Princes Risborough v Harefield Cricket Club Saturday 2nd XI on Sat 04 Sep 2010 at 12.30pm
Harefield Cricket Club Won by 110 runs

Match report 2s seal league title with easy win....

We began the day requiring just 6 points to claim the division 4a championship. We were invited to bat first on what looked like a decent pitch which meant 150 runs was all that we needed to seal first place. Macca & Scotty opened up but Scotty fell early for 12. Lappers went in at 3 looking for a repeat of his century against Princes Risborough earlier in the season. After offering a regulation chance to 1st slip which went down very early in his innings, the light sabre was unleashed and a number of slaps through and over cover were played. At the other end Macca was going serenely along, looking to maintain his 100+ average for the season. Macca passed 50 for the 8th time this season, shortly followed by Lappers. Lappers then accelerated but finally departed for 76 (taking his tally against Prices Risborough to 191!), but not before the 150th run was scored. The skipper joined Macca and the declaration came shortly after with the score on 200 and Macca ending with another 73 runs (and a red ink - obviously!) to his name.

Tea wasn't quite ready so after a quick team photo we took the field for a short 10 over session. The old ball was taken and Scott & Wobbs opened up, much to the annoyance of Dan Evans who was worrying (somewhat unnecessarily I think) that Scott would end up taking his bowling trophy away from him. On a perfect pitch for spinners, they both took two wickets apiece and tea was taken with Princes Risborough 4 down. The call for the new ball was happily received by Wobbles which meant he could tuck into tea as only he can. Upon taking the field, Dan & Quinny had a brief spell each, taking another 3 wickets between them. Greg & Tucker were then given an opportunity to get into the game, which Tucker accepted by taking the 8th wicket. Unfortunately birthday boy Greg was to remain wicketless and after an annoying last wicket partnership, Dan was brought back to wrap the game up and he duly obliged by taking the final wicket with the score on 90.

So, a 110 run win was acheived and more importantly, 1st place!!

Congratulations to everyone who played in the two's this season - a great team effort. Special mention must go to Macca (773 runs @ 110) & Dan (24 wkts @ 15) on winning the batting & bowling trophies.

Bring on 2011.
