Josh hits a dou­ble ton and Tom takes nine

Halifax Courier - - Sport -

bot­tom two be­cause Queens­bury were 85-run home win­ners over War­ley in a game re­duced to 43 overs per side.

Dan Syme’s five for 42 lim­ited ‘Bury to 196 but War­ley folded from 48 for two to 111 all out with spin­ner Girdev Singh adding another five wick­ets to his tally.

Booth were un­able to take ad­van­tage of Jer Lane’s slip af­ter a six-run de­feat at home to Sowerby Bridge.

Moaz­zam Ayub did his best to be their match-win­ner for the sec­ond week run­ning, but the num­ber 10 bats­man was out for 22 with vic­tory in touch­ing dis­tance.

Bridge made 237 with Chris White­hill’s 53 their top score and Jake Dixon did the rest, the spin­ner tak­ing six for 69 and bowl­ing Moaz­zam in the penul­ti­mate over to clinch vic­tory.

Booth were joined in sec­ond spot by their Calder Val­ley ri­vals Mytholm­royd, who had a com­fort­able 55-run win at SBCI.

Wa­jid Ali (61) rolled back the years as opener in ab­sence of Steve Se­nior as ‘Royd to­talled 203 for nine.

Jack Earle and James Cowens then took five wick­ets apiece, Chris Dalby (52) and Dan Keigh­ley (38) get­ting the lion’s share of SBCI’s runs.

Co­p­ley climbed to sixth thanks to an un­bro­ken 120run four-wicket part­ner­ship be­tween Mark Bald­win (73 no) and Nick Gom­er­sal (58 no), which car­ried them past vis­i­tors Tri­an­gle’s 182 for nine.
