Cockermouth and Keswick were unable to continue their challenges because of Covid conformations in their opponents’ club. Lindal and Whitehaven respectively had  to call-off the fixtures.

There were wins for leaders Carlisle, Furness and Cleator while Workington had a good win at Wigton in the only other top flight game to survive.

Carlisle were at bottom club Dalton were they won by seven wickets with 9.1overs to spare.

The hosts were bowled out for 118 in 38.4 overs as young Josh Sterling (5-15) and Jonathan Davidson (4-21) did the damage. Lindal would have been in big trouble but for an innings sustaining partnership between Joe Braund-Smith (45) and Amari Goodridge (41).

Professional Michael Slack made 40in Carlisle’s winning reply of 119-3.

Furness had a timely win at local rivals Millom as they reached their target with ten balls to spare, making 204-3. The home side had made 202-5 in 50 overs.

Graham Dawson(49 )and Anthony Foster (49no) boosted Millom mid-innings as Peter Lawson returned oh-so-solid figures of 10-6-9-2.

In the Furness reply professional Promod Maduwantha (93no) and Nathan Waterston (89) did the spadework to see them home.

In a low-scoring game Cleator nailed the points at home to Haverigg. They bowled-out the visitors fo r 74 and then did enough in 23.2overs to get to 76-6.

Only two Haverigg batsmen- pro Sachin Jayawardena (19) and number ten Jack Brearey (14)-made double figures as they struggled against veteran David Rooney (5-22)and Darren Clark (4-22).

It wasn't exactly a walk in the park for the hosts but they got there in the end, with Clark top-scoring on 17. Jayawardena took 3-27.  

At Wigton the home side made 149-9 against Workington with Mikey Hill top-scoring on 37. Lihuru Dilshan (3-29) and Matthew Lowden (2-13) were the most successful bowlers for the  visitors.

The reply was built on a steady 24 in 22overs from opener Grant Reid alongside Jake Daniel. Then Kristian Moffat came in and smashed 44 off 26 balls.

Daniel went on to make 47 before being dismissed with only two to win. Dilshan hit 27 off 14 balls as Workington won on 152-3.
