Rain halts big Westgate chase

In the words of Jacob Vaughan, 'we were gonna reach 180' and Hughesie's modified saying of 'something always happens after rain'

Westgate and Coniston shared the points on a wet afternoon at Cross Hill Park today.

Coniston won the toss and elected to bat on a grassy wicket accompanied by humid conditions. The hosts managed to get an early breakthrough with Sam Conroy (2-47) removing opener Warne (1) caught and bowled. This was followed by a few missed chances, with some dropped catches in the field and the away side began to ease into the game. Bob Simpson (54) and Wilkinson (18) put on a partnership worth 41 runs until Wilkinson was out LBW off the bowling of Sam Conroy in the 13th over. Shortly afterwards, the rain came and the two sides went into the sheds for a half an hour stoppage. When the sides returned to field, Coniston pushed on with the bat adding an extra 35 runs for the third wicket. There was then another 20 minute break for rain at which point the sides took tea, and soon after the break Bob Simpson was dismissed with an edge to keeper Chris Carter off the bowling of Hannigan (1-30), and this appeared to be a crucial wicket as the experienced batsman had scored exactly two-thirds of his side's score at this point. If anything, this was crucial to Coniston as S.Alty (45) came in and put on a big partnership worth 92 runs off just eight overs with M.Burton (48). Westgate finally broke the partnership when James Main ran out Alty, and then in the next over David Hughes (1-6) dismissed Burton LBW. Coniston declared on 179-5 off 31 overs, supposedly giving Westgate 43 overs to chase the total.

Openers Chris Carter (13*) and Jacob Vaughan (10*) started really well, scoring 26 from the first five overs before rain kicked in again. With visibility poor, the umpires decided to abandon the game and the sides shared six points each.

Next week, the second string face Ambleside away from home.
