2nd XI v Godolphin
Saturday, August 17
The Saturday 2nd XI's promotion bid looks to be in
tatters when they suffered a huge 120-run defeat to league leaders
Godolphin in the top of the table clash in CCA Senior League
Division 1, at The Avenue.
A poor batting display saw March shot out for just
89, with Stuart Mills top-scoring with 21 at No8. There was really
no way back after losing the first three wickets for 13 runs in the
opening overs after tea.
Earlier, the home side had given a good account of
themselves with the ball. Mills took 3-31 and veteran seam bowler
Stuart Arnold snapped up three wickets in four balls for figures of
3-21, as Godolphin were dismissed for 209.
Godolphin 209 all out, 44.3 (Stuart Arnold
3-21, Stuart Mills 3-31, Nuwan Athukorala 2-35. March 2nd XI 89 all
out, 34.4 overs (Stuart Mills 21, Nathan Oliver 17, Anothony Henson
Man of the Match:
We were always going to struggle with players missing against a side
top of the league. They were simply the better side today!
