Second round

The full line-up for next Sunday's quarter-finals is now known after Scholes, Lightcliffe, Pudsey St Lawrence, Undercliffe and Woodlands all secured their places in the last eight in matches which were again affected by rain.

The four of the ties - postponed from last week - were decided on faster scoring rate as the weather again restricted the amount of play that was possible and the fifth was determined by a bowl out.

Woodlands beat Cleckheaton 2-1 in the bowl out after a storm ruled out play before the ten over cut off in the second innings when a comparison of run rates can come into effect.

In the play that was possible, Woodlands dismissed their near-neigbours for just 98 with Chris Brice taking 3-8 and Sarfraz Ahmed (3-17). The top scorer was Mohammad Zaman with 34.

Woodlands were 14-2 after 6.4 overs when play was halted so the tie had to be determined by a bowl out which the home side won to secure a home tie against Baildon next Sunday.

Champions Pudsey St Lawrence secured their last-eight spot with victory over Championship B side Wrenthorpe on faster scoring rate.

Wrenthorpe made 184-9 in a match reduced before the start to 30 overs per side. Jordan Sleightholme (44) and Luke Patel (40) led the way while Oliver Ashford was easily the best of the St Lawrence bowlers with a fine return of

St Lawrence knew that with rain threatening they had to ensure that they were in front of Wrenthorpe's overall scoring rate once the game reached a point when a comparison could be made.

Openers Adam Wite (61no) and Mark Robertshaw (53no) were up to the task and guided their side to 131-0 in 17 overs when rain finally halted play.

St Lawrence will now be away to Undercliffe who defeated Gomersal by virtue of a superior run rate. Gomersal batted first in the 40 overs per side contest and made 161-6 with Adam Greenwood hitting an unbeaten 60. The rain restricted Undercliffe's reply to 19 overs during which time they made 85-1.

Kasir Maroof hit an unbeaten 84 as Scholes defeated his former club Yeadon on scoring rate. Scholes mader 163-3 in 25 overs while Yeadon were 97-7 after 18 when play was abandoned. James Stansfield took 4-20.

Next for Scholes is a home tie with Lightcliffe who saw off the challenge of the Championship A leaders Batley.

Lightcliffe restricted their opponents to 87-9 in 25 overs as Suleman Khan (3-3) and Sam Gardner (3-11) kept Batgley under pressure. Lightcliffe made 41-1 from 11 overs to win on faster run rate.
