Beck­withshaw bested by Ot­ley

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - CRICKET -

WADDILOVE CUP: Ot­ley, who are al­ready hot favourites to take over as Aire Wharfe cham­pi­ons from Beck­withshaw, also ended their ri­vals’ hopes of re­tain­ing this tro­phy.

Beck­withshaw’s 154 al­ways looked a low to­tal to de­fend and even though Ot­ley lost four early wick­ets, David Hester (48no) and James Davies (34no) eased them home with 23 overs in hand.

Guise­ley shrugged off league form that has seen them drop to the bot­tom of the ta­ble and won a thriller at Fol­li­foot.

Fol­li­foot’s mid­dle or­der – Yasar Ali (56), Chris Clark (41) and Josh Cutts (66no) – swept them to 260-8 and, de­spite James Thistleth­waite’s 52, Guise­ley looked sec­ond best at 97-4.

But Da­mon Reeve (98) and Joe Fisher (68no) put on 158 and even though they lost two more wick­ets at 255, Guise­ley clinched the win with a four off the last avail­able ball.

Cameron Dun­can (49) top scored in Pool’s 191-9 and even though Colling­ham’s tail-en­ders put up a spir­ited rear­guard ac­tion, they were still bowled out for 143, Will Pal­lis­ter tak­ing 4-19.

Pool will next face Hors­forth who eased past Tong Park Esholt’s 202 with five wick­ets and ten overs in hand.
