Having won the toss Horwood elected to bat first on a good hard wicket. Starting with a bang Horwood scored 20 off the first over to calm the nerves. Horwood were scoring freely until Morrison (6) fell in the fourth over with the score at 39-1, Horwood were struck with another blow when Armitage (22) in the next over leaving Horwood on 40-2. Nix and I McStraw began rebuilding the innings and put on 30 before Nix (8) became the 3rd Horwood casualty. Horwood were fortunate that I McStraw was able to steady the ship and score a quick and potential match winning score of 32 before falling in the 10th over. Marsh were pegging Horwood back after a quick start but thanks to some quick and lusty blows from A Armitage (12) and Pendergast (15*) Horwood were able to reach a competitive 127-7 from their 15 Overs.

Marsh began their chase with Vadivale and S Leonard who in true fashion started quickly and pushed 1’s 2’s and the odd boundary. Horwood got their breakthrough in the fifth over when Haydon Morrison’s spin was introduced to the game and Leonard (7) was caught by Josh Nix. With the score at 24-1 Marsh were still in control thanks to wickets in hand. Horwood picked up their second wicket again courtesy of Morrison’s spin when Vadivale (18) was caught by Jack Trundell. Marsh began re-building after losing 2 wickets and began scoring freely thanks to Wallace and Turner. Marsh’s 3rd wicket partnership put on a quick 59 before Turner (31) was bowled by Nix in the 13th over. Marsh Gibbons captain Joe Leonard came to the crease with both teams fancying their chances. Wallace and Leonard pushed singles and 2’s and put away the bad ball until Leonard(4) fell in the last over with the score 116-4. Marsh however could not finish the game and fell 8 runs short to cap off an exciting final. (Special mention to A Wallace who carried his bat and finished unbeaten on 43).

Horwood can now look forward to another Cup final with Marsh Gibbon after both teams won their respective groups to progress into next Fridays Cup final. The match will be played at Great Horwood CC (6:30PM) – Bar and BBQ will be open to both spectators and players.
