PHIL DUNCAN made an unbeaten 88 as PEPPARD STOKE ROW KITES returned to winning ways with a 51-run win against SONNING COMMON VILLAGE on Sunday.
Father-and-son duo Gary and Will Legg opened for the Kites and both looked fluent on their way to identical scores of 29.
Peppard Stoke Row suffered a brief wobble as Tom Woodward and Ed Hounsil fell cheaply, slipping to 112-4, but Jake Leach and Duncan put them back in control before the former was bowled by Vinay Sheehan.
Dan Bacon made a useful contribution but it was now all about Duncan as he blasted six maximums to help his side to 277-7 in their 40 overs.
Will Legg and David Williams bowled with searing pace at the start of the Sonning Common innings, the former dismissing the visitors’ captain Chris Pitson with a leg stump Yorker.
Young leg spinner Josh Perkins accounted for Howard Cook before an excellent partnership between Sheehan and Louis Gallimore helped move the scoring rate along.
They were both dismissed in Hounsil’s first over for the Kites, and he later accounted for Tom Mee as Sonning Common ended on 226-5, Michael Barker making a hard-hitting 42 not out late in the day.
