UPLYME & Lyme Regis 1st X1’s batting failed again this afternoon (Saturday) when they were bowled out in 23 overs for just 63 runs, 39 of which came from extras.
Sandford arrived at the King George V still smarting from being dismissed for just 28 runs by Chardstock in their opening game last week.
But having been put into bat after Uplyme won the toss, their batsmen rose to the challenge and restored some pride as they amassed 205-8 off their allotted 45 overs.
Openers Shaun Hawkins (35) and Christopher Blake (75) set the pace, putting on 61 for the first wicket.
Bowling honours for Uplyme were shared by Steve Batey (3-35 off 9) and Sam Wooster (3-25 off 9).
But the Uplyme bastmen failed to respond with just 14 runs on the scoreboard with seven batsmen back in the pavilion. Rob Thom, batting at No 8, put up some resistance with 23 runs to his credit, the only player to get into double figures.
Uplyme & Lyme Regis 5 points, Sandford 20 points.
