LAMPHEY v NARBERTH II
match sponsored by
Lamphey (166 for 8) drew with
Narberth (125 for 7)
An entertaining game
took place at Lamphey on Saturday as 6th
placed Lamphey welcomed 5th
2nds. The game was evenly poised throughout as either
side could have won this encounter; however in the end a
draw was probably just about right.
Gibbs losing the toss the home side were asked to bat.
Johnson got the side off to a flyer scoring 10 off the
first 4 balls but was then sent back to the hutch as he
was bowled on the 5th
delivery of the day.
This brought McGilloway to the crease and with Trimarco
the pair batted sensibly adding 66 for the second wicket
before Trimarco departed for a patient and mature 39.
Brunton at 4 was unlucky to be caught out of the deep
mid wicket boundary for 4 with the score on 98, then
Skeels skied one as he was caught for 10. Shelmerdine
playing his first game of the season in at 6 came and
went without troubling the scorer and the Stags found
themselves 5 down for 117. McGilloway who had played
well and looked set for a total brought up a much
deserved 50 (6x4, 3x6) but he was next to go with the
score on 120. Hathaway scored 3 and the score which once
looked like a 200+ total now looked anything but as the
home side slipped from 117 for 3 to 126 for 7. With
depth in the batting order Blackwell at 7 and Gibbs at 9
pushed on as the overs ticked by and the pair added 30
for the 8th
wicket before Gibbs was run out
for 6 to a tight single in the 39th
Cole in at 10 and Blackwell added a further 10 runs from
the last 7 balls as the innings closed on 166 for 8.
Blackwelll weighing in with a useful 27 not out and Cole
6 not out.
In response Narberth got off to a flyer as Cole and
Brunton failed to make an impact. After 6 overs both
openers were brought off as the visitors had taken the
score to 40. The Stags had to wait another 22 runs
before they finally made the breakthrough as Trimarco
took a catch off the bowling of Blackwell to dismiss
Spratt for 17. 3 runs later the second wicket fell as
Gibbs trapped Nicholas LBW for 1. Next to go for the
visitors was Johns whom was superbly run out by a
Shelmerdine direct hit to leave Narberth on 77 for 3.
With the Stags stifling the flow of runs Gibbs turned to
Skeels as the home side went with spin from both ends
and in only his second over Skeels senior with the aid
of a smart Johnson stumping saw Jenkins dismissed for 4
with the score on 85. Gibbs then struck twice on 88 as
he firstly bowled the dangerous Williams for 41 then
Johnson took his stumpings tally to 2 with Norcross
going for 0. With the game slowly ebbing away from the
visitors grasp Webb offered a glimmer of hope, however
his innings of 18 came to an end thanks to a superb
catch at square leg by Hathaway off the bowling of
McGilloway. With tight bowling from the home side only a
further 4 runs were scored from the remaining 7 overs as
Narberth ended the game 41 runs short of victory on 125
Star Man – Pete McGilloway – a richly
deserved 50 and wicket for the all rounder
