Bond Timber Cornwall Cricket League Division Two East round-up - Saturday, July 6

LEADERS Werrington eased to another victory on Saturday as they beat neighbours South Petherwin by six wickets at Ladycross.

Petherwin could only muster 130 all out, 83 of which came through number three Andrew Brenton who smashed ten fours and two sixes.

But he received no support as of the rest, only Kevin Horrell with 12 reached double figures.

Werrington captain Jason Seldon ran through the middle and lower order for figures of 6-16 from just 4.3 overs, while Ian Searle kept up his fine form with 2-31 from his nine.

Werrington were home in the 27th over despite two wickets apiece for Paul Clements (2-24) and Adrian Clements as Dan Howgill (22no) and Billy Uglow (44no) got the job done.

Callington Seconds remain third after easing past Bude by 68 runs at Moores Park.

Richard Brown (33) and Alex Robinson (61) laid the foundation for Ollie Allsop to blast 64 from just 50 balls as they posted 220-8.

Off-spinner Matt Williams took 3-58, while Brett Hunter chipped in with 2-52.

Bude were missing several regulars and mustered just 152 in reply. Williams made 31 at the top of the order with James Turner and Brett Hunter making 20 each.

Callington’s bowling was led by Brown (3-17) and Jim Shorten (3-16) who both went at less than two an over.

St Minver returned to winning ways with a six-wicket success at North Cornwall rivals Tintagel.

The hosts batted first and when Tom Parsons (52) and Akobe Earle (54) both made 50, a score well in excess of 250 looked on.

But although Jordan Burnard made 29, the rest struggled as they closed on 202-8.

South African Reece Thompson bowled superbly for his 4-35, while Rob Hawken (2-34) chipped in.

In reply, openers Ben Hawken and Antony Ash (31) added 64, but with 47 extras being sent down by the hosts, runs kept coming.

Alek Gill’s 25 and Reece Thompson was 14 not out at the end, but it was Hawken that was key as he finished 78 not out.

Parsons completed a decent all-round game with 2-43 from eight overs, while Gyles Reynolds (1-37) was tight.

Holsworthy have been in good form recently, but they were blown away at St Blazey despite 100 not out from wicket-keeper Chris Pomeroy.

He faced 126 balls and struck 14 fours and a six in an innings which saw the visitors finish on 177-9 from their 45 overs.

Of the rest, only Aiden Gerry with 21 passed twenty in a below-par display.

The fast darts of Rory Dixon proved devastating as he took 6-32 from his eight overs, while Nithin Gowda’s 4-15 from nine was equally as impressive.

The key to beating St Blazey is getting their top three out, but they knocked off the runs in 35.3 overs.

Dixon added 20 to his six-wicket haul before falling to Jack Greening, but it wasn’t until 116 that the next wicket fell when Ben Griffiths was bowled for 50 by Dan Smith (1-29).

But the ever-impressive Matt Bennetts kept going and finished unbeaten on 85 from 84 deliveries as he and Paul Carne (14no) saw them home.

Only Smith and Herschelle Poggenpoel (0-30) kept the runs down.

Elsewhere in the division, second-placed St Austell thrashed Lanhydrock by 172 runs.

They posted 277-9 with Archie Connolly (63) and Ryan Bennetts (57) making half centuries, before the strugglers were shot out in no time despite an unbeaten 42 from Josh Taylor.

Promising seamer Jack Carter took 5-26 from seven overs.

Ladock won by 77 runs at Menheniot-Looe having posted 245-6.
