Defeat at the hand of the Stags.

By

A close encounter but a lack of top order runs, a dropped catch and an injured back ultimately the difference.

The second team stint at the top of the league came to an end only a week after it began at the hands of a strong Toft team. An interesting wicket and batting first against a good bowling attack. Griff and Jamo too to the task but both fell to Cornes in uncharacteristic fashion. Ian in at 3 and looking to knuckle down but George out hooking for 4. Wiggy smites a few to the fence and but was caught at mid off and at 43 for 4, some serious crease occupation was in order. Luckily Karl Stedman and Ian Metcalf have experience and did a good job of staying in. Neither wanting to give their wicket away. Karl and Ian were out in quick succession and then Sam for a second ball duck. 91 for 7 and batting points still distant. Dan Riley and Dave Atkin played sensibly. Some super drives for 4 but also some stout defines. The pair added 43 before the skipper was bowled for 34 but perhaps more importantly left the field with a back in spasm: unable to bowl. Atlo (30) continued to push the score on before Fishy (17*) and Charlie used up the overs remaining not out (Charlie even managing a 4 off his lid).

Tea and the need for quick wickets more important than ever. Griff leading out the troops and Fish opening the bowling. Tight lines and good pace from Sam induced a false shot from the dangerous Stubbs who was caught for just 15.Charlie teamed up with Fish and the squeeze was on. Both took wickets to leave the score 58 for 5 and then Bones skied one...it went down and the game swung back towards Toft. A 90 run partnership ultimately won the game for Toft despite some super bowling. Sam came back to nip a couple more out and Griff got his first wicket in a few seasons but Toft got home 8 down in the 48th over.

50 runs and a slow bowler light. Good game played in good spirits but a loss all the same. Hyde at home next week at the halfway mark.
