2's fall short at Otley

Bad day with bat & ball as Otley dominate

Mixed weather greeted Pool as they visited Otley in the hope that they could do the double over last years’ champions. With a strong side out, confidence was high and as the clouds parted, Otley won the toss and decided to have a bowl on a sticky deck.

With Coops up in the first team, Cameron Duncan opened up with Oliver Eaves. After a positive start, Cam was the first to fall with 10 on the board, thanks to a decent low down catch by Michael Jordan at mid wicket. Mark Wilkinson was in at 3, and began the rebuilding job with Eavesy. Things were ticking along pretty well with 27 on the board when a bowling change saw George Huntley bowl Eavesy with his first delivery. The skipper came in at 4 but was only able to add 5 before being bowling by Mick Gray. Richard Carlton then joined Trev in the middle with 42 on the board and this pair started to move things along nicely until Mark managed to pick out the man at mid-wicket from a long hop to depart for 34. Shortly after, Carlts was sent on his way after being adjudged LBW to Gray with one that he clearly hit. Still, 72 for 4 was a decent foundation for a competitive total with a batting order that stretched all the way to 11. 4 runs later, Dibby had come & gone for 0 and all of a sudden at 76 for 6 things were looking a bit dicey. Dan Hewer was only able to add 5 before being dismissed LBW by Gray whilst Rupert Wyard dug in at the other end. Jimmy Carlton, in at 9, could only add 2 before getting one that popped from Gray that he could only fend off to Davy behind the stumps. 86 for 8 became 87 for 9 when Matthew Naylor was triggered LBW from the bowling of Huntley with a delivery that barely registered an appeal, which brought last man Jamie Wilkinson in to join Rupert. The pair managed to creep the total along to 102 before Rupert was bowled by Hanson for 8. A disappointing total given the strength of the side.

Matthew Naylor and Jamie Wilkinson took the new ball in the defence of the below par total, looking for early wickets. Starting off for Otley were Graeme Wolfenden and George Huntley. Both batsmen started positively, with Huntley in particular pouncing on anything slightly loose. With 18 on the board, Jamie made the first breakthrough, asking the question to one that struck Wolfenden on the pads somewhere roughly in the region on the stumps. Predictably the decision went in favour of the bowler and Wolfy had to go for 5. Jake Toulson came in to join Huntley in the middle, and at times was merely a spectator as Huntley, aided at times by some unusually off-the-mark bowling, dominated the game by dispatching every bowler to the boundary with ease. Dibby, Rupert and Dan all had a go, and the second wicket eventually came with just 2 runs needed for victory. Huntley, by now on 70, went for a big one to finish things off but could only sky it where, after a little confusion, Eavesy was able to take the catch and give Pool their first point of the game. A few balls later, it was all over with Otley taking 19 points.

All in all, a pretty bad day out for the 2’s. Next week sees another tough game as we welcome Beckwithshaw to Arthington Lane.
