HUDDERSFIELD’S Joe Lumb Cup hopes ended dismally when they crashed to a nine wicket defeat against the North Yorkshire & South Durham side.
Sent in to bat first, Huddersfield fell to Durham Academy bowler Harper who knocked over the top three, while Weighell scooped another three as Huddersfield crashed to 20-6 in only seven overs.
Only Alex Walker (14) and Jonny Hoyle (17) put up any resistance moving the score from 16-6 to 39-7 before Walker holed out, as the visitors were out for 58.
Huddersfield will now play in the third-fourth place play-off for the Jack Lees Trophy against the Barnsley League at Lascelles Hall on Sunday, September 4 (1.00).
The Earnshaw Cup final between Hall Bower and Linthwaite will also be played on Sunday, September 4 (Noon) as both sides were encountering problems with playing on the re-scheduled date of August 28.
The Oddfellows Cup final between Clayton West and Thongsbridge is unaffected and will be played on the 28th.
