Longparish v Bedhampton.
Bedhampton batted first and at 103-0 with 20 overs remaining looked to be heading for a big total, but a slick display in the field plus two wickets each for Ben Gardner and Matt Jackman and three each for Alex Coezee and Harry Martin dismissed them for 208.
Most of the Longparish batting line up made a contribution to their team's reply. Adam Lister top scored with 32 and George Kousseff hit 26 but ultimately they fell 13 runs short with one wicket remaining.
Odiham and Greywell v Longparish II.
In tricky conditions, Longparish II batted first and found scoring difficult.
Gary Taplin opened and was unbeaten on 28 at the close as wickets fell at the other end, all caught bar one run out, as Longparish II closed on 94-8.
Scott Sturt, Tim Oram and Gary Taplin all picked up two wickets each for Longparish II but could not prevent Odiham’s four wicket win.
Longparish III v Whitchurch II.
A superb display in the field backed up an impressive bowling performance sent Longparish III well on the way to victory.
Harry Samways’ fine form with the ball continued as he winkled out three for the Whitchurch II top order including the key wicket of Martyn Dancer.
Mali Colloredo and Nathan Smith both took 3-11 as Whitchurch II were all out for 75. Alex Brinton was the pick of the Whitchurch II attack taking 3-18 but he could not prevent Longparish III passing the target with five wickets remaining.
