GREAT HARWOOD professional Gyan Pandey chalked up his first Ribblesdale League century to make sure his side keep the early pressure on the top sides.
Russell Whalley's team are poised in fifth place after seeing off Earby on Saturday before rain ruined their local derby clash with Baxenden on Sunday.
Former Todmorden professional Pandey, who signed for Harwood in the summer, hit his ton in 100 balls with 13 boundaries and four sixes which steered them - along with Allan Armer's 52 in 44 balls - to their second league win of the season.
Baxenden enjoyed a good win over struggling Read on Saturday with it being a real team effort. Dave Usher got 33 and wicket keeper Andrew Caunce an unbeaten 38 in their 191-6. Professional Jonathan Fielding then took three wickets to win by 32 runs.
Fielding will be unhappy on Sunday as his 74 against Great Harwood in their 170-8 won't count because of the weather. Equally Great Harwood bowler Stuart Maher will be disappointed as his 5-55 won't go down in the record books with the match abandoned because of the rain.
It remains bleak for Oswaldtwistle Immanuel as they still search for their first victory of the season.
On Saturday, they lost to Settle despite 62 from Oliver Clare in their 146-5. Brothers Keith Hornby (47) and Stuart Hornby (85 not out) took control and saw off the Immanuel attack.
But Gerard Metcalf's side will have been disappointed on Sunday after professional Ahmer Saeed made 89 - and Clare 22 - in their 172-9 against Whalley. It was a strong score but Whalley never got a chance to reply.
Immanuel travel to Clitheroe tomorrow (Sat) looking for their first win of the season. Harwood will be hoping to move towards the top of the table at struggling Barnoldswick while Baxenden take on Cherry Tree at Back Lane.
