Bradninch U15s 97-7, Topsham St James U15s 88-5

Despite the bad weather surrounding Exeter, Topsham St James pitch remained dry and enabled the game to go ahead, writes Sam Sterrett (aged 15).

Bradninch won the toss and elected to bat on a good wicket. The opening batsmen Will Birley and Owen Buxton got Bradninch off to a flying start and put on 59 before Buxton fell for 31.

It was the introduction of Cameron Robison that brought a change of fortune for the home side.

Robison was introduced by skipper Aiden Pring in the 11th over. His first three balls went for a four, a two and another four. However, with the third ball he clean bowled Buxton. His next delivery sent the number three bat straight back to the pavilion and his final ball caught the edge of the number five’s bat, wicket keeper Ben Haig took the catch and Robison had a hat-trick!

Birley was fourth out for 28 in the 15th over with the visitors score on 81. Audie Campbell, batting at number five, scored what proved to be a crutial eleven runs as Bradninch closed on 97-8.

Robison finished with a five wicket haul with his impressive figures being four overs and five wickets for 19 runs.

Topsham’s openers Pring and Sam Sterrett put on 22 runs in the first fiver overs which meant the run chase got an ideal start. However, the games key moment came with the introduction of Birley at one end and Owen Buxton at the other for the visitors. The pair sent down four successive overs and the breaks were well and truly put on the home run chase!

From that confident start of 22-0 from five, the scoreboard, after eleven overs, showed a score of 25-2 as six overs were sent down with just three runs added to the total.

Sterrett was the first wicket to fall, he was run out not facing and James Wright was bowled Birley for two.

Ben Haigh hit a fine 27, giving great support to his skipper Pring who top scored in the match with 34, but the visiting skippers four overs for just six runs and a four over spell from Buxton for 13 runs left Topsham St James to much to do.
