U12 vs Paignton
By Mark Pitman
Defeat for the U12's at Paignton
Sam Harvey lost the toss and Paignton decided to bat. Devon players Rory Medlock & Archie Farkins both retired on 31* and 30* respectively. Three run outs helped to put the brakes on the run rate but Paignton finished on 124/5 after their 20 overs. Harvey took 1 wicket and Fergus Retallick the other.
Luke Manuell & Harvey opened up the batting but were soon back in the hutch with the score on 17/2. Sam Russell continued in his rich vein of form retiring on 30 but needed to bat again as Bovey wickets began to tumble. Russell finished on 40*. Two run outs proved to be costly for our U12's with the team finishing on 106 all out. Close but not close enough probably sums up the match.
Thanks to Paignton for hosting the match & to the match officials for getting the game on (Sarah Harvey - scoring & Darren Harvey - umpiring)
