Cricket: Sunday XI take HCCC close in rainy thriller
Posted on June 8, 2011
The Bray Sunday Superstars travelled to the picturesque Hawridge and Cholesbury CC on Sunday, hoping to build on their good efforts from the previous week.
Bray won the toss and fielded first, and good bowling efforts kept HCCC to 208-5, a very short boundary on one side meaning boundaries were easily scored throughout the innings. Good bowling performances from Joe Roff, 0-25 from 8 overs, Louis Peek, 2-18 from 5 overs and Ryan Peacock 2-19 from 4 overs.
An excellent tea followed, (easily the best tasted, as told by Jacob) and then it was Bray's turn to bat. An opening stand of 44 from Peacock and Barker meant things got off to a good start before Jacob was out for 4. Enter Adam Harvey, with no cricket in him for over a year set about scoring quickly as another strong partnership (57 runs) was made between him and Peacock, until the latter was stumped on 59.
Harv ended up with a Bray best of 33, and a few quick wickets followed, until numbers 6 and 7 Ryan and Matt put on 51 between them. Both batsmen fell in quick succession with 31 being needed off 3 overs as the scoring slowed somewhat.
A few good late hits from Louis Peek took Bray to 185-8, just coming up short once again! Another very good performance from the young Bray lads, where only one player was over the age of 25.
