Minehead II hit by rain, Watchet and Kilve win

By in Cricket

MINEHEAD 2nd XI’s Division Three game with Broadway and Horton was in the balance when persistent rain put an end to proceedings.

Batting first, openers Dan Godfrey (38) and Braden Taylor (59) laid the perfect platform for Minehead, but only Jason Abbott (23) and Craig Sully (26) could add any meaningful contributions as they slipped from 160-4 to 197 all out.

The visitors had reached 74-3 when the rain fell, with Darren Sherring taking 1-33 and Gav Paviour 2-16, and the points were shared on a frustrating day for all involved.

Minehead are now fourth in the table and face a tough trip to local rivals Kilve tomorrow (Saturday).

n Watchet picked up a welcome second win of the season which lifted them to fourth from bottom of Division Three.

Playing away to another struggling side, Barrington, they bowled their hosts out for 164, with Dominic Bowden taking 3-20 and Archie Walsh and C Patterson bagging two wickets each.

In reply, Watchet lost three wickets cheaply, but then Ryan Strong saw them home with an unbeaten 55, supported by Ian Lowe (35), Connor Jeromson (20) and Liam Woolgrove (18).

n Kilve also enjoyed a win in the same division, beating North Newton away by 37 runs.

C James and G Stone both got into the 40s as they ran up a 191-8 total.

Then James and M Girling took three wickets each as North Newton were dismissed for 154.
