Thongsbridge won their Holme Valley derby to go back to the summit of the Jedi Sports Championship while Mirfield Parish Cavaliers are guaranteed promotion from the Cedar Court Conference.
Thongsbridge are in poll position to return to the Drakes Premiership after beating Holmfirth by two wickets while rivals Moorlands lost to Meltham – who are now right in the promotion fray themselves – and Rastrick were beaten at home by Clayton West.
It’s extremely close, though, with only eight points separating the top four.
Ben Howitt was the hero for Thongsbridge with four for 29 and then 76 not out, taking them to 209-8 after bowling out visitors Holmfirth for 207.
He received solid backing from Richard Wagstaff with 34 and Zimbabwean Brandon Mavuta with 33 as the Bridge got home, while Chris Cowell (51) and Alec Jakeman (34) were the best of the Holmfirth batsmen.
At Moorlands, Meltham got home by just one wicket thanks to an undefeated 69 from Mudasar Butt.
Meltham finished on 182-9 after restricting the home side to 180-6.
Michael Rounding led the way for Moorlands with 50, while Muhammad Kashif took four for 50 for the visitors.
Rastrick, now fourth, were undone at Round Hill by a superb seven for 25 spell in 9.2 overs from Ben Oldroyd.
He went on as second change and sent Rastrick back for 126 – Faisal Javed hitting 41 – after Clayton West had set a target of 196-9 thanks to 42 from Alex Clegg and 31 from Dan Barner. Wasim Javed took four for 74 and Jack Pearson three for 60
While Mirfield Parish Cavaliers won again and now cannot be caught in the final four matches, so they will be playing in thei Championship next summer in only their second season of Drakes cricket.
Parish bowled out home side Lepton for 108 – Kiwi Cameron Neal hitting 56 of those while Dan Hope picked up five for 22 and Connor Rowlands three for 26.
The visitors, who now top the table with 99 points but crucially lead third-placed Upperthong by 25 points with only 24 to play for, won by three wickets on 110-7, Nazar Hussain finishing 40 not out.
In the top flight, leaders Delph & Dobcross were indebted to a century from Indian Shree Goswami in beating Cawthorne by two wickets, while Steve Whitwam hit 124 as Golcar defeated Broad Oak to move up to fourth in the standings.
Delph are now 14 points clear of Hoylandswaine, who were beaten at home by resurgent Honley.
