The top of Area A in the Sellers Huddersfield Junior League Under 13s is very close, with only four points separating the top five clubs, all of whom won their latest matches.
Upperthong lead the Area but Clayton West were the most impressive team, piling up 168 runs in their 20 overs and then restricting their opponents, Rastrick, to 63-5.
The batting honours for Clayton went to Bradley Geldart, Tom James and Alex Spivey who all retired.
The top bowling return was also in Area A by Kia Tahir of Kirkburton, who took four wickets for no runs against Elland, twice being on a hat trick in each of his two overs.
Paddock took over the top position in Area B after beating third placed Honley by 18 runs with the previous leaders, Broad Oak, losing to Delph in another close game.
Marsden managed to play their first home game for eight weeks and came out on top in their game against Shepley to record their first win of the season.
In Area C, only four points separate the top four teams with previous table toppers, Cumberworth, coming unstuck in the derby against Shelley.
It was a low-scoring game and the Shelley innings was held together by Matthew Stead, who retired on 25 runs.
