Stonor held to a draw
Published 02/06/14



STONOR took on Heartaches on Sunday after a minute’s silence for the much-missed David Glenn who played for both teams for many years.

The visitors won the toss and put Stonor into bat, with openers Collings and Dan finding the going tough against some tight bowling.

Searching swingers from A Rice repeatedly beat the bat but M Bowes made the breakthrough, taking the first two wickets for only 16 on the board.

All the Hearts bowling was strong (Jordan Frieda took 4 for 50) but with the retirement of A Rice (0 for 3 runs off 6 overs) and M Bowes (2 for 16 runs) that Stonor were able to accelerate the scoring with number three bat and trainee lawyer T Ma making 23 and skipper M Lovatt thumping 35.

Later down the order S Harris’s vital 45 not out ensured that Stonor’s innings ended on 143 for 7. This proved a bridge too far for Hearts, despite their strong batting line up.


Again, the bowling was tight, especially from S Harris (1 for 19), Warren (2 for 12), and G Bradshaw (1 for 14).

Hearts were not short of shot-making batsmen: opener H Wilson (15) hit some commanding drives and A Rice hung in there for a fighting 22 not out.

But the guests gradually gave up the chase and the host’s bowlers could not break through the defences.

A last couple of overs from S Collings dangled the prospect of runs - and therefore of wickets - but by then there were still 52 runs to get.

Hearts ended on 92 for 6 in response to Stonor’s 143.

So a languid draw to end a day in which the view, the weather and the tea trumped the cricket (which is often the case at Stonor) - all of them perfectly orchestrated by the Stonor match manager.
