SKIPPER John Inman and Danny Hennessey led a brave fight back by Knebworth 5ths to draw a match that seemed lost away to Southgate Compton 2nds.

Chasing 177-6, the Park's reply looked sad at 50-6 before Hennessey's clean hitting and Inman's belligerence gave them a glimmer of victory.

Hennessey then fell for 22 to a running one-handed catch on the boundary as the Park finally ended on 143-8.

Captain Inman was 60 not out at the close of the Saracens Herts League Division 11 clash.
