Division 2: Hook (115-2) beat Johnston (112 all out) by 8 wickets

Callum and George James starred with bat and ball for Hook as they notched a comfortable win over Johnston.

The visitors were all out for 112, although rallied well to pass three figures after being 47-6 at one stage. But the total wasn't enough to seriously challenge the home side as they reached their target with eight wickets and 16 overs to spare.

After opting to bat, Johnston hit trouble early as the top order of Chris Goodridge ((0), Gino Cleal (0), John Summons (7) and Josh Hicks (6) all went early to leave them 23-4.

No 5 Lewis Boswell made 20 but it was the tail that boosted the total.

Mark Hicks cracked five fours as he counter attacked with 26, Keegan Codd made 16 (two fours) and No 10 Paul Morris hit four boundaries on route to 23.

Emma Summons was left unbeaten on 2 not out but Hook would have been satisfied as Callum James finished with 4-35, Dai Hopkins 3-39, Aled Phelps 2-29, and Brennan Martin 1-4.

George James and Jake Wicks got the home team’s chase off to a solid start as they put on 62, before Wicks was caught by Liam James off the bowling Mark Hicks (2-35) for 34.

The same combination removed Aled Phelps (6), but James went on to finish 59 not out (nine fours and a six) and was joined by Jacob Lay (10 not out) in finishing the job.

The win leaves Hook third and just 19 points off the top two, but they face a crucial away game at leaders Narberth this Saturday.

Johnston meanwhile, remain ninth, and welcome Carew 3rds to Glebelands on the weekend.
