Andover II clinch superb win at Sarisbury II
Sarisbury Athletic II v Andover II.
Andover II pulled off a fantastic victory at top four side Sarisbury Athletic II.
On a gloriously hot day captain Simpson lost the toss and Sarisbury had no hesitation in batting. Their innings got off to bad start losing two quick wickets due to brilliant spell from Phil Greening and Dave Webb.
Sarisbury had it tough for the first 35 overs, Andover taking all their catches and forcing a run out. Mottola (57) and captain Floyd (68no) took Sarisbury to 235 from their allotted overs.
Andover’s reply started badly by losing Purchase on six but it brought Stuart Summers to the crease for his first knock of the season. Blackburn and Summers put on 127 for the second wicket when Summers was finally removed by Moon for 72.
Two more wickets left them on 149-4 with Simpson batting in his usual style before falling for a quick fire 25. With Blackburn (92no) still scoring freely and with the support of McMahon (13) it was left to Greening to hit the winning three runs with an over to spare.
