Disappointment for HSM against Shepherds Bush
Harrow St Mary's first XI were well beaten by Shepherds Bush this weekend but there was better news from the second and third teams, who picked up a win and a draw respectively.
Shepherds Bush beat
Harrow St Mary's by six wickets
It’s not worth wasting good ink on HSM's batting performance, and it would also take longer to write the report than they actually batted for.
Suffice to say that when your top three can only muster 12 each, it puts pressure on those below and it was left again to the lower order and bowlers to try to get the team into at least three figures.
There was excellent bowling from two of Bush's bowlers, though - Morse 15.2-5.41-7 and Speer 7-6-5-3
Harrow St Mary's 2nd XI beat
Edmonston 2nd XI by eight wickets
The 2nd XI picked up another win on their quest for promotion. A slow start by Edmonton had them showing six off five overs, but thanks to some great catching and supporting of his bowlers by Kathan Trivedi, Edmonton were bowled out for 111.
Monty Jivraj took three for 41 and Prageeth Cooray four for nine.
Then a well awaited for knock by Prasanna DeAlwis (45) and 26 not out from Gary Pettet saw HSM knock off the runs in 24 overs to keep their title hopes alive and they remain on top of the table.
Harrow St Mary's 3rd XI 287-6 dec. drew with
Teddington 3rd XI 212-7
A knock of 91 by Arman Randhawa gave HSM a figure they hoped would make a match of it and give them enough overs to bowl Teddington out.
With four overs to go, HSM needed just two wickets to claim the full points but Teddington clung on. This still leave them joint runners up though, but it’s early days yet.
