BARWICK-IN-Elmet completed a double by stretching their winning run to 13 league and cup matches last weekend.

Fred Fleetwood Cup winners Barwick lifted their second trophy in eight days by beating Bilton in Ainsty in Sunday’s Senior Evening Cup final at Wetherby.

Nick Swales (31), Matt Prosser (22) and Jamie Swales (21no) led Barwick to 118-6 and Jamie Swales (4-19) and Andrew Styan (2-13) limited Bilton’s reply to 96-7.

Jamie Swales won the man of the match award in both finals.

It completed a successful weekend for Barwick who beat Old Leodiensians by eight wickets the previous day, with Australian all-rounder Prosser hitting an unbeaten century and snapping up 3-30.

Leaders Great Preston lost by 86 runs to Bilton in Ainsty but second placed Wetherby failed to capitalise as they were beaten by Scarcroft.

Matthew Ansell (75no) and Damian Aston (65no) shared an unbroken 113-run stand as Scarcroft overhauled Wetherby’s 183-8.

Dwayne Heke (91) and Jake McVicar (45) put on 98 as Old Modernians won a 35-over match against Kirk Deighton.

Jonathan Watkins (73no), Richard Ward (58no) and Aidan Marshall (37 and 4-43) were best for Deighton.

Sicklinghall ended their relegation worries by edging a low-scoring game at St Chad’s.

Adam Ryskowski (4-26), Zahid Ali (2-21) and Andy Wood 
(2-18) routed Chad’s for 98 after Fahim Khan (5-25), Ewan Brannan (2-18) and Atiq Khan (2-14) had toppled Sicklinghall for 106.

Sicklinghall are 22 points clear of winless bottom team Walton who lost by six wickets at Shadwell after Ben Turner 
(5-18) and Brad Taylor (4-24) skittled them for 93.

Division Two leaders Scholes moved closer to clinching promotion by beating South Milford.

Danusha Ranasinghe (46) and Mark Sirrell (34) guided Scholes to 163-8 and Sirrell (2-22), Chris Roberts (2-18) and Mike Ford (2-23) sent Milford’s reply collapsing to 110 all out.

Scholes are 10 points clear of closest rivals Garforth Parish Church who lost by 47 runs at Kirk Hammerton, despite the best efforts of a fine century from Tom Main.

Church Fenton climbed to third place when Sam Malpass (56) steered them to a two-wicket victory against Hillam whose defeat was tough on batsmen Martin Pugh (61no) and Luke Frankland (51) and bowler Will Vaks (4-56).

Jamie Baxter (45no) and Steve Hills (5-19) were Saxton’s match-winners at Whixley.

Ledsham slipped to third bottom after Thorner Mexborough’s Anjum Bilal Sabir (4-3) and 
Josh Walker (3-14) routed them for 82.
