DEFENDING champions Accrington could not have picked a better time to play Ramsbottom.
There is little love lost between the Ramsbottom and Haslingden after Phil Hayes and Chris Read moved to Bentgate.
Accrington won the toss and invited Ramsbottom to bat on winning the toss.
The Acre Bottom side never got a foothold in the game before they started losing wickets with opener and skipper Keith Webb starting the procession after he had scored two and the total was 10.
Host pro Roy Silva then had his counterpart Brenton Parchment caught behind when he had only five to his name.
And the scene was then set for David Ormerod, despite carrying a slight thigh injury, to conjure up some of his magic and he took 5-43 as the visitors were bowled out for just 106 runs.
Robert Read (27 not out) top-scored for Ramsbottom and opener Alex Bell (20) was the only other batsman to get out of the teens.
Ramsbottom got a couple of early wickets in Accrington's reply with opener Matt Wilson departing for seven and James Ormerod falling to the pace of Haslam.
But the experienced Graham Lloyd ensured Accrington were always in the box seat with 47 runs from 73 balls.
But Ross Brown caused problems at the other end with two wickets and also bowled Lloyd but by then Accrington only required another five runs for victory and Sneddon (10 not out) and Schofield completed the job with the winning hit coming off the last ball of the thirtieth over.
Brown was Ramsbottom's best bowler and finished the day with 3-49.
Over at Lanehead, Enfield ran into a in-form Bacup, who have been stung into action after their huge loss to Haslingden recently
And Bacup made it three wins from three games and moved 23 points clear of Rawtenstall at the foot of the table with a 39-run win against the Dill Hall Lane side.
Bacup lost the toss and were put in to bat by the Enfield outfit.
But the Lanehead side made a good start with a 54-run stand for the opening wicket before Ryan Broad was trapped in front by fellow paid-man Gary Brent.
There was then a spate of dismissals with Farragher, Killelea,Taylor and McCluskie departing in quick succession with with Brent causing most of the carnage and Taylor (5) the only one to trouble the scorers and avoiding an entry in the "duck club"
Thompson briefly retired hurt on 26 but Highley and Spencer enjoyed a sixth-wicket partnership of 61 before the latter departed to a catch to Demaine to give Brent his sixth wicket.
Thompson returned to the firing line and he and Highley added 34 more runs before Thomspon was out for 42.
But Highley (53 not out) remained to claim his first Lancashire League half ton and that helped Bacup bat out the overs to finish with 193-9 from their 50 overs.
Enfield's reply was quickly stalled with openers Maudsley and Fergusson and number four Wrigley all back in the pavilion with the total on only seven.
That left professional Gary Brent slightly bemused at the other end but he then started to put the foundations down for an Enfield revival.
After losing Burns the paid man then enjoyed a good fifth-wicket partnership with Fazal that boosted Enfield's total to 86 before the latter departed after notching 28.
Aziz then added 15 before he became sixth man down and then Bacup got the prized scalp of Brent a run later it was the beginning of the end at 117-7.
But some spirited late resistance from Bracewell (15) and Fazal (10 not out) was never going to be enough to earn more than bonus batting points.
Rishton came up against bottom club Rawtenstall, who still prop up the table after the hosts' four-wicket win.
Rawtenstall opted to bat on winning the toss but they were soon rueing that decision at 19-3 with pro Andy Payne, opener John Hayman and number four Josh Rushmore back in the dressing room with Hutchinson and Rostron doing the damage.
Matt Kershaw (15) and Toby Bulcock (32) produced a mini revival but then the wheels came off again as the visitors slumped to 100 all out in 35.4 overs with only Shafiq (16) getting into double figures.
Richard Rostron was Rawtenstall's nemesis with 6-31 from 17.4 overs to earn a collection and take the plaudits at the end of the innings.
Getting 100 hardly looked a huge task with Keith Roscoe not in the opposition bowling ranks.
But Rawtenstall made a phenomenal start with openers Chris Lambert and Karl Andrews dismissed before a run was scored. And 0-2 became 18-3 with number three Richard Rostron out for two.
However professional Adam Bracewell decided attack was the best form of defence.
He smashed his way to 66 from just 53 balls and lifted his side to a comfortable victory.
Andy Bartley and the pro pair put on 76 for the fourth wicket to lift the hosts to 94.
Bartley and Bracewell both fell to Bulcock and Rushmore joined in by bowling Hacking for a duck as 94-3 became 94-6.
But John Seedle and Bibby steered Rishton over the line without further loss in 19.4 overs.
Pro Luke Woodcock was also the man in form for Church and his unbeaten 69 runs helped the visitors to a four-wicket win at Liverpool Road.
But things did not start well for Church with Jon Finch and Ben Heap in form and the pair took the total to 100 before they were parted in the 36th over.
And although Lowerhouse still had nine wickets in hand they failed to accelerate much in the final 15 overs despite Finch remaining unbeaten on 88.
Pro Sandri and top amateur Bleazard and Charlie Cottam all went for ducks and it was left to Joe Beneduce (14) and Hawke (eight not out) to elevate the total to 145 when the innings closed.
Church's reply suffered an early setback when Sam Holt was out for a duck and only Woodcock of the top four batsmen was standing his ground with Tucker (6) and Wolfenden (0) adding to the woes as the score crept to 31 on the back of the pro.
Mehmood's 11 runs provided a little bit of stability before Greenwood joined the pro and a the pair had a sixth-wicket stand of 82 that took the visitors to the brink of victory before the amateur was bowled by Collins after scoring 30.
