SALTAIRE continued their push to win Division One of the Aire-Wharfe League after crushing rock-bottom Olicanian by 179 runs over the weekend at Roberts Park.

They racked up a massive 361-9 in their 50 overs. Awaise Hussain top scored with 74, but there were also impressive contributions from Jibrael Malik (66), Aftab Khan (61) and Mussawar Shah (58).

Olicanian never got close as Sajad Ali (3-39) whipped out the top order in quick time, before Amjid Hussain (4-11) took late wickets to dismiss the visitors for just 182.

They are level on points with Rawdon, who won by 32 runs against Collingham & Linton.

Rawdon's innings was underpinned by a fine 129 not out from opener Andrew Duckworth, as he helped his score 274-6.

Gareth Clough then took 4-40, as Collingham & Linton could only manage 242 all out.

Otley are still top and unbeaten, and they must have thought they were in for an easy afternoon when they dismissed Follifoot for just 97 (Stephen Brown 5-19).

But Istikhar Hussain took 5-40 and left them floundering on 71-6 in reply, before Joshua Stephenson's 32no helped them over the line by four wickets.

Jason Wright's 6-13 saw Burley-in-Wharfedale rumble Addingham for just 62, but they only stumbled over the line by three wickets in their reply.

Elsewhere, North Leeds edged out Bilton by two wickets, while Ilkley completed a routine six-wicket win over Horsforth.

In Division Two, David Hester thrashed a stunning 134 for Tong Park Esholt in their score of 263-7, but a fine Bardsey chase saw them home by three wickets.

Beckwithshaw were bowled out for 196 at Green Lane and the hosts were indebted to wicket-keeper Asif Yousaf's unbeaten 62 for helping them to win by three wickets and go top.

Fellow high-flyers Horsforth Hall Park dismissed Kirkstall Educational for 223 and a well-executed chase saw them win by four wickets.

Steeton had visiting Adel on the ropes at 165-9 but a last-wicket unbroken partnership of 64 saw them up to 229-9.

The deflated hosts then crumbled to 169 all out, despite Stephen Pearson's lone hand of 74 complementing his earlier three wickets.

Pool were defending a sub-par total of 204-9, but did that with ease as they dismissed Calverley St Wilfrid's for only 138.

The Guiseley and New Rover game was rain-affected and ended with no result.

In Division Three, Brad Firn thumped 88 as hosts and new leaders Colton Institute racked up 339-8 against Thackley. The visitors got nowhere near and were all out for just 213.

Title rivals Skipton only scored 207 all out at Alwoodley but a stunning effort by Iqbal Khan (8-39) with the ball saw the home side skittled for 67.

Ben Rhydding beat Tong Park's seconds in a low-scoring game by four wickets, while Ash Britton's 94 helped Old Leodiensians hit 329-7 before his side dismissed Ilkley's seconds for 186.

St Chad's Broomfield scored 282-7 at home to North Leeds' seconds, but an unbeaten seventh wicket partnership of 109, led by Aqib Iqbal (85no), saw the visitors home.

In Division Four, Anas Imtiaz scored 76 and took 3-15 to help his Menston side beat Calverley St Wilfrid's seconds by 81 runs.

Finally, Harden's Matthew Hogg took 5-34 to help dismiss Saltaire's seconds for just 103, and his side chased that down easily to win by eight wickets.
