Saracens Herts League Division 12

Potters Bar 5ths 180-8 Tewin 2nds 181-6

POTTERS Bar suffered a narrow defeat to Tewin 2nds with just three balls to go on a damp afternoon.

Captain Colin Titmuss won the toss and elected to bat first in the Saracens Herts League Division 12 encounter.

The skipper and 14-year-old Ben Taylor put on a respectful 106 partnership to open the batting, with Titmuss first to fall of the pair with a score of 64.

Jamie Trust continued with a fine innings of 49, but Taylor then fell for 40.

Other batsmen came and fell rapidly to leave Bar with a score of 180-8.

White was the pick of the Tewin bowlers with 4-35, while Pirbham snared 3-58.

Tewin in response took to the crease with a slow start, losing an early wicket after only five runs.

Then came captain Dan Jones to score an explosive 58 with the help of Willan, who managed 43 not out, to get the runs in a close-fought finish to a great game of cricket.

The pick of the Bar bowlers were Austin Wedge with 3-70 and Jeremy Smitz, who grabbed 2-5.

Bar fielded a very youthful side with six of the 11 made up of colts.

These included Luke Watling, Andrew Knight and Bradley Swale to name but a few.

Potters Bar 5ths are set to face Cockfosters 4ths on Saturday.
