FOLLOWING their excellent performance at Hitchin Boys School, Greneway's Year 7 cricketers needed to maintain their momentum at home to another Hitchin school - Priory.
On a sunny, warm and calm evening they won the toss and in confident mood decided to bat.
From the very first balls skipper Toby Fynn and Jack Beck looked to get on top of the Priory bowlers and dominate proceedings.
With good shot selection, excellent stroke play, and superb running between the wickets, Greneway were soon in complete control at 31 without loss after three overs.
Disappointing shots from Beck and then Addison gave the visitors a glimmer of hope but Fynn and Smith soon put an end to it.
At 81-2, Fynn retired and Heginbottom took over with two exquisite fours in quick succession.

With the Priory bowlers struggling with their line and length, Richardson was also able to plunder some good runs as Smith was also retired unbeaten on 20.
Greneway eventually amassed 164-2 from their allotted 20 overs, a huge target.
Such an impressive total enabled skipper Fynn to use all his bowlers and experiment with field placings.
Consistent line and length were the targets for the home players, making Priory earn every run.
They had the visitors all out for 42, with a combination of good bowling, excellent pressure fielding and superb teamwork.
