ALFAS SCRAPE HOME WITH AN OVER TO SPARE
 
23rd July 2013

Intellectuals and Sporting Alfas played out a game to an exciting finish in the latest installment of the ECCL Division Two League.

Intellectuals batted first and crawled to a score of 202-7 dec after batting for 52 overs. The pick of the bowlers for Alfas was John Braithwaite who took 2-14 off nine overs. He was well supported by Tyler Brown who bowled well to end with figures of 1-18, also in nine overs.

In reply Neil McKinstry (31 ) and Ben Mariner(57 ) put on 89 for the first wicket but then an inexplicable collapse meant Alfas were struggling at 150-8.

However Geoff Evans (48 not out) and Kieran Perman with a lovely knock of 27 not out saw them Alfas finally over the finishing line with an over to spare.

Sporting Alfas took 18 points from the game, whilst Intellectuals took 8 points as the top four in the league continue to exchange league positions after every game.
