Honours even as ri­vals open with tie

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - BILL LIVESLEY

PREST­BURY and Hale Barnes fought out a rare tied game on the open­ing day of the cam­paign.

Prest­bury were asked to bat and, led by Myles Ma­son ( 66) they made 171- 8 off 45 overs with good sup­port from over­seas player Ju­lian Mc­Gov­ern ( 41).

Hale Barnes looked on course to chase down the to­tal with ease at one stage.

But with Matty Gray tak­ing 4-36, backed up by Kevin Mur­ray with 3-30, Hale Barnes ended on 171-9 at the end of their 45 overs, re­sult­ing in a tie.
