Wag­goners’ bowl­ing at­tack comes up shy

Sea­son’s best bat­ting to­tal not enough to see off Down­ley

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

lbw, rapidly fol­lowed by Andy Thomp­son get­ting a top edge to leave Wag­goners 10-2 by the fourth over.

Rollo McIn­tyre and Davies re­built the in­nings be­fore the lat­ter was bowled for 23, Richard O’Kelly made a quick-fire 18, be­fore be­ing caught, as was McIn­tyre with the Ballinger run rate well ahead of Down­ley’s.

It ac­cel­er­ated even fur­ther with the ad­vent of Will Smith at the crease as he smashed two mighty sixes, be­fore be­ing stumped and then Max Dug­dale made 31, be­fore per­ish­ing lbw.

That made it 159 for 7, with 10 overs left, and while Monty Thomp­son fin­ished un­beaten on 29 there was no one left to keep the req­ui­site mo­men­tum up and the in­nings am­bled along to fin­ish on 194-9 when the overs ran out.

Mean­while, Ballinger’s U13s girls were out­gunned by Newport in the eight-a-side re­gional fi­nal.

Ballinger posted a cred­itable 87-3 against very strong ri­vals, but Newport knocked off the runs in 15 overs.
