Dalton found Carlisle too hot to handle last Saturday, as the Cumbria Cricket League champions ran out winners by 91 runs at Ulverston Road, thanks to five wickets from Jonathan Davidson.

After winning the toss Carlisle chose to bat and Ben Davidson held his side together with an important 64 not out from number eight after the visitors' top order struggled.

With support from Mike Slack (41), Carlisle posted 194-9 from their 50 overs, with Dalton's bowlers sharing out the wickets.

Dalton would be disappointed with their batting in reply, as Lasith Lakshan made 25 and Rob Jones 24, but the side were all out for just 103, with Jonathan Davidson returning superb figures of 5-40 and Fraser Conn backing him up with 4-27.

Mark Daly made an extraordinary unbeaten century as Furness recovered from the disappointment of missing out on the league title by comfortably defeating relegated Egremont by 83 runs.

Furness' weakened top order led to them being reduced to 17-3, but their innings recovered thanks to the fantastic efforts of Daly, who smashed 133 not not off just 113 balls, including ten fours and five sixes.

This helped the hosts post 223-6, as Egremont's Shaun Bostock took 5-27, and the visitors never looked like chasing down their target.

Bostock top-scored with 39, but 5-36 from Garry Thompson and 3-36 from Chris Williams led to Egremont being bowled out for 140 in the 38th over.

Lindal Moor eased to a 94-run win on the road at Wigton after 64 from opener Ryan Gilmour and 45 from Dean Williams helped them to a defendable 175-7, with Chris Hodgson and Jonny Honeyman both taking three wickets for Wigton.

The hosts then collapsed to 81 all out in reply, as Sri Lankan overseas player Janith de Silva claimed 3-14.

A wet wicket led to Millom's match at Cockermouth being abandoned after 19 overs, with the visitors 88-4 by the time the umpires made the decision the track was unplayable.

The final straw came when Graham Dawson was struck by a ball that flew off the wicket at a dangerous height.

Cleator ran up the biggest win of the day, as they thrashed Whitehaven by 122 runs, skittling their opponents for just 45 after putting on 167-8.

Workington defeated Keswick by 91 runs in defending 165 all out, which included 36 from Callum Sutton and four wickets each from Keswick's Geeth Kumara and James McGown, as they rolled out the visitors for only 74, with Kristian Moffat taking 4-13.
