Calmore Sports made it five wins from six Southern Electric Premier League Division Two matches following a narrow two wicket victory over United Services Portsmouth at Loperwood on Saturday.

 

Skipper Darren Vann winning to toss invited the Navy men to bat first. Paul Cass came into the side for Tom Perry and Paul Proudley returned from injury to replace Dan Croft.

 

Matt Maiden and Elijah Turriff-Smith bowled 10 overs each at the top of the innings and reduced the visitors to 61 for 4. Maiden dismissed Chris Rait for 22 to open the door for Turriff-Smith who dismissed the prolific Dominic Carson for 2 and Steve Walker for 1.

 

Maiden finished with 1 for 30 from his 10 overs, the Aussie taking three also for 30 runs.  US were all at sea as they struggled to push their score along,

 

Cass and Mike West were bowling tight lines as they lost wickets at regular intervals. Only Darren Robins held sway with a sound score of 60 hitting eight fours and a hugh six off 103 balls, he was last man out after James Rose had taken two return catches to dismiss them for 155.

 

Calmore made a steady start to their reply, Mark Lavelle and skipper Vann posting an opening stand of 34, before Lavelle was bowled. Vann followed soon after for a bright 24. Ben Johns the young prodigy was building another innings of quality, he shared a stand of 44 stand with West to put his side in the driving seat, but as with previous weeks the home side were losing wickets at regular innings. Johns was fifth out within 36 of the winning target, being stumped just 2 runs short of a deserved half-century.

 

Cass was run out and as they crept towards their task, two wickets tumbled at 149. James Rose however was holding his end intact, a job he has made his own at the end of the innings striking the winning boundary in his 17 not out.
