Hang­ing Heaton quickly dou­ble up

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - CRICKET -

BLACK SHEEP TRO­PHY: Hang­ing Heaton won their sec­ond tro­phy in as many weeks by fol­low­ing up the pre­vi­ous week’s triumph in the Heavy Woollen Cup with vic­tory over Wake­field Thornes in the Black Sheep Tro­phy.

With David Stiff (4-46) and Aqsad Ali (3-6) peg­ging away, Thornes opener James Wolfenden (30) found it dif­fi­cult to hang on to part­ners un­til he and Josh Shaw (22) put on 52 for the fourth wicket.

The in­nings was also plagued by rain breaks af­ter which Heaton were sharp to pick up wick­ets and, with the fi­nal three go­ing down in just eight balls, Thornes were dis­missed for 142, which was ad­justed un­der Duck­worth Lewis to a tar­get of 152.

Heaton lost their pro­lific open­ing pair of Gary Fel­lows and Nick Con­nolly with only 24 on the board, but any nerves were quickly calmed when Joe Fraser and Cal­lum Gel­dart put on 88 for the third wicket.

When Fraser went for 52, Gel­dart (47no) saw them home with the help of Ben KohlerCad­more, who cracked five fours in making 22 in 11 balls.
