H&D 3s had a day to forget at Thornberry Avenue against old enemies Fawley 2s.
On a wicket that was helped by the overnight rain ~ Fawley inserted Ryan O'Connors side and swiftly shot them out for 51 in just 22 overs.
Players refused to blame the wicket but a genuine lapse in their batting. Only Jamie Fletcher 10 made it into double figures. Teenager Zac Bowen took 4-14 for the Oilers.
Hythe however gave it a good go with the ball ~ opening bowlers Tony O'Connor & Martin Duell both producing fine spells. TOC got rid of Shepherd & Lloyd Coxall early and finished with figures of 2-8 0ff 8 overs. Lenny failed to take a wicket but enjoyed figures of 0-14 off 8.
Kev McCarthy got the only other wicket to fall ~ having John Painter judged LBW for 16. But the Oilers won by 7 wkts with 20 overs remaining.
