A strong batting performance by Lightcliffe under 15s was the key to a second successive win as the team looked to finish the season strongly.
Top order batsmen Bradley Atkinson, James Lunn and Ben Ward saw off the visitors’ strong start to capitalize on the change bowling as all retired unbeaten on 30’s.
Toby Morley’s 18 score meant the side had a strong target of 133 to defend.
Northowram’s 2 strong players who opened the bowling did the same with the batting but Lightcliffe were resilient as once they had both retired, the home side’s fielding tightened the grip.
Mack Smith took a wicket and 2 victims for the ever-improving Ethan Lumb ensured Lightcliffe won with 11 runs to spare.
