SONNING COMMON regained the Roger Choules Memorial Trophy when they visited HIGHMOOR for their annual match on Sunday with just two balls to spare.
Highmoor started brightly with opener Shamir making 29 but it was Owen Wells and Pete Choules who held the innings together. They built a good foundation with Wells going on to make a solid 44.
Skipper Chris Pitson picked up three wickets for Sonning Common who fielded well throughout. Choules then opened up towards the end of the innings and, supported by Alan Mayers and Owen Lovelock, managed to get the home side to 159 off their 35 overs.
In reply Sonning Common kept up with the run rate for the first half of the innings. Chris Pitson, Chris Gallimore and Steve McGrath all got starts but when Gallimore was out the runs dried up thanks to tight bowling from Miraque and Wells.
Sonning Common looked out of the game for a while and eventually needed 31 off the last three overs.
Some agricultural hitting from Nick Pitson changed things and he was well supported by youngster Luke Pitson to see Sonning Common home in the last over.
