NCL RESULTS SPECIAL: Guest the star man as Brixworth stun leaders Peterborough
Brixworth caused the shock of the day in the Hevey Building Supplies Northants Cricket League Premier Division with a six-wicket win over leaders Peterborough.
A strong bowling performance saw Borough dismissed for just 150, with three wickets apiece for Stuart Bonthuys Ashley Starmer and Callum Guest.
Brixworth then eased to their second win of the season as they made 152 for four, with Guest completing an excellent day as he made a match-winning 73 not out.
There was frsutration for Saints as they fell one wicket short of beating Horton House.
Saints made 254 for six, with Harry Adair hitting a superb 116 and Joe Collins 41, while the pick of the Horton bowlers was Matthew Chalcraft who took three for 64.
Northants teenager Saif Zaib then took four for 51 and Nick Bell three for 73 as Saints pressed for victory, but Horton held on for the draw at 200 for nine, with Ewan Cox hitting 66 and Ben Wall a crucial 44 not out.
Reigning champions Old Northamptonians’ patchy defence of their title continued as they were forced to hang on for a draw against Finedon Dolben at Billing Road.
Callum Berrill’s 84 not out was backbone of Finedon’s 182 for eight, with Richard Kaufman claiming three for 53.
The ONs reply was a stuttering one and they ended up staving off defeat at 169 for nine, with Kaufman also shining with the bat as he made 54, and Daniel Harris 46.
Chris Todd took five for 24 for Finedon and Chris Goode three for 31.
Second-placed Oundle failed to capitalise on Peterborough’s defeat as they too lost, going down by four wickets to Geddington.
Mark Hodgson hit 75 and Peter Foster 72 as Oundle posted 214 for seven, with Jack Thurman claiming three for 24, but that wasn’t enough.
Amit Dhadwal was Geddington’s main man as they hit back with 218 for six, scoring 103 while Tiann Raubenheimer made 38.
Rushton closed to within 13 points of Peterborough as they absolutely thrashed Rushden by a massive 285 runs.
Former Northants opener James Kettleborough led the way as he smashed 164 to steer Rushton to 347 for six, with support coming from Ben Mansell (63), Ben Coddington (48) and Andrew Reynoldson (47no).
Mudassar Hussain was the only bowler to hold his head high as he took five for 57.
Rushden’s batsmen then crumbled in the face of such a huge target, and they were dismissed for a paltry 62 with Jake Higginbotham bagging six for 23 and Ben Parker four for 39.
James Warsop hit 107 for Stony Stratford as they totalled 221 all out in their clash with Wollaston, with Christopher Perry snaring four for 45.
Matthew Jones then hit 42 for Wollaston, but support was in short supply as they were bowled out for 146 to lose by 75 runs, Graham Simpson the pick of the bowlers with three for 35.
