HATFIELD Town ended their slump in Pontefract Cricket League Division Two by coasting to an eight-wicket win against Whitley Bridge.

Andy Cutts (65no) guided Hatfield to victory after Nick Page (5-23) and Chris Stothard (4-23) toppled Whitley for 97.

It was one of only three completed matches in the division.

Askern were 71-4 from 21 overs against Thurnscoe Institute, Hooton Pagnell reached 80-4 off 31 overs against Sprotbrough and Yorkshire Main were 156-9 against Barnby Dun before all three games were abandoned because of rain.

Fishlake’s five-match winning run in Division One ended when they lost at Ackworth.

Josh Mason (64) and Peter Butterworth (45) led Fishlake to 235-5 which Ackworth overhauled for the loss of seven wickets.

Matt Windass (2-60) was Fishlake’s most successful bowler.

Thorne Colliery retained second place in Division Three by beating Allerton Bywater by 13 runs.

Chasing Thorne’s 103 that included 27 by Mazhar Mir, Allerton were sent reeling to 66-9 by Mark Walton (5-29) and Mir (4-17).

A last wicket stand of 34 between Andy Kunkel and Tom Greenwood failed to rescue Allerton who were eventually all out for 90.

Bentley Colliery were cursing their luck when their Division Four game at Fishlake A was abandoned when they looked set for victory.

Dale Cox (5-33) skittled Fishlake for 76 and Bentley replied with 28-0 before the weather intervened.

Brodsworth Main made an excellent start against promotion rivals Peglers, reaching 61-0 before play ended.

Barnby Dun A and Sprotbrough A both lost in Division Five.

Barnby were bowled out for 77 in a 10-wicket defeat against Featherstone A and Tom Langley’s battling 46 was in vain for Sprotbrough who were dismissed for 138 in a five-wicket loss against Old Sharlston A.

Ian Joyce’s half-century helped give Hatfield A the edge against Division Six promotion rivals Rothwell A who finished on 190-6, replying to Hatfield’s 191. In Division Seven, Fenwick reached 56-1 against Knottingley A and Askern A were 42-2 at Allerton Bywater A before both games were washed out.

Division Eight title-chasers Brodsworth A reached 174-9 in an abandoned match at Peglers A.
