North Herts Schools' U-13 Cricket League (Division 1)
GRENEWAY'S Year 8 cricketers travelled to Nobel in Stevenage looking to re-establish their title credentials after an unexpected loss to Heathcote last week.
After winning the toss they decided to bat with opening batsmen Jackson and Brain, getting off to a steady start before Brain played onto his wicket.
Ingrey joined the fray and immediately set about the Nobel attack. Jackson was then well bowled with an inswinging yorker and then Jones partnered Ingrey. This pairing proved to be pivotal to the Greneway innings, amassing 65 runs.
Scoring 90-6 was a "good knock" in hot conditions and gave Greneway something to work with.
Excellent fielding was the order of the evening for Greneway as Stafford and Dacey took great catches at mid-on and square-on respectively. There were also two impressive run outs involving Bentley and Ingrey and Chapple and Jones.
Nobel could not match Greneway's score and finished on 78-6 as Buntingford looked to limit Theydon's damage.
In reply, Chambers Jnr's score of 53 put his side back on course. Most of his team mates got into double figures with Walker 34 and Chambers Snr hitting 20.
Buntingford finished on a credible 187-8, against a very impressive Theydon side.
Buntingford Second XI v Thaxted
FOLLOWING on from their commanding win last week, Buntingford came crashing back down to earth with a defeat at the hands of Thaxted.
In batting first, Buntingford found the Thaxted bowlers mighty competition and after 25 overs they struggled reaching 39-4 and quickly began to lose wickets, managing only 99-9 off their 45 overs.
When it was their time, the Buntingford bowlers made an impressive start, by dismissing Thaxted's openers Grinham and Taylor without scoring.
They then made it 20-3 after McNamara made a brilliant catch, diving full-length.
However, Thaxted pulled together and did not concede another wicket until they reached 83. Despite Buntingford claiming another two wickets Wood saw Thaxted through to the end with a fine 54 not out.
