Camborne lose unbeaten record at Callington
A game to forget but Camborne still remain top
Camborne arrived at a damp and drizzly Callington but play still started at the usual 1pm. Callington won the toss and elected to bat on a tricky looking pitch. After a couple of missed catches from dopey Hosking, Dan Hocking took control of the game, clean bowling 4 batsman to leave the score at 65-6 at the halfway point, Hocking finished with figures of 4-21 from his 10 overs. Australian Adam Welcome(23) & Chris Davies(28) then dug in and added a crucial 54 runs before spinner Sage Masher took 2 quick wickets(2-41), Callington then added a few more frustrating runs and were eventually bowled out for 155 from 45.5 overs, 38 extras boosting their score.
In reply and with a little sun, Camborne suffered an early collapse to be 7-3, Kevin Roberts(18) and Liam Weeks(32) steadied things before another flurry of wickets left the score at 47-7. Ryan Downing(22) & Matt Hewitt(28) gave Camborne an outside chance of claiming the win but unfortunately more wickets fell to see Camborne fall short on 125. Callington bowled well as a unit with Jim Shorten(4-23) & Chris Davies(3-26) doing the damage. The fancy dress selections could have been the best thing the team did all day :) The Roskear side claimed 8 points and still remain top of County 1, Newquay visit Roskear this coming Saturday. The current results for "singer of the day" are Endean 38%, Downing 24%, Weeks Snr 23%, Pooley 15%, lines close at midnight Wednesday.
