v South Petherwin (A)

Batted better but defeat again

Boconnoc made the trip up to South Pethwerin this previous Saturday and were aiming for a win to start the second half of their season, after narrowing losing to this opposition early on in the season. Batting first Michael Blake and Keith Sturgess opened up and put on 26, before Sturgess was caught. Batting at three, John Sleep (30) and Blake put on a decent stand together to get the side up to their 2nd batting point. Petherwin had to juggle with their attack as Steve Drew picked up an injury mid over. In all it was a better batting performance from Boconnoc compared to the week before, with six batsmen scoring 20 or more, Blake's 46 was the highest for them on the day. At the end of the 50 overs, the scoreboard read Boconnoc, 229 for 8.

The South Petherwin reply got off to an eventful start as Digby Taylor could of picked up a wicket with the first ball but a think edge went for a four over the slips instead. Will Geach would pick up a wicket with his first ball to remove the other opener with a catch by keeper Rob Foot. Unfortuanely, Boconnoc weren't able to take regular wickets until a mini-flurry at the end which gave their effort some more respectability in terms of the final scores as Pethwerwin got to the required target after losing 6 wickets but still with a hand full of overs in hand.

Boconnoc 1st XI - Michael Blake, Keith Sturgess, John Sleep, Ian Hunter (capt), Gary Spencer, Digby Taylor, Rob Foot (wk), Will Geach, Kevin Spencer, Simon Terry, Matt Frith
