Bridge pair shine to boost dou­ble hopes

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - CRICKET -

CRICKET: Ryan McKendry and Will Rhodes steered Stam­ford Bridge to a sur­pris­ingly com­fort­able eight wicket win over Har­ro­gate and opened up the chance of league and cup dou­ble that had looked un­likely be­fore the week­end.

Hav­ing opened up the ti­tle race with vic­tory over lead­ers York­shire Academy on Satur­day, Bridge man­aged largely to con­tain the Har­ro­gate bat­ting.

Josh Atkin­son was the ex­cep­tion, mak­ing 72 and shar­ing a stand of 63 with Ben Kem­p­ley (40) and 41 with No10 Tom Gee­son-Brown (23).

The 214-9 to­tal al­ways looked hard to de­fend and even though Har­ro­gate picked up two early wick­ets, they were un­able to part McKendry and Rhodes who came to­gether with the score on 21-2.

Rhodes in­cluded eight fours and two sixes in his 80 with McKendry also pick­ing up two sixes and find­ing the bound­ary 12 times in 100 scored in 98 balls as they reached 216-2 with eight overs in hand.
