Knebworth Park 4ths 178-10 Elstree 79-10

STUART Dempsey took eight wickets as Knebworth Park 4ths picked up only their second win of the season against Elstree.

Dempsey was certainly no makepeace in the Park side with figures of 8-14 as Elstree slumped to a crushing Saracens Herts League Division Eight defeat.

After being put into bat, the Park got off to a bad start with the top order blown away by poor shot selection, leaving them struggling at 76-6.

A lower order recovery was started by wicketkeeper Steve Large (20) and then followed up by Jack Thorn (69) to give Park a total of 178 off of 42 overs.

Elstree got off to a good start with their run chase, with 47 being put on before Dempsey got the first of his eight wickets.

After the first wicket, the innings collapsed with Dempsey finishing with figures of 8-14 off 9.2 overs to dismiss Elstree for just 79 - all 10 wickets falling for only 32 runs.
