After the closest of games last week, TABS were away at Barwick in Elmet, who were second in the league, and TABS were looking for a win to stay top of the league.
Josh Powell (capt), won the toss and chose to bat. And it looked early on as if that had been the wrong decision.
3 early wickets saw TABS at 16 for 3 before Toby Giddings and Rory Collins turned it around. A terrific partnership full of good shots and good running, saw these two put on 83 for the 4th wicket. Giddings retiring on 41 and Collins not out 28, saw TABS to 100 in 20 overs. Well done you two!
A much better performance in the field this week, with some excellent bowling from Ollie Riley 3 for 4, Jack Murray 2 for 13 and stand out from Giddings 4 for 8 in 2.4 overs, exceptional, (and he was on a hat trick, but settled for 3 in 4 balls).
So, a good performance in the field, catches held, bowling tight, Barwick all out for 44 in the 18th over.
Rarely do we name a Man of the Match, but in this case we did, and the match ball went to Toby Giddings, 41 retired, and 4 wickets. Well done Toby.
Next week at home to Oulton in the Martin Olley Trophy, so it would be nice to have a good run in the cup too. Meet at the ground 0930 for a 1000 start.
Team from; Powell, Kilby, Tomlinson, Gomersall, Collins, Woffendin, Foulkes, E Contreras, H Contreras, Riley, Giddings, Murray, Gibson…team will be on the website Wednesday evening after nets.
