10:10am Wednesday 10th July 2013 in Cricket
Penton v Winterbourne II.
Penton’s home win over Winterbourne II was their third victory in a row and it has turned their season around.
On the hottest day of the year so far, Penton reached 203-7, with John Hunter top scoring with 63. The other top and middle order batsmen gave valuable support with Steve Patrick (21), Tom Cavanagh (22), Wayne Green (26) and George Staff (25 not out) all contributing. Mark Kenyon’s cameo of 12 not out from four balls, pushed the score over the magic 200 figure.
Winterbourne were always in the game and were not bowled out until the last over, finishing on 195 all out, only nine runs short. Pick of the Penton bowlers was off-spinner Martin Patrick with 5-40 but Andrew Carr kept his nerve and line and length, to take the last two wickets and finish with 3-36.
