High Roding 2nd XI v Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 3rd XI on Sat 20 May 2017 at 1:30
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Lost by 32 runs

Match report A catastrophic batting collapse meant the 3's remain winless after a rain interrupted trip to picturesque High Roding. Chasing 208 for victory in 38 overs, we looked well set having got the chase within 100 before a spell of five wickets in five balls from Gilfrin ensured only one winner.
After winning the toss, on a wicket where the covers had leaked at one end, Bowler decided to bowl and was rewarded with a tight opening spell from Dongworth and Chisnall. While economical, they failed to make the most of helpful conditions and either side of two rain breaks the hosts progressed to 207 for 3.
Set 208 to win in 38 overs, on a now damp wicket at both ends, Foster and Harnack began the chase brilliantly, seeing off the good balls and feasting on those that strayed to take the score towards three figures. Unfortunately, Harnack hit his wicket on 37, and soon after Foster departed after hitting a well constructed 70, and we never recovered.
Chisnall tamely hit the next ball to cover, and Edwards deposited swiping the hat trick ball in the air to the grateful cover again. From the next two balls of the same bowler's next over, Bowler was caught with a diving forward catch at fly slip, and Sydes swished at one too. Five wickets in five balls, a magnificent effort for man of the match Gilfrin.
Youngs and MacDonald followed before Moorley and Tom Shore added 40-odd for two more points in reply.
A disappointing result, fielding for much of the time with ten men again, and although Harnack and Foster gave us a great start, a calamitous batting collapse ensured a heavy defeat. With poor availability running through the Club, it is promising to be a challenging season as we strive to maintain our position in Div 4, that we fought so hard for last year.
