Young Dons put Sarisbury to the sword

Posted on

Hambledon under-13s recorded another comprehensive victory as they crushed Sarisbury.

After losing the toss and being asked to bat, the young Dons made light work of the opposition attack by scoring 143 for two in 12 overs.

Hambledon openers Seb Byers and Tom Toogood led the way in their usual style - running at every opportunity.

And when they retired, Ollie Southon and Jack Thistlethwayte continued the onslaught with a series of hard, straight hits.

Harry Hoolahan and Toogood lost their wickets in the final overs, as they attempted to squeeze every run available.

After the break, Sarisbury got off to a good start because of some unusually wide bowling from the Dons.

But they soon tightened up and restricted their rivals to 65 for two at the close.

The pick of the bowlers was Southon, with two for 14 - his second wicket coming courtesy of a great catch behind the stumps by the superb Thomas Sherry.

All in all, it was another great performance from a team who are raising the bar in the indoor game.
