THE weather had an impact on the battle at the top of Bradford Premier League Championship Division One as Wrenthorpe cut Undercliffe's lead to two points.

Undercliffe looked to be on course for another win when they made an imposing 302-4 declared against bottom team Yeadon.

They had their opponents struggling at 118-4 off 33 overs when play was abandoned, leaving them with a haul of 10 points when they were eyeing a maximum 20.

Openers Jack Holland (56) and Michael Kelsey (51) gave Undercliffe a good start and they pushed on after that. Khalid Usman (68no), Gulsheraz Ahmed (47) and Fahid Rehman (44) all made it a tough afternoon for the Yeadon bowlers.

Mohammad Naveed was unbeaten on 40 for Yeadon when play was brought to a close.

Wrenthorpe capitalised on Undercliffe's misfortune by recovering from a poor start to defeat Gomersal by 110 runs.

They were reduced to 27-3 before James Glynn (84no) and Luke Patel (78) revived their side with a fourth-wicket stand of 154, which enabled them to post 199-4.

Gomersal had no answer to the new-ball attack of Awais Ejaz (6-45) and Jonathan Rudge (4-44) as they were dismissed for 89.

Third-placed Morley's promotion hopes suffered a body blow as they went down to a 123-run defeat at Hartshead Moor.

The absence of experienced bowlers Nathan Bromby and Dave Nebard was keenly felt as Hartshead Moor made 231-8.

In-form overseas player Ali Shan led the way with 84, and was backed up by opener Nicky Ward (41) in a second-wicket partnership of 119.

Henry Rush was the best of the Morley bowlers with 3-45 and he also top scored with 34 as they were bowled out for 108.

Danny Squire (3-21) and Rauf Qayyum (3-31) did the damage.

There was a close finish at Hunslet Nelson, where Pudsey Congs squeezed home by five runs after defending a modest total of 123.

They were indebted to young bowlers Jonathan Donnelly (3-6) and spinner Sam Wisniewski (3-25) as they restricted Nelson to 118.

Mark Murphy was top scorer in the match with 35 for the home side, while left-arm spinner Danny Cross was their best bowler with 4-36.

Bankfoot skipper James Lee was in the wickets again as his side bowled out Batley for 122 to complete a 48-run win.

The former Yorkshire paceman took 5-27 as only Sufyan Patel (38) made an impression for Batley.

Bankfoot had made 170 as Mohammad Shahnawaz (4-43) and Tariq Hussain (3-40) toiled away for the losers.

Ossett looked to be on course for a victory that would have eased their relegation worries when rain led to the abandonment of their game at Baildon.

Ossett put themselves in a strong position by making 263-9 when they batted first.

James Van der Merwe led the way with 76 and was backed up by former Baildon skipper Ian Philliskirk (51), Matt Varley (39) and John Sadler (33).

Wily spinner Mushtaq Ahmed impressed with 6-54 for Baildon, who were struggling at 102-5 when play came to a premature end.

Mounam Ejaz (35) top-scored for Baildon.
