ADDINGHAM went third in Division One of the Aire-Wharfe League after a 29-run win over their hosts Rawdon, with the victory mainly down to two fine individual performances.

Will Atkins struck 71 with the bat, as he helped his side compose an imposing total of 205-5. Ricky Palacio supported him well with 31 in a stand of 81, before he took 6-27 to reduce Rawdon to 176-8.

Elswhere, Steeton suffered a surprised seven-wicket defeat at lowly Colton Park Institute in Division Two of the Aire-Wharfe League.

Despite Aatif Modak (24) and William Luxton (17) putting on 38 for the opening wicket, they soon collapsed to 99-8. A wag from the tail, led by Adam Hardwick (17) saw them at least limp to 126 all out.

Paul Hardwick (2-38) and Stephen Pearson (1-13) took early wickets as Colton slumped to 20-3, but a fine 75 not out from Brad Firn saw the second-bottom side home with an easy win in the end.

Colton's mood will have improved further after hearing about rivals Ben Rhydding's collapse at Tong Park Esholt. TPE's Mahir Ali took mind-boggling figures of 9-10 to rout the visitors for 39, with his side then reaching 40-4 to claim victory.

Meanwhile, in Division Three, struggling Skipton suffered a heartbreaking three-run home defeat to Bolton Villas. Louis Brown hit 56no down the order as Villas recorded 179 all out.

Sam Lawrence ran through Skipton's top order with 4-24, but a tail end wag looked like it might see them over the line. They lost their ninth wicket on 176 though, and with no number 11, they had to concede defeat.

Skipton remain third-bottom, just eight points clear of the relegation spots.
