La Manga c.c v LMTCC Torrevieja C.C on Sun 01 Oct 2017 at 11am
LMTCC Lost by 6 wickets

Match report And so the Final League game was set set, Torre travelled to La manga resort with 10 men but with the best intentions to finish the league season with a high.

with the pitch being damp from the september night dew and Torrevieja finally winning a toss (3 times out of 10 this season) they decided to bat first.
Skipper K.Wood and C.Guichard lead the batting attack and looked to set a key opening partnership but with the opening bowlers of T.Vine and Rumo bowling tight lines the batsmen only managed 25 runs from the first spell of bowling but were still at the crease. A Bowling change saw the runs speed up when R.Williams went for 18 runs in 3 overs but creating chances when K.Wodd was dropped twice in 1 over.
Reaching almost half way through the innings the batsmen had reached the 50 partnership and decided to start the attack but saw C.Guichard stumped by some quick hands and saw the drinks break come 5 balls early. 53/1.
quick drink to regroup, Torre knew the 2nd 20 overs meant that the top order batsmen had the license to start attacking but saw P.Harvey smash one to mid-wicket but expertly taken by a one handed catch by S.Simkins. D.Reid came to the crease and was soon walking back when trying to strike some big shots and mis timed the ball comfortably to cover. P.Michael came in to join K.Wood and watched as he tried to sweep a straight one and was given LBW for a well worked 41.
Hein entered at his new spot at no.6 and contributed Little before being caught by another amaxing catch at point. The common middle order callaspe saw Torre 53/1 change to 75/4 in the space of 8 overs. P.Singh pushed a good few singles with P.Michael before being caught behind and then walked in R.Singh with good intentions and assisted P.Michael in a very valuable partnership at the end. P.Michael was finally bowled after a cameo of runs and pulling his hamstring a couple overs before. C.Wood came in but defended T.Vine out while R.Singh but some final runs on the board.
Torre pushed a well earnt 148/7 of their 40 overs

A very motivated Torre took to the field and prooved to be deadly as the fielding was Sharp and bowling was quick. Wicket in the 3rd over saw an amazing one handed catch in the slips from P.Michael after rellieving himself from the stumps. Followed by another wicket from C.Guichard taking a catch of his own bowling to dismiss the 2nd opening batsmens. 15/2. few overs ticked on and T.Vine was kept very quiet as C.Wood bowled good áreas with alot of pace and soon got T.Vine to Nick one thro to K.Wood who took the gloves for the day. few overs later saw A.Mcdowell cash in on a wicket as he got Rumo to Nick another one behind for K.Wood to catch comfortably. by the 20 over mark La Mange had managed 68/4 with Torre seeming the team infront. BUT with the drinks break saw D.Williams the no.3 batsmen gain some ground and put on an important partnership with R.James to wear out the torre field and bowlers. overs passed with singles coming here and there and ALOT of wides assisting. Lack of energy saw bowlers losing aim, a few mis fields come along and before knwoing, La Manga needing 15 to win of the last 8 overs. Both teams seeing the finsh line, Energy came back to Torre and the bowling became tight again. 5 overs left and 10 to win. But with C.Wood and R.SIngh bowled out, P.Singh stood up and wanted responsability. but couldnt stop D.Williams who wanted to finish the game there and then who hit 3 4s to end the game.

A good game where cricket was the winner and La Manga yet again chasing the score for the 2nd time this season in what was another close finish.

Friendlies are now being played by Torre in the following weeks and soon the anual AGM where the trophies will have new owners.
