MATCH SCORECARD

OCA,D1: Horwood edge to nail biting victory

Great Horwood travelled to Oxenford last Saturday and for the second week running were involved in a nail biting finish but this time managed to come away victorious by 2 wickets.

Oxenford won the toss and elected to bat first but found runs hard to come by against opening bowlers Adam Armitage and Josh Nix, the latter making a breakthrough in his first over. Armitage then claimed his first victim and after 15 overs the score was 45-2.

At this point Haydon Morrison (2-40) and Rob Taylor were introduced to the attack and both picked up a wicket early in their spells and continued to stem the flow of runs as Oxenford struggled to gain any momentum. The 100 eventually came up in the 33rd over with 5 wickets down. As they tried to increase the rate Horwood were able to continue to pick up wickets as Nix returned to finish with 3-43 and Taylor also claimed the last 2 victims and finished with 3-33 as Oxenford were all out for 155.

Robby Taylor

Horwood knew a good start would ease any nerves chasing a relatively small total, however the usually reliable opening partnership of Stuart Parker and Sam Willet were both dismissed early, followed by Dale Armitage to leave Horwood reeling at 17-3. Olly Prendergast was promoted to number 4 to try and steady things and produced his best innings for the club as with Morrison he shared a 4th wicket partnership of 43 until Morrison was dismissed for 15 to leave the score 60-4. Josh Nix then joined Prendergast and blasted a quick 21 but when he was bowled, followed by Krajnk in quick succession Horwood were in trouble at 93-6. Prendergast looked in control and to be taking his side to victory until he was caught to a terrific catch on the boundary for a very good 45.

Ollie Prendergast

A mix up saw Adam Armitage run out to leave Horwood 8 down with 43 runs still required.

This brought Chris Mcstraw and Rob Taylor together in what would prove the match winning partnership. The pair batted superbly together, with Horwood well ahead of the run rate they played sensibly, rotating the strike and dismissing the bad ball as they saw their side home to a tense victory with 8 overs to spare. Mcstraw finished unbeaten on 26 and Taylor 19 not out.

This Saturday Horwood entertain Stonesfield at Nash Road.
