Marshall Hatchick Two Counties Championship Division 7

St Osyth v Coggeshall III

 

Coggeshall III won by 23 runs

 

A disastrous batting collapse cost St Osyth another Two Counties Division 7 match as they fell 23 runs short against Coggeshall III. 

 

 

Having put Coggeshall in, opening bowlers Alex Hennessy and Ross Evans found some bounce in the pitch, and were rewarded with 3 wickets. Sean Hennessy (3-46) and Anthony Hazelton (4-30) also turned  in useful bowling spells,  chipping away at the batting. Fergus Wishart (32) and Peter Ward (25) were the main contributors with the bat for Coggeshall. The score had reached 38-9 when Toosey captain Sean Hennessy very sportingly recalled the Coggeshall last man after there was confusion regarding a catch taken off an apparent no-ball, as Coggeshall went on to make 162 all out. 

 

St Osyth found batting equally testing and lost their first 2 wickets for 19. Alex and Sean Hennessy then added 57 in 8 overs with Sean hitting 9 fours in his 39. Anthony Hazelton continued the run scoring and found the boundary with the same frequency as a further 48 were added in 9 overs. At 124-3, the hosts were on course for a win, but when Hazelton was out for 35, a collapse was triggered as the bowling of Adam Egg (5-35) and Peter Ward (4-35) completely outfoxed the remaining Toosey batsmen.

Seven wickets went down for 15 runs to see St Osyth dismissed for 139, and slide to a disappointing 5th place in the table.
