Chagford v Ipplepen

THIS top of the table clash between Chagford and Ipplepen in second place was ruined by heavy showers. 

Ipplepen, put into bat first, lost Matt Quattley for 4 with just six runs on the board when he was bowled by Billy Searle - but the rain as usual soon stopped play.  Every effort was made to continue play despite an early tea, but a heavy shower at 5pm made the pitch and waterlogged outfield unfit for play and the game was abandoned, with Ipplepen at 45-1 wicket with overseas player Moriz Hartman 24 not out.

Chagford and Ipplepen six points each.

This was doubly disappointing for both sides as Stoke Gabriel in third place were able to play and in beating Clyst Hydon now take an eight point lead over Chagford in second and Ipplepen one point behind them in third.

The weather is creating chaos in the league, and Chagford in their four games have three abandon part way through and one completely rained off.

Plymouth fourths v Chagford seconds

THIS match was dominated by Chagford first team player Neil Rowlands, as without his fine all round performance the visitors would not have won this close counter played at Torpoint, on a wet wicket.

Batting first Chagford lost Filor, Will Searle and Toby Gostling and Trevor Oats for just 17 but Neil Rowlands stood firm in a workmanlike Innings as Chagford struggled to 48-7.  However a partnership of 42 between Rowlands and Rahul Brijnath 23 took the score 90-8 but at 99 Rowlands was run out for 42 in effort to keep the strike and the innings closed at 108 all out.   

Premiership player Sam Stein was outstanding in the Plymouth attack with 3-18 in 13 overs and there were two wickets each for Jack Widdell and Sam Knapman.

In reply Plymouth lost at early wicket but Phil Stephenson and Stein carefully took the score along to 27 before the dangerous Stein was bowled by skipper for the day Paul Wakefield.     The entry of Neil Rowlands into the Chagford attack quickly paid dividends as he dismissed Stephenson and he continued to take wickets in his 7.4 overs to finish with 6-15 to give Chagford a victory which at one time looked unlikely.

 Chagford 16 points  Plymouth 5pts.
