Daisy Hill beat Adlington as Cross Cup clash resumes on Bank Holiday Monday
DAISY Hill went through to the last eight of the Cross Cup on Bank Holiday Monday when their match at Adlington was resumed.
The first-round game was halted on Sunday due to the rain with Daisy on 75-5 in reply to the home side's 120-9.
Adlington got off to a flying start when the game resumed on Monday, pro Majid Majeed trapping Sean Brooks lbw and then bowling Imtiaz Cheema in the first over to leave Daisy on 75-7 just six balls into the day.
The Westhoughton side recovered with Mark Atherton and Steven Kenny both hitting big sixes to ease the tension.
Atherton went on to score 34 not out and Kenny 16 not out to win with nine overs remaining.
Majid took 4-31 off his 18 overs and Ben King 2-30.
On Sunday, Adlington took control of the bat first with last year’s professional Tom Foster top scoring with 57.
Bowlers Steve Hodgkinson and Amjid Khan took 4-24 and 2-37.
The only other game to beat the weather in the competition was holders Atherton's victory over Golborne.
There was no play in any of the other games with Blackrod’s tie with Little Hulton, Elton versus Edgworth, Flixton against Winton, Lostock versus Bury, Walshaw’s home game with Standish and Swinton Moorside’s trip to Worsley all rained off.
The rescheduled ties will now be played on Sunday.
