Cokenach IIs off bottom of the table

CCA Junior League 6B

Cokenach 129-9 (40 overs)

Linton III 118

Cokenach won by 11 runs

COKENACH IIs won their first match of the season with an 11-run victory over Linton IIIs to lift themselves off the bottom of the table.

Cokenach batted first and Badger Cresswell (41) and Nik Eve (15) got them off to a good start as they reached 59 without loss. However a collapse then ensued as the Cokenach batsmen struggled for runs with only Collins (14) and Dale Paxton (14) reaching double figures. They eventually went on to post a modest 129-9 from their 40 overs.

Cokenach opened the attack with Collins (1-43) and Ford, who bowled an excellent spell for figures of 2-5 off his six overs.

Ford was replaced by Taylor who took 3-28 off his 10 overs, with a big helping hand from Man of the Match Cresswell, taking all three catches.

The pressure was maintained on the Linton batsmen with a strategy of short sharp bowling spells from Cresswell, Law and Ford, on for his second spell, before Cattley was introduced to mop-up the final wicket off his third delivery. Mumford, however, had set up the win with a wonderful piece of fielding, taking the penultimate wicket by running out Campbell for six.
