Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Sawbo PANTHERS v Northwood Town 3rd XI on Sat 21 May 2011 at 1:00
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Lost 7 wickets

Match report After losing the toss the opposition captain decided to field first which was an interesting decision given that he only had 4 players at the ground. With Scott Noonan having to leave at 6pm to go to a ball, the extra 30 minutes delay was not what skipper Freeman wanted. When we finally got going, Marsh had started to find some fluency before being bowled for 9, whereupon Fisher and Freeman put ona 50 stand with few alarms before Freeman tried pulling a ball that kept low and was bowled for 22. Fisher continued on his merry way before being caught for 70 and a mid order collapse saw the home side in some trouble at 122 for 7 in the 32nd over, well short of a defendable total. However sensible batting by Vijay (20) and Boxall (9) before some late long handle by the new all rounder in the side Scott Noonan 28 not out saw sawbo post a respectable 191 all out from 45 overs.
Early wickets were needed and Noonan and Heslop obliged with the opposition in some trouble at 51-3. Unfortunately this coincided with Noonan's departure for a marquee and the lack of bowling depth was exposed with no further wickets taken. Matt Billings bowled well again with little luck and Freeman put down a caught and bowled chance that should have been taken and that was that. A shame as another few overs of Noonan may have made all the difference!! But still 4th in the league and the next performance is all important after facing defeat for the first time this year.
