CRICKET: Chadlington beat rain, but lose out
Updated 3:22pm Wednesday 28th May 2014 in Sport
Chadlington may have defeated the weather, but they couldn’t get the better of Garsington who moved up to third in Division 1 of the OCA League with a home victory.
Only three games in the entire league beat the showers, two of those matches coming in the top flight.
Garsington’s home clash with Chadlington was restricted to 40 overs a side, the visitors setting a total of 160-7, Richard Ingram top-scoring with 47.
After a poor start, the Garsington middle-order of Ywai Williams (71) and Jefter Andrews (45) got to work, taking their side to the brink of victory before both getting out.
However, they soon secured a four-wicket victory in the 26th over.
Garsington 28pts, Chadlington 6 Eynsham 2nd won by nine wickets at Chesterton 2nd in Division 9.
The hosts were bowled out for 96, Stephen Cooper (4-14) and Gary Cook (4-15) on song for Eynsham.
Luke Bowles was then undefeated on 39 as Eynsham eased home, Cook adding 23 not out in a fine all-round display.
