirkstall, while Hall Park climbed to third with a comfortable win at bottom club Calverley.

Four wickets each from Mark McEneaney and Sam Wilkinson dismissed the home side for 116 before skipper Gary Walton clinched the seven-wicket win with 45 not out.

Ben Rhydding raced to 279-5 with contributions from Benjamin Steyn (57), Forrest Hamilton (64), Sam Housam (66) and Nick Smith (48), and even though Leeds Modernians put up a gutsy reply, they fell 15 runs short, with Smith picking up 5-80.

Despite a 5-52 spell from Sajjad Ijaz, Saltaire recovered from 54-6 to post 200, thanks to 51 from No7 Mussawar Shah and 48 from No 10 Aftab Khan.

Olicanian had 62 overs to get the runs, but with Adeel Ashraf (4-35) and Shah (3-35) pegging away, they were dismissed for 186.
