Devon Tourists Pip Hythe
Rackenford 205-7 H&D 177-9
Hythe hosted Devon touring side Rackenford as part of their 2 match Forest Tour.
Kev Mc invited the tourists to bat first and they rustled up 205 for 7 from their 40 overs. Kev McCarthy, Ojus Rane & Fletch taking two wickets a piece.
On paper 205 was just par but the Devon bowlers bowled well and Hythe could not capitalize on a fine start given to them by Sanderson 16 & Vaughan 23. Hythe went from 40 for 0 to 82 for 6.
Skipper Fletcher & Mossy did start a mini recovery with a partnership of 42 for the 7th wicket. At that point Hythe needed 81 to win off 13 overs.
Moss then run himself out going for a difficult 2nd and he was out for 49. Rane fell same over for a duck ~ 147-9. TJ was enjoying himself and opened up with 5x4s in a unbeaten partnership of 30 at the end with Kev McCarthy. But the Devon side won by 28 runs in a good game.
RESULT : Rackenford Beat H&D XI by 28 runs
