Following on from last week’s success away at Boscowen Park against Methigion we played the first of two 20/20 games this week against a strong Falmouth lineup at the Hine Downing Oval.
Falmouth made 114 for 7 off their 20 overs. (Searle 29, Ecclestone 24). Our bowling and fielding was impressive, highlighted by a spectacular catch by Damo and two stumpings and a caught behind by Mark (reading this Alan?), not to mention the run out assist by Cake.
In reply the Seaview came up just short of the target at 109-4. It’s a shame Damo had to retire when reaching 30 runs (league rules) as he was in cracking form and made 32 n.o. Others to mention were Mark (28) and Bobby (18) who gave valuable support.
Although we lost the match we gave Falmouth a real run for their money and I think they were quietly impressed and surprised by the Old Boys. Looking forward to the away match at their place, wherever that is.
