Fridays Twenty20 versus Burnley was a wash out without a ball being bowled. The same fate struck the Fourth team on Saturday versus Haslingden at home.

Dec Stansfield put a match winning performance in for the second team on Sunday though, bowling East Lancs out for 66. Dec got a career best (and best by a Lowerhouser this season) of 9.3 overs 8 wickets for just 16 runs. Haggers and Henri Cottam knocked the runs off in just 15 overs (with a help of 24 extras!) and 12 points were in the bag. The second team sit nicely in 3rd place in the league. Full scorecard here

Paddy starred with the ball taking 5 wickets. House won on run rate after the rain stopped play, they were well ahead on Duckworth Lewis at 69-1 off 22. Full scorecard here
