U19 duo Max Baker-Smith and Fergus Nutt continued their fine form as PEPPARD STOKE ROW KITES recorded a 16th win in 18 games by 93 runs at home to GORING on Sunday.
The openers both scored 61 before retiring on another good track at Peppard Common, and with further contributions from David Williams (37) and Satheech Elaganathan (37), the Kites posted 241-6 in their 35 overs.
In reply Andy Steele made 52, but U15 Sol Robinson (3-37) and U17s Charlie Jordan (2-18) and Josh Perkins (2-24) kept the pressure on while Jordan’s twin Alfie bowled a seven-over spell for just 13 runs. Goring closed on 148-9.
A century partnership between father-and-son combination Andy and Daniel Watts propelled PEPPARD STOKE ROW MAHARAJAS to a 45-run win against STONOR on Sunday.
Andy Watts utilised the leg side to full effect as he bludgeoned an agricultural 103 towards cow corner, while his U13 son Daniel made 19.
A middle order collapse left the Maharajas wobbling, but Danny May’s 35 helped the hosts to 214-8. A burst by U15 Alfie Burnett (3-19) left Stonor rocking, and aided by captain Matt Kimber (2-21) and Ken Sullivan (2-6) the Maharajas picked up the win which also ensured for the first time ever all five Peppard Stoke Row weekend adult sides had won.
