WINSCOMBE entertained Knowle in their first game in the Bristol and Somerset WEPL division.Knowle won the toss and elected to bat on an excellent wicket and got off to a good start before Jerry Ham dismissed both openers in quick succession.Price and Tayler set about rebuilding the innings as they put on 66 for the third wicket before Price, who had suddenly started to strike a succession of boundaries, was dismissed for 56.Tayler then took control of the innings, frustrating the Winscombe bowlers with his style of play before he was caught on the boundary for 56. Knowle were now 181-6 when Bendall came to the crease and struck 39 which included four fours and three sixes which enabled Knowle to post a challenging total of 247-9 in their 50 overs.Pick of the bowlers was Iain Fraser who bowled his 15 overs unchanged taking 2-45 and he was supported by Neil Pollard 3-71, Jerry Ham 2-34 and Alan Hunt 1-51. Winscombe also held several good catches, notably by Alan Hunt and Dave Burge, and Marshall Clements scored a direct hit for a run-out.In reply, Winscombe were given a good solid start by openers Ross Toohey and Matt Lunn as they put on 62 for the first wicket before Lunn was caught for 25. Brad Loveluck soon followed which saw Alan Hunt join Toohey. These two then proceeded to put together a partnership of 130 which should have seen Winscombe to victory. However the re-introduction of Price to the attack saw him dismiss Hunt for 58 with the score at 207 in the 43rd over.From then on there was a procession of Winscombe batsmen to and from the wicket as they slumped to 238 all out with one ball remaining.Toohey was the ninth wicket to fall for a superb 117 which included 14 fours and two sixes, but he lacked support at the end of the innings as Winscombe succumbed to some poor batting and some excellent bowling by Price who took 7-46 as Winscombe lost by nine runs. Ringway man of the match was Ross Toohey. Winscombe this weekend travel to Brislington and on Sunday entertain Corsham in the next round of the Cockspur National Knockout Cup.
