Centuries from openers Gary Fellows, above, and Nick Connolly powered Hanging Heaton into the third round of the ECB Clubs Championship.
Fellows scored 118 and Connolly (113) in a 49-run win over Yorkshire Cricket Southern Premier League side Elsecar.
Both batsmen hit three sixes and 13 fours during a partnership of 236 which enabled their side to make 307-4 in their 40 overs. When their partnership was broken by the dismissal of Connolly, Fellows walked off with him and retired.
Elsecar weren’t put off by the size of the task facing them. Openers Hasnat Yousaf (61) and Sam Shaw (58) gave them a bright start before former Lightcliffe, Morley and Gomersal batsman Kashif Naveed hit 72 and Tanzeel Ali (39).
The visitors needed 80 from the last 10 overs but their challenge ultimately faltered after Callum Geldart dismissed Naveed. Elsecar finished on 258-8 in a match that produced 565 runs in 80 overs.
Hanging Heaton now face an away trip to play the Yorkshire League North side Woodhouse Grange on Sunday, June 27.
