League - May 20th Only two
games were completed, with three abandoned and one rained off early in the day.
However, one of these two games produced the tightest finish
possible as, having put Alford in to bat, Lindum were left chasing what seemed
a modest 93. On a pitch affected by the
wet weather, it was the spinners who dominated, Tom Lindsay taking six of the
visitors' wickets for 23. But Alford
also had the bowlers for the conditions, Rikki Bovey and Andrew White making
steady headway into the Lindum lineup.
The first two wickets fell for six runs and when the ninth went with the
home side still needing 35, Alford scented victory.
Jake Benson, who had earlier taken three wickets, was at the
crease with eight to his name as former skipper James Kempton came out to join
him and this pairing resisted the bowlers' efforts, pushing the score along and
eventually securing a one wicket win to move their team into third place in the
Boston also moved up a place to ninth with their second win
of the season after Market Deeping lost seven wickets for nine runs. Having been put in to bat, Deeping set off
well, Josh Smith hitting 43 and sharing a second wicket partnership of 55 with
David Sargeant. At 144-3 the
visitors were looking to set Boston a sizeable challenge.
But Tim Bell took six wickets in quick
succession to bowl Deeping out for 153 and finish with 7-28 off 12
overs, Tom Poole claiming five wicketkeeping dismissals and Sargeant making 64.
Boston got off to a bad start, losing three wickets for only
26 runs before Fayadh Haffejee and Michael Musson got together in a stand of
103. Haffejee was out for 58 but this
was Deeping's last success as Musson and Tom Baxter saw their side to victory.
The other three games survived part of the afternoon, while Louth v
Sleaford was called off early in the day.
