Massive Moulton Harrox victory as Baston are battered

Red-hot Moulton Harrox stormed to a whopping 221-run victory over Baston on Saturday.

The side from Broad Lane made home advantage count in the South Lincs and Border League Division One clash, smashing 252-6 before bowling their opposition out for a meagre 31 in reply.

Hosts Moulton made a relatively low-key start, losing Mike Kearns Snr (8) and Chris Beale (1) early on.

But an impressive partnership between Jake Morton (57) and Jack Barnett (87) set the tone for the rest of the innings.

Wicket-keeper Morton cracked seven fours in his half-century, while Barnett found the rope an amazing 16 times.

Both eventually fell, but skipper Simon Juckes came in and added 31 with four fours and a six.

Alin Carter (16) also added a few runs, while Matthew Barnett (30 not out) and Louis Greetham (14 not out) provided a strong partnership at the death to ensure Harrox passed the 250 mark.

Chasing down such a big target was always going to be hard work for a Baston side that is struggling at the foot of the table – and so it proved.

Not one player made double figures in their reply, as the Harrox bowlers made hay.

Nohman Jarral (4-6 in six overs) starred as he removed both openers, while Juckes (2-11) and Jack Barnett (2-1) also enjoyed themselves.

The other wickets came from Carl Lamming (1-6) and Greetham (1-2) as Moulton enjoyed their best day of the season so far.
