Chris Till (27) top scored for Arnside 2nds, but tight spells by Brad Bental (3/23) and Richard Marshall (3/19) restricted the home side to 118/8.

With Lee Pidgeon (3/21) bowling tightly, Leven Valley found batting no easier, but George Needham (25) and nerves of steel from Josh Galloway (17 not out) got them to the target with 1 wicket remaining.

David Amor (39) and David Hones (36 not out) sealed an 8 wicket win for Silverdale 2nds. Sam Lister made an impressive 72 not out from 99 balls (7 fours and 2 sixes) for Carnforth 3rds, but new Milnthorpe 2nds captain, Bob Baldwin took 6/41 to restrict the home team to 154.

At 27/4 Milnthorpe were struggling, but Gavin Kellett (43) led a revival before Baldwin (22 not out) completed the 2 wicket win with only 3 balls remaining. Zach Dodds took 3/22.
