Horley 1’s beat Dinton 2’s by 9 wickets

Dinton 2’s 224
Horley 1’s 226-1

A maiden 1st XI century from Sam Pearce gave Horley a comfortable 9 wicket win against bottom side Dinton 2 in Cherwell League Division 3.

Pearce’s 100* was superbly supported by a third half century in as many innings from Andy Parker as they put on 202 for the 2nd wicket chasing Dinton’s 224 total. Horley’s run chase was also assisted by an astonishing 61 extras.

Earlier, Pete Papenfus (3-22) and Adam Webb (2-60) had reduced the visitors to 91-5 with Pearce taking 3 catches at slip. Dave Eaton (4-72) came on to wrap up the tail but couldn’t prevent Ollie Chaplin hitting a late 55 batting at 10 to give Dinton a respectable total.

The recent resurgence in Horley’s form has left them just 43 points off the promotion places.
