DWCC vs First XI

The annual OG match took place last Saturday versus a very determined and highly motivated Downside 1st XI and for the first time in history the match ended in a very exciting tie.

A fantastic bowling performance from Downside restricted the OG’s to 183 all out. The top performer in the bowling department was man of the match Luke Carrigan who took 4 wickets which also included a hat-trick. He was backed up by this season’s consistent performers in the bowling department Mungo Sheehan and George Hobbs who picked up 2 wickets each.

Downside’s reply got off to a good start with the opening batsmen putting on 36 runs for the 1st wicket. As has been the case this year all the batsmen chipped in which resulted in 1 run needed of the last over with 1 wicket in hand. Milo Chalon-Wilson could only manage to plink a return  catch back to OG Alex Gilbert who dropped it but managed to execute a brilliant run out whilst lying on the pitch after his attempt to catch the ball.

All in all it was a good day had by everyone and we look forward to the fixture next year.
