YELVERTON'S Sunday XI made the short trip west to play Cheesewring CC at their Upton Cross ground near Minions.

Yelverton skipper Iain Cunningham won the toss and had no hesitation in opting to field first.

The Cheesewring batsmen found the Yelverton bowling to their liking and raced to 173-5 after 30 of their 40 overs, hitting 18 sixes in the process.  

Tight bowling by Geoff Brain 4-11 and Ben Pearson 2-2 brought the innings to a premature end for 220 off 37 overs.  

For Cheesewring, I Searle (60), A Southcott (52), K Binkum (41) and S Ham (34) were the main contributors.

Marc Glover and Ben Pearson opened up Yelverton's reply and the pair put on 29 before Pearson was bowled for 9. Sam Betts came and went first ball, adjudged lbw.

Gerry Keen joined Glover in the middle and the pair put on 94 for the third wicket before Keen was caught for 42 with the score on 123.  

Skipper Iain Cunningham was also dismissed first ball to leave the Bohemians on 123-4.  

Sandy Ralph was the next batsman to go, bowled for a duck and Dan Cooper followed shortly afterwards for 2.

With the score on 137-6 things looked bleak for the Bohemians as Chris Pearson walked to the wicket to join Glover. The pair had some luck, both being dropped on the boundary and put on an 80-run partnership off the next 8 overs with Glover completing his maiden century in the process.  

With four runs required, Glover was caught on the boundary for 116 (nine fours and seven sixes) and Pearson finished the game off with his 5th six to end up 44 n/o as the Bohemians won by 3 wickets on 214-7.
