WRENTHORPE had their prolific opening bowlers Jonathan Rudge and Awais Ejaz to thank as they secured a 52-run win at Batley in All Rounder Cricket Bradford Premier League Championship Division One.

Rudge took his tally of wickets for the season to 69 with an impressive 6-14, while Ejaz claimed 4-33 to take his total to 62.

The new-ball pair bowled out Batley for just 57, with only Roheil Hussain (30) offering any resistance as Wrenthorpe defended their score of 109.

Wicketkeeper Sam Storr (33) and Rudge (31) were the top scorers as Tariq Hussain (5-12) and Huzaifah Patel (3-34) posed problems.

Wrenthorpe were prevented from gaining any batting points so their lead is now 16 points over Undercliffe, who didn't have a fixture and have played a game less.

Spinners Sanga Cooray (5-44) and David Nebard (4-25) bowled third-placed Morley to a 41-run win at Pudsey Congs.

The home side were given a good start in their pursuit of Morley's 178-6 by openers James Ford (68) and Mubtada Akhtar (39), but once they were parted the innings petered out as Congs were dismissed for 137.

The Morley innings was dominated by a third-wicket stand of 109 between in-form Henry Rush (68) and former Congs player Richard Jubb (40).

Hunslet Nelson seized their chance to climb out of the relegation positions with a 30-run win over Gomersal.

Once again, the star turn was a spinner, this time left-armer Danny Cross (6-21).

Cross was backed up by skipper Will Stiff (3-19) as Gomersal faded away to be bowled out for 132 once Jonathan Boynton (39) and skipper Graham Hilton (31) departed.

Patrick Hinchliffe (31) top scored in Hunslet Nelson's 153, while three Gomersal bowlers took three wickets each – Joe Duffy (3-22), Chris Rhodes (3-39) and James Russell (3-46).

The win takes Nelson 12 points clear of Ossett, who have a game in hand as their fixture at Undercliffe has been re-arranged.

Hartshead Moor continue to hover just above the danger zone following their 83-run defeat against Baildon.

Bowlers Iain Wardlaw (6-42) and Danny Squire (3-67) did their bit, but Baildon's total of 220 proved too big a challenge for their batsmen.

Opener Craig Field (45) battled hard but lacked support as his side were bowled out for 137, with Mounam Ejaz taking 4-51.

Yeadon's relegation was all but rubber stamped as they went down to a four-wicket defeat against Bankfoot.

Jawad Waheeed took 4-32 and Shanz Prangige 3-18 as Yeadon were dismissed for 128.

Bankfoot lost six wickets reaching their target as spinner James Massheder picked up 3-28.
