PONTEFRACT and District Cricket League Division Six East leaders Hundhill Hall scraped a seven-run win against Hensall.

All-rounder Dan Ferguson was the East Hardwick side’s key performer.

Ferguson (32) top-scored in Hundhill’s total of 119-8 and then bagged 4-26 as Hensall were bowled out for 112.

Hensall’s defeat was tough on skipper Gary Lewis (58 and 5-20).

Aiden Ellison (3-25) and Paul Lumb (3-11) gave FerrybridgePower Station the edge at Pegler.

Chasing Sykehouse’s 110, Thorpe Audlin fell agonisingly short when they were all out for 104.

Sean Flynn (5-40) and Bailey Jones (3-26) bowled well for Thorpe.

Richard Grange hammered a superb unbeaten 152 in Ryhill and Havercroft’s 193-run win against Denby Grange in Division Six West.

Richard Boldy (5-20) and Luke Speight (4-9) skittled Denby for 29, replying to Ryhill’s 222-3.

Excellent displays by all-rounder Garret Dakin (5-29 and 44no) and 77-year-old Peter Cockroft (4-22) were in vain for Glasshoughton in a 25-run home defeat against Calder Grove in Division Five West.

Dakin and Cockroft limited Calder Grove to 139 which included 72 by opener Neil Gunter but Glasshoughton’s reply fell short on 114-6.

Fairburn’s Division Five East promotion bid suffered a setback with a 56-run loss at Eggborough Power Station.

Replying to Eggborough’s 126-5, Fairburn managed only 70, despite 39 by Andy Clegg. Eggborough’s Lee Dowson bagged 3-37 and Liam Gale 3-12.

A magnificent 80 by Josh Hepworth was not enough to avert Featherstone’s 16-run home defeat against Rossington Main.

Jack Lee (4-33) and Richard Colley (3-25) dismissed Rossington for 136.

Hepworth held Featherstone’s reply together almost single-handedly but he lacked support as the home side were bowled out for 120.

All-rounder Grant McLean gave Whitley Bridge the upper hand against Hemsworth.

McLean (58no), Nathaniel Reeson (42) and Jaspal Singh (37) steered Whitley to 174-6.

McLean (4-43) and Andy Brown (5-36) dismissed Hemsworth for 143 in 34.1 overs, with six players given out leg before wicket.

John Briggs and Mark O’Connor, who both hit 19, were Hemsworth’s joint top scorers.

Harry Brown (51) and Carl Dykes (43) led Barnby Dun to 191-8 at Brodsworth who were routed for 88.
