Sat 11 Sept, Cae Glas II v Beacon III

Having won the toss Beacon had  no hesitation in asking Cae Glas to bat first.  This looked to be a good decision with Cae Glas losing a wicket to the 3rd ball. Paul Ashton starting an excellent spell of bowling eventually taking 2-13. In a game of fluctuating fortunes Cae Glas recovered with a stand of 46 thanks to 34 from Nigel Evans.  WIckets then fell at regular intervals and at 81-4 at the drinks break the game was evenly poised. the loss of the  5th wicket soon after brought together the experienced pair of Ian Moult (33) and Andy Kemp (31 not out) who contributed an invaluable stand of 56 as Cae Glas posted a tantalising score of 153-7.

Despite losing 2 early wickets James Bovill set about the bowling in 20/20 fashion and at Drinks Beacon stood at 112-2  and looked set for an easy victory. All change as he was trapped lbw for a magnificent 79 by the impressive Gareth Overthrow who finished with 2-21.  The complexion of the game changed again and it was now the turn of Beacon to lose wickets. With 7 wickets down the game was once again evenly poised but sensible batting and a few invaluable boundaries by James Hanna Davies with 20 not out saw Beacon to a tense 3 wicket victory in another excellent game of cricket.  

Final league game next Saturday is away at table topping Quatt.
