Will A & George ran well until at 192 Will (40,32b,2x4,2x6) was caught by Smith off Wilkie. George (30*) & Patrick (5*) saw the 64's to a challenging total of 207 after 40 overs.

Disciplined bowling was important & Josephine supplied it with three maidens in her 6 overs & 3 wickets. Lee (6) was lbw at 6. D Taylor (3) was caught by Will A at cover off Archie's left arm medium at 25 & 4 runs later Brown was lbw to Josephine.

This became 33-4 when Wilkie was caught by Simon at second slip off Josephine; 34-5 as Greensit was lbw to Patrick & 38-6 when Patrick bowled Smith (1).

Jones & Jeffrey fashioned a stand of 23 until at 61 Jones (12) was caught by Will C off Will Y at cover. At 63 Archbold (1) was caught by Archie at mid off, the bowler Charlie, 8 down. The final two wickets fell at 77 as the Wills combined to dismiss Jeffrey (23) & B Taylor (0) both caught at cover by Will C off Will Y.

A good team performance & an eventual comprehensive win involving contributions from all the younger players. The 64's now in a very creditable 5th position in WTL Division 1 on 92 points.
