TURVILLE PARK came up short of their target against V&A at Stonor on Saturday in a 35-overs match.
In a game of fluctuating fortunes, V&A emerged winners by 38 runs, which was almost entirely made up of the six sixes struck by Hounsey-Thear as he ran up a match-defining 90 not out.
Turville began with real intent as skipper James Hunt and fellow swing bowler Tom Vallance cut a swathe through the V&A top order with some good seam and swing. Turville’s bowling depth was quickly found out and V&A managed to compile 194 despite some good spin bowling from Neil Runkel and Charlie Hunt.
In reply Turville had reached a comfortable 93-2 with Hunt and Wade set, and eight an over needed from the remaining 13 overs. However, Hunt holed out for a bristling 50, while Wade ran out of partners.
