Sporting Alfas Cricket Club Lost by three wickets

Match report Wednesday, April 9th

SACC MW 198-7 (35 overs)
J. Braithwaite's XI 199-7 (35 overs)

Last Wednesday's 50th birthday 35-over beer match saw the home skipper win the toss and bat first on a slightly chilly and overcast day. Guest schoolboy openers McNeill Adams and Johnson started steadily, adding 41 for the first wicket before McNeill Adams fell caught behind to the accurate Antcliffe for 15 in the ninth over. Johnson reached 28 before he fell to the same bowler four overs later. The MW middle order - Marriner (17), Perrins (43) and Norton (15) - took the score to 134-6 with seven overs remaining. A rapid 60+ partnership between Westminister's Stewart (15) and Scott (50 not out) completed the innings in fine style and set the tourists a highly respectable target of 199 to win. The useful Antcliffe (45), in partnerships with Howard (16), Aldren (40), Hill Senior (16) and Makinson (26), took the total to within 47 of victory with 18 balls remaining. Three remarkable overs later, after some mighty hitting from Hill Junior (31 not out) in a brief innings that included
four fours, two huge sixes as well as the final three runs required from the last ball, ensured the visitors had plenty more to celebrate well into the wee small hours.
