Dramatic tie

A late night report from the skipper on todays game, we will keep this a very short but brief report….
A TIE in the END…but to be honest if felt more like a loss (it could have been much, much worse at one point)…but it means the end of our promotion campaign for this season (barring a series of freak results) , based on a host of cancelled games this weekend…
Fielding first we dismissed West Bergholt for 103…only Jeeva and Mcdonald with 24 and 15 respectivley helped bergholt to that score, we fielded and bowled well to restrict them, Joe Smith 10-4-18-2, Patrick Mckenna 8.4-2-19-2, Ben Mason 6-0-21-0, Chris Chambers 10-2-23-1, John ‘Wolfie’ Gibson 3-1-8-2, Jordan Bonnet 1-0-3-1 + two run outs.
In Reply EC started brightly, Smith on his current run of bad form was dismissed for 7 but Will Dunn, Harry Callaghan and Lewis Chambers did well to take us to 73 for 2, within 30 of the target, however the damp wicket, poor batting, poor shot selection, poor running and a superb spell by the Begholt bowler Mcclewin (4-15 off 7) and pretty much poor all round play put us in a position which we could not fathom earlier in the game.
We were suddenly 95 for 9, 9 shy of the total and staring at anothe defeat, chasing a small total…, however Patrick and Ben Mason sensibly saw us to 103 before Patrick was bowled by another yorker from mcclewin to leave us tied….
EC 13 points…West Bergholt 13 points…
