Monkton Combe School won by 3 wickets
Played at Monkton Combe School, BA2 7HG

Match Report

XL won the toss and batted on a reasonable surface, but its swing and lateral movement caused a few problems to batsmen. After two early wickets Graham Poulton (80*) and Everton Griffith (89) gradually accelerated in a stand of 171. Monkton’s best bowler was Lewis Honeysett (8-1-18-1). A score of 198 would have been a very challenging total, but for the batting of Ben Wells, who made 114 *, supported by Will Arney (31). The other boys struggled against accurate bowling by Norman Botton ((7-0-29-2), Scyld Berry ((6-0-26-1), Andy Roberts (4.2-0-26-2), Iain Locke ((5-0-17-1) and James Jacob (6-1-22-0). Monkton Combe School won off the second ball of the 39th over!
