Stoolball: The Mixed played at Scorpions last Tuesday [15th] with the hosts batting first. Excellent fielding resulted in a run out in the 1st over with just 11 runs on the board and then in the 4th over Richard Apps [1-6] clean bowled Mark . Another run out in the 5th over and a wicket for Melinda Mackay [1-4] aided with a catch by Keith Apps saw the hosts struggling on 46-4 and when JJ Boast[1-5] took a wicket in the next over helped with a catch from Richard it was 51-5. Tight bowling kept the hosts to singles before the 6th wicket went down to Graham Clark [1-13] as he held onto a catch from his own bowling while excellent fielding again resulted in 2 run out’s. Josh Lewis[1-8] took a catch from his bowling while Abigail Fifield [1-22] took the last wicket as the hosts finished on 101 all out. The reply was solid with 37 on the board before Melinda was bowled and just 1 run later Josh was caught. Abigail  went in the 4th over and Ian Kitson  was caught in the 5th over. The 6th over saw Claire Hatter  caught and then Penny Clark was bowled in the next over but skipper Richard  pushed the score to 88 before he was caught. Sarah Clark  and Keith  took us past the hosts total before Sarah was caught and then a JJ  and Graham [0n.o.] finished our innings on 126 all out for a 25 run victory. Last Sunday[20th] the Mixed team played at Crowhurst Tournament with Scorpions our first opponents in a five over match. Ian Kitson [1-11] took a wicket with his 6th ball while Melinda Mackay[1-13] aided by a catch from Ian had our opponents reeling on 11-2 but a third wicket partnership of 55 between Jackie and Pete [23n.o.] was broken when Josh Lewis[1-15] caught and bowled Jackie as they ended on 67-3. An opening partnership of 50 between Josh[40n.o.] and Sophie Turner gave us the foundation for a 4 run win with Melinda [8n.o.]. Our next opponents were Brightling and batting first Josh  and Sophie put on 48 before Josh was caught and two balls later Sophie was run out and then we lost wickets quickly with Ian , Melinda  failing to add much to the score and finally Keith Apps [1n.o.] and Claire Hatter [1n.o.] completed our innings on 60-4. Our bowling and fielding let us down as James and Sarah passed our total before Josh [1-12] bowled James and good fielding led to Sarah being run out in the next ball as Brightling won by 32 runs. Our last game was against Pett and when Kieth was bowled on the 5th ball it did not look good but Melinda  and Ian  steadied the innings with a 44 run partnership before Sophie [2n.o.] and Josh [9n.o.] completed our innings on 71. Keith[1-10] aided by a catch from Sophie took the first wicket but a second wicket partnership of 52 between Sandra  and Mark [25n.o.] took the score to 59 before Mark was run out and good fielding led to another run out the next ball but Lynn[5n.o.] joined Sandra to give Pett a win by 1 run. The Mixed team are away to Hooe on Tuesday [29th] at 6.45p.m.
