DEAN RICKSON put Rastrick to the sword with a blistering undefeated 130 for Clayton West.
Going in at No3 in their big Inter-Conference Two clash at Round Hill, Rickson hammered 10 sixes and eight other boundaries as Clayton totalled 229-4.
Rastrick made a valiant effort to chase, but they were pegged at 191-8 in the 45-over clash.
Marsden’s Jason Longmore took a hat trick against Cedar Court Two leaders Barkisland and still finished on the losing side.
He spearheaded the visitors’ attack at Woodfield with six for 42 from 12 overs as Barkisland were dismissed for 121, but Marsden were skittled for 80 in reply – Jamie Sykes taking four for 13 from 11 overs and brother Daniel four for 26 from nine.
Jamie Sykes had earlier hit 47 and, with strong support from Nick Oddy (39), rescued Barkisland from 29-7 to reach that 121 total.
Exceptional bowling from Adam King, who claimed five for seven, and Imran Arif Lohdi (three for four) ensured Delph six points against Lepton, who were rolled for 68. Delph did not lose a wicket knocking them off.
In Premiership Two, Meltham’s Howard Palmer again showed his liking for the Scholes bowling with 108 not out in their five-point win.
Set a target of 213-6 in which young Louis Sykes scored a maiden senior half century (61 including eight fours and a six), Meltham romped home by nine wickets – Palmer blasting seven sixes and 10 fours in his knock which followed a double century against the same opposition only a couple of weeks ago!
He shared in a match-winning unbroken stand of 185 with teenager Luke Kenworthy, who hit four sixes and eight fours in his 81 not out.
Meltham were beaten the following day, however, at Holmfirth in their re-arranged fixture.
Shepley, who were unable to play Scholes on Sunday because of rain, had a thrilling victory the previous day against Primrose Hill.
Chasing a total of 197-8, Shepley duo Jason Thorpe (11 not out) and Chris Cox (13 not out) needed 14 off the last over and sealed victory off the final delivery. Ian Parry with 57 and Ashley Littlewood (44) anchored the reply after Mohammed Zabhir hit 55 for Primrose Hill and Rob Denton took four for 61.
Brothers Dan and Tom Barber led Skelmanthorpe to maximum points against Kirkburton, scoring 53 and 50 not out respectively as they chased down Burton’s 164 all out for the loss of three wickets.
Brett Lodge had five for 24 as Armitage Bridge scored a fine win over Lascelles Hall, who were shot out for 58 in reply to 166-6.
