CRICKET: Meadows ton proves in vain for Challow
6:51pm Monday 20th July 2009 in Division 2
A cracking century from Nick Meadows was not enough to earn Challow & Childrey victory at Long Marston.
Meadows’s 130 was the backbone behind Challow’s 262-6, but the home side batted out for a draw thanks to dogged contributions from Will Dallimore (84) and Harry Bowles (48).
Joe Harris took 4-49 for Challow.
Long Marston 8pts, Challow 16.
Great & Little Tew’s 107-run win over Sandford St Martin as marred by a nasty injury to Sandford’s Phil Paterson.
Batting without a helmet, he was hit in the face by a delivery and needed hospital treatment.
That came after Tew had made 207, Aussie Antony Smith top-scoring with 52, while Simon Smith retur-ned 5-63.
Lloyd Brock (4-23) and Smith (4-29) then worked their way through the Sandford batting and Paterson’s injury meant they finished on 100 all out.
Great & Little Tew 25, Sandford 6.
Bottom-of-the-table Han-borough were no match for Banbury 2nd, who won by six wickets.
Hanborough made 189-9 as Paul Hill claimed 4-59, but Banbury made light work of reaching the target thanks to Simon Hole (75) and Lloyd Sabin (74no).
Hanborough 7, Banbury 2nd 25.
Oxford & Bletchingdon Nondescripts must have fancied their chances of victory after bowling out Abingdon Vale for 138.
But the visitors were not to be denied as Ed Tilley (4-26) and Paul White (3-28) sent Nondies crashing to 99 all out and a 39-run defeat.
Ox & Bletch 6, Abingdon Vale 25.
Leaders Bourton Vale stretched their lead at the top of the table with a 106-run triumph away to Tiddington.
Batting first, Vale reached 195-8 as Jamie Noble led the way with 57.
Tiddington were then blown away by the pace of Ryan Newhook, who claimed excellent figures of 6-49 as they fell to 89 all out.
