First draw of season sees Peppard end on top

CHAMPIONS PEPPARD STOKE ROW ended their season by salvaging a draw at runners-up SULHAMSTEAD in a tense finale.

Opener Jamie Seward - dropped second ball at slip - blazed away to make 55 before he was superbly caught by Will Bishop, and he was well supported by Marc Thompson (50) as Sully took charge.

Sam Boughton (2-40) impressed during his first spell of the season, but Sully batted impressively throughout to close on 199-6, with Sam Fletcher, Ian Jackson and Roy Hayden also picking up wickets.

In reply, Andy Watts was well caught at slip before Wynand Lamprecht - who looked in imperious touch - was strangled down the leg side for an excellent 32.

Talented youngster Doug Macdonald quickly removed captain Paddy Hennessy - perhaps unfortunate to be adjudged leg before - and Boughton, who recorded a third consecutive duck as PSR slumped to 58-4.
