WOODCOTE defeated SONNING on Sunday for the second time this season by the comfortable margin of 52 runs.
Put in to bat by the visitors Woodcote made a slowish start against some accurate bowling, then lost wickets and looked in trouble at 99-6 with only nine overs to go.
A superb unbroken partnership of 89 between Mike Stroker and Steve Henderson, featuring some mighty blows from Henderson in Â particular, saw them finish with a very respectable total.
Sonning’s innings got off to a steady start but they were always behind the asking rate due to a brilliant spell by Jaimee Jose.
After opening with three spinners Woodcote brought on Mark Pearson, whose pace and accuracy proved too much for the opposition batsmen, and a devastating spell of 4-9 in four overs by Stroker made the game safe for the home team.
