A weather-related reduced game saw BPCC fall disappointingly short of a mediocre Bayshill total. A competent bowling (if not fielding) performance saw Bayshill bowled out for 111 in the last of their 25 overs, with Stan and Coxy each snagging three wickets. The skipper and and newbie Rufus shared the other four.
Two early wickets slowed the reply, but Marc and Martin rebuilt sensibly, and with six an over required from the final seven overs it looked like back-to-back wins for the mighty Blen. But a mini collapse and some tight bowling saw the equation grow to 10 off the last over. The first ball went for four, but after that the scoreboard ticked over no more. Bayshill 111 (24.1 overs, Cox 3-23 Angol 3-30) BPCC 106-5 (25 overs, Cox 55*) Bayshill won by 5 runs
