Derby Day Delight!
Lowerhouse won the first of back to back Derbies with a 5 wicket victory at Turf Moor On Sunday.
Burnley batted first scoring 175-8 from their 50 overs with telling contributions from Mohammad Jamal (41) and Steve Brunt (46) after an early innings slump had seen them slip to 66-5. Wickets were shared between the bowlers with Brendan 2-47 from 17 and the skipper 2-36 from 12 the main contributors.
In reply, House lost Finch early bowled by Graham Lalor but Chris Bleazard (53) and Will Driver (29) steadied the ship leading House to 62 before Will fell caught behind off the bowling of James Capstick. Brendan and Blez lead the lads to 115-2 leaving them well in control before Brendan (23) fell caught in the deep off the bowling of Barhat Tripathi and Blez was stumped leaving House 118-4. Hassan Khan and Stuart Grant saw House home both unbeaten on 22.
Lowerhouse will be hoping to repeat their performance this coming Saturday when they meet Burnley for the second time in 6 days in the Worsley Cup Quarter Finals at Turf Moor.
