It's the big run-in now as the race for the Foster’s Lancashire League title enters the final stages.
Lowerhouse are hot favourites to reclaim their crown as they are joint top with Enfield and have seven games to play compared to Enfield’s six.
And, while the Dill Hall Lane side face fellow title-chasers Todmorden, Accrington and Church in their final six games, Lowerhouse will be seen to have an easier run-in – not playing any of the top five in their final seven league clashes.
Enfield led by two points ahead of the weekend but became joint leaders with Lowerhouse after a close local derby with Rishton who they meet again on Sunday.
Rishton have impressed this season with pro Daniel Salpietro making waves in the Lancashire League with 642 runs and 61 wickets.
He threatened to upset Enfield’s title challenge as he made 57 and then took three wickets in a close encounter at Dill Hall Lane.
Rishton made 203-8 with Mo Patel finishing unbeaten on 42 while Enfield pro Werner Coetsee took 4-70 for the then league leaders.
Enfield struggled in reply as 6-1 became 65-4 and it needed a captain’s show from Adam Bracewell, who hit 70, to get Enfield back on track. Joe Wrigley’s late 36 proved vital to take Enfield over the line with just three overs and four wickets to spare. Salpietro finished with 3-85.
Accrington still harbour hopes of a late dash for the league title and they saw off Nelson to keep them in the chase – although they are 27 points behind the pacesetters.
Accrington might have been worried at 149 all out but it could have been worse as they were 88-8 before a late 46 from Simon Hanson bumped up the score.
But they needn’t have worried as pro Ashar Zaidi then took 6-24 as Nelson were all out for just 86 and Accrington celebrated a comfortable 63-run win.
Church warmed up for their Worsley Cup final on Sunday with a narrow two-wicket victory over East Lancs on Saturday – but it needed a late 23 from wicketkeeper Sam Tucker.
East Lancs were 161 all out with Saeed Anwar finishing on 5-34 and Muhammed Jamil 4-36. Sam Holt (33) and Lloyd Aspin (20) helped to take the score to 71 but then wickets fell quickly with Church in trouble at 8-137.
However Tucker kept his cool alongside Joel Gaskill (14) in a ninth wicket stand to take them over the line.
The teams all meet again this weekend at the opposite venues.
