Somerset Cricket League round-up - Howson's red-hot form continues as Lympsham beat Broadway
2:00pm Wednesday 11th June 2014 in Sport
ANOTHER weekend of on-and-off showers affected many matches in the Shrubbery League.
In one of the completed matches, in Division Five, Mark were bowled out for 96 in a low-scoring defeat away to Cheddar II, who chased down their target with seven wickets to spare.
Although five Mark players reached double figures, none were able to reach 20 runs.
In reply, M. Mitchell, S. Mason and T. Lewis each claimed a wicket for Mark, but B. Peverall (34 not out) and R. Hathway (27 not out) saw Cheddar II home.
In Division Four, leaders Lympsham were comfortable winners at home to Broadway and Horton.
Lympsham hit 211-8, with Jamie Howson top scoring with 80 and Jason Luff falling five short of a half-century.
In reply, Broadway and Horton were all out for 128 as the home side triumphed by 83 runs.
The derby clash between Huntspill and District and Wedmore in Division Three was cancelled due to bad weather.
In Division Five, East Huntspill suffered the same fate as their match with Trull was also called off, as was East Huntspill II and Wellington III in Division Eight South.
The Division Nine North West fixtures between Wedmore A and Huntspill and District II, and Weston-super-Mare IIII v Lympsham II were called off.
The Division Nine South East match between Ilton II and Wedmore II was also cancelled due to the weather.
