De Silva spin earns Westgate win

Boy does he not fail to amaze us every week...

Westgate A won for the first time this season yesterday at Cross Hill Park by 47 runs.

Captain Dave Hannigan won the toss and elected to bat as always, and the side got off to a really good start. Chris Carter (16) and Jacob Vaughan (28) put on 41 runs for the first wicket. Jacob even had an LBW decision overruled by square-leg umpire Derek Metcalfe early in the innings (good job Ann uses a pencil in the scorebook). The second wicket partnership was even more fruitful with Vaughan and Webster (39) making a quick fire 48 to keep the scoreboard ticking.

After drinks, Vaughan, Webster and Hannigan (19) were dismissed with all making valuable contributions. This was soon followed by a middle-order collapse with the score going from 111-4 to 124-9. Beaumont (4-16) was really effective with the ball for Kirkby Lonsdale and he was able to remove the wickets of Conroy, Hollywood and Main very cheaply in addition to his dismissal of Hannigan. Main (0) and Parrott (2*) put on four runs for the last wicket and the hosts were bowled all out for 128 from 41.5 overs.

Westgate got an early breakthrough after tea with the first wicket falling after just three runs, with Vaughan's (3-7) first wicket of the game. De Silva (4-32) shocked his fellow players by bowling spin, and this proved to be very effective as he took four wickets in a spell that was very entertaining to watch. Kirkby Lonsdale's best partnership was the fourth wicket partnership, by which S.Williams (15) and Beaumont (19) put on 31 runs. The wickets fell relatively quickly in the middle order, with Watson's (6) dismissal being very aesthetically pleasing. Watson edged the ball off Conroy's bowling, and wicket-keeper Chris Carter took an outstanding diving catch - much to the surprise of his team-mates. Youngster Bradshaw (1) and Royce (12) batted well to provide some resistance and give the away side a glimmer of hope in their quest for a draw. James Main removed this glimmer of hope however as he ran out Bradshaw to put Hannigan's side on the verge of victory. The final wicket fell when Vaughan came on to bowl again for his second spell and he removed Royce LBW to secure the 15 points.

Up next for Westgate A is Ingleton away from home on Saturday 20th May.
