JACK O’Brien was among the wickets again as Unsworth enjoyed back-to-back victories last weekend, by nine wickets at home to Radcliffe and by 10 wickets at Oldham, respectively.
Radcliffe made a healthy start on Saturday with with Martin Coates scoring 39 at a brisk rate. But O’Brien put the brake on taking two wickets in successive balls to put Unsworth on top at 37-2.
O’Brien finished his spell with 3-32 before Liam Richards took over to remove the Radcliffe lower order and tail, finishing with 4-11 as the visitors were dismissed for 114.
Unsworth openers Jon Wiggans and Jeff Keyt did the bulk of the work, scoring 33 and 51 not out, respectively, before Chris Long joined Keyt at the crease for the Dragons to coast home in 25 overs.
Bad weather reduced Sunday’s game at Oldham to a 20-over contest in which O’Brien again made light work of the opposition taking 5-28 with Williams (4-29) sharing in the wickets.
Oldham were bowled out for 67 inside 19 overs and in reply Wiggans finished unbeaten on 49 and with Keyt spearheaded the Dragons to another five-point win.
