RUTLAND LEAGUE: Gollands goes wild, fantastic Freear and top two win again
Wisbech went on a wild hitting spree in their Rutland Division One clash with Barnack at Harecroft Road yesterday (July 17).
Jamie Gollands thrashed 146 from 96 balls and Gary Freear cracked 114 not out from 52 balls as Wisbech piled up 338-5 in their 45 overs against Barnack.
Gollands hammered five sixes and 15 fours in his innings, while Freear blasted four sixes and 14 fours. Freear’s second 50 arrived from just 17 balls.
Barnack gave a spirited chase before closing on 215-7 with Shazad Amir smacking 76.
Top two Bourne and Nassington were both comfortable winners, although the latter were probably wary at half-time after mustering just 140 against bottom club Uppingham.
Harrison Craig top scored for Nassington with just 27, but the team’s bowlers rode to the rescue with James Pope taking 5-21 as Uppingham folded to 96 all out.
Bourne remain unbeaten after a six-wicket win at Stamford. Pete Morgan shone with ball rather than bat for a change claiming 3-19 in Stamford’s 162-9.
Tom Dixon bagged two wickets and then struck 54 as Bourne breezed home with four wickets in hand.
Peterborough Town’s young guns won the day at Market Deeping. Kieran Judd was 90 not out while Sohail Hayat (45) and Scott Howard (35) also contributed as Town eased past Deeping’s 192 with six wickets in hand.
