There was play in two games in Division Two and neither reached a finish.
Cowling entertained Sutton and stumbled to 20-2, before Martyn Dalby (59no) and Matthew Wiggan (20), put on 82 for the third wicket. Soon after their partnership was broken the game was abandoned.
Just down the road at Glusburn, Riddlesden were the visitors.
