U13s Secure First Win In Style
By Steve Chiverton
Sway B 107-7 H&D 108-0
On a pleasant sunny evening Hythe took on The Sway B side who were only recently set up ~ so a chance finally to play someone of equal strength.
Sway were boosted however with the inclusion of A team player and Hampshire's Ollie Marshall.
Skipper Joe ignored the Sway coaches comments that they were a new side and quickly put them into bat. Callum Symonds enjoyed himself with two early wickets though for the 3rd time this season the first ball of the game went for a boundary.
Alex batted well for 18 but a Symonds run out and two wickets by Dan Prentice restricted the away teams score until Marshall let loose at the end to score 32* inc 5x4s. Sway finishing on 107-7 thanks to some very good running between the wickets.
Hythe's reply was emphatic with Joe Addleton cracking his bat in the process. He scored a quick fire 30 inc 7x4s. At the other end some lovely shots by Dan Prentice took him to 22* inc 3x4s whilst Toby Lambley hit his best score 21* inc 4x4s. Hythe gaining a win without losing a wicket in just 13 overs. Well done to George Richards who played despite feeling unwell.
Next week a tougher contest ~ New Milton @ Hythe.
