Feckenham enjoy double indoor success
10:00am Tuesday 8th April 2014 in Sport
THE Boxmen and Prince Henry's fell to Feckenham in the Worcestershire Cricket Board Indoor League Evesham Division.
In their debut season, Feckenham won with one ball left after scoring 130-3 in reply to Boxmen's 128-1.
Josh Colwell and Aaron Batchelor launched the innings with 53 runs before retiring in the seventh over.
Oli Lynott-May (17) was run-out with the score on 93 in the 10th before Mike Banks (18 not out) and Jason Haines (24no) completed the run fest.
Despite losing Ben Adshead (12) in the fourth over with the score on 44, Josh Stacey (38 no) and Luke Jackson (17) continued the progress.
They suffered two run-outs and Jamie Griffiths retired but Ryan Humphries (15no) and Stacey needed only 10 runs from the last over. The goal was reached with three off the penultimate ball.
Redditch, who took the league's wooden spoon, could not field a side and Prince Henry's received two points.
Feckenham (150-2) then beat Prince Henry's (137-5) by 13 runs with manic running between the wickets.
The villagers were on 66-1 after six overs and the second six went for 84.
Dom Fenney and Nick Powell (22) matched Feckenham's scoring in reply before the latter was caught by the diving Adshead.
Gio Capaldi (6) and Brent McCormish were bowled by Stacey before Fenney retired and Simon Price was run-out.
Fenney (54no) ended as last man standing after Matt Knight (10) was stumped but 44 runs from three overs was a tall order.
The final games tonight see Ashton-under-Hill play Bredon at 8pm in a title decider and Dumbleton complete their fixtures against Evesham Casuals.
