Carlisle Cricket Club is keeping the semi-final of the Lukey's Sports T20 tournament in their sights, despite back to back losses against Keswick this past weekend.

Carlisle's First Team made the trip to Keswick on Saturday to meet the in-form home team in two T20 cricket games.

The latest Premier Division North West games make up a tournament with the two dominant teams facing-off in a Cumbrian final on September 5.

Carlisle's offence was depleted following an early injury that sidelined all-rounder Paul Hindmarch.

Keswick's Glen Weightman put in a strong performance, racking up a combined fourteen sixes in his two innings that totalled 126, on a baking afternoon at Fitz Park.

It was an entertaining day of cricket nonetheless, Josh Sterling aged 14 impressed in his First Team debut for Carlisle and he was the pick of the visitors attack, returning figures of 2-27 and 1-25.

Carlisle are holding out hope for a win against Keswick tomorrow which would keep them in the qualifying group for September.

In what is sure to be an entertaining contest, Keswick and Carlisle will clash again at the Edenside ground in 40 overs.

Wigton, who face Carlisle on September 22, were successful in both of their contests against Penrith.

Carlisle's third team and academy sides saw success last weekend at Edenside.

On Saturday August 3, captain Will Bell won the toss and elected to bat in blistering conditions, and his side set Langholm a target of 156, with Nathan McStay racking up 72 runs, Patrick Muldoon contributing 26 and Peter Gower putting up 14.

Langholm in reply, struggled to 79 all out as Bell returned excellent figures of 5-24 and Ollie Short an outstanding 3-9.

Carlisle sit at the top of EVCL North B, three points clear of Lanercost 2nd XI.

Carlisle’s academy side hosted Wigton's Third Team on Sunday, who won the toss and elected to bat.

The home attack limited the visitors to 103 all out, as William Teasdale, Harry Mclinden and Matthew Smith picked up a brace of wickets each.

The hosts wrapped up a 3 wicket win as Harvey Tiffen hit his way to 48 in an innings that included eight boundaries
