Sri Lankan overseas Lahiru Jayakody struck a brilliant century, as Haverigg moved level on points with leaders Furness 2nd XI, following a 45-run victory in last Saturday's top-of-the-table clash in Division One of the Cumbria Cricket League.

After winning the toss and choosing to bat at a sunny Furness Park, Haverigg lost both openers cheaply to fall to 13-2, but Jayakody then took control, making 109 from just 84 balls.

Thanks to 40 from Joe Harvey and Robbie Evans finishing unbeaten on 22, the visitors were able to post 225-9 from their 50 overs.

For Furness, Harris Woods was the pick of the bowlers with 3-27 while Sam Stephens, with 3-52 from his 15 overs, also bowled well.

Furness made a competent start in reply, but 35-1 became 40-4 and despite 40 from Ben Sharp, 33 from Elliot Maxfield and 25 from Jake Woods, the home side were 180-9 when overs ran out.

Jayakody also starred with the ball, as he claimed 3-31 and Tomas Hawdon chipped in with 3-47, to keep the Poolsiders in control.

Kirkby captain Mike Fugler had an outstanding match, as he helped his side to an emphatic 109-run victory against Seascale.

Kirkby slid to 69-5 when batting first, but Fugler turned their innings around with and unbeaten 72, while he shared a sixth-wicket stand worth 114 with Matthew Bruce, who made 55, to help the hosts to 210-8.

Seascale's Paul Knott took 3-33, but despite a good 39 from opener Joe Hammond, Seascale struggled with the bat and were all out for 101 in 30 overs, with Fugler ending his great day by taking a fantastic 7-22 from nine overs.

Hawcoat Park edged a tense game against Lindal Moor 2nd XI by just 18 runs, as they defended 152 all out (opener Cameron Mcdougall top-scoring with 45).

For Lindal, Megan Smith was excellent with the ball in taking 4-15, while Bradley Stephens claimed 3-47, but Hawcoat’s attack also impressed during the visitors’ reply. Only Laura Marshall’s 44 provided any real resistance, as Lindal were bowled out for 134 in the 43rd over.

Ross Parke took three wickets from the ten deliveries he sent down, without conceding a run, while Dave Thompson (3-19) and Callum Lucas (3-57 also impressed).

Despite 64 from Gareth Yates, Ulverston lost to Cockermouth 2nd XI by 73 runs after the home side posted 215 all out, thanks to 54 from middle order batsman Jack Edmondson.

Samson Storey took 4-59 for Ulverston and Shivan Perera 3-38 but the latter was one of only two batsmen to reach double figures, other than Yates, as the visitors were bowled out for 144, with Gabriel Drimmie claiming 4-16 for Cockermouth.

Elsewhere, Vickerstown were skittled for 101, with captain Gareth Benson making 38, by Workington 2nd XI, for whom Adam Chambers took 6-40 before hitting 58 not out to help them to their target for a seven-wicket victory.
