Cricket: Win for the 2nds!!
Posted on July 25, 2011
After a tough introduction to div 3 cricket and several recent narrow loses the Bray 2nds finally completed their first win of the season and in doing so began to close the gap on their relegation rivals.
After winning the toss and electing to bowl, the Bray got off a a good start with Coughtrey (2-32) and Roff (1-14) both bowling their 10overs straight thru as Stewkley found it difficult to get going. Only a hard hit 62 by Drakes got the scoreboard moving as Kerins (3-38) kept the pressure on and after 44overs the Bray were left with a target of 160 to win.
In reply despite the early loses of Warner, Smith and Ringsell a huge partnership between Gypps and Kerins (81) got the chase going and when Kerins was out with only a few runs needed it was left to Gypps to hit the winning runs and complete his fifty in the process.
An excellent result that left skipper Kerins full of praise for his team and later full of alcohol as he was finally able to celebrate a win. His excitment was tempered towards the end of the night, as without a taxi he was left wandering the streets of Bedfordshire...
