After winning the toss, Scotty invited L/E to have first use of 'The Road'. When Nathan Johnston nipped out the opener early doors, all appeared well. But a couple of missed chances saw L/E recover and move the score along. The second wicket fell when Brins had the other opener trapped LBW for 27, but the third wicket partnership began to look menacing as the score approached 100. However a great piece of fielding by 'Cub' Peat saw a direct hit and Daddy Bear was on his way back to the changing rooms. From then on the batting subsided somewhat with all the bowlers getting in on the act. Apart from Villiers with a slogged 31, none of the other batsman had any success and what had looked to be a promising position for L/E half way through the innings, ended with 204-9 off 50 overs.
Following tea and Calvo's usual poor start to the innings (30-3 off 16 overs), the game was one way traffic! Cal & Will Peat added 68 runs for the fourth wicket until Will chased a wide one. Skipper Scott then joined Cal and the bowlers were bear-ied! A fabulous partnership of just under a hundred brought Calvo to the brink of victory until Cal fell nine runs short of a deserved century. There were no more alarms as Scotty remained to the end finishing on 46 not out as a 5 wicket victory and 20 vital points were collected.
BOM Cal Jayes - Super knock.
