Gloomy Saturday, Brilliant Sunday – Weekend Roundup

Mixed fortunes for the club this weekend, which saw two losses on Saturday and two wins on Sunday.

On Saturday, the Third Eleven took on Haslingden at home. Robson won the toss and decided to bat – the top 4 all got starts but no one was able to kick on and House lost wickets at regular intervals. Keagan De Vries was the mainstay of the innings and hit 37 in Lowerhouses’ 117 all out of 35.2 overs. In reply, a tight finish saw Lowerhouse get Haslingden 9 down, before some big shots from Leon Brennan saw them over the line with 2 overs to spare.
