DROPPED CATCH PROVES CRUCIAL FOR ST ERME:
Luckett 225-9. St Erme 150
St Erme's poor form continued in Division 2 East on Saturday when they lost by 75 runs at league leaders Luckett.
Batting first, Luckett's star all-rounder Andrew Brenton top-scored with a hard-hitting 64, after being dropped when on just five. St Erme spinners Kevin Wilcock and Jordan Wilkinson then worked their way through the Luckett middle order, taking wickets at regular intervals to reduce them to 150-7, before the lower order rallied through Jonathan Hoskin (38), Luke Brenton (25), and Mark Southcott (24no) as Luckett closed on 225-9.
Wilcock used all his experience to return the excellent figures of 4-24 in 12 overs and was well supported by young Wilkinson with 2-26.
St Erme's top order was blown away by the opening burst of pace bowlers Andrew Brenton (5-48) and John Schuttkacker (3-20) as they were reduced to 80-7, with only opener Tom Armstrong showing some dogged resistant with 23.
Following an extended break for a heavy shower, St Erme's lower order batsmen applied themselves admirably, lead by Jordan Wilkinson with an accomplished 34 not out they added some respectability to the score pushing St Erme's total to 150 all out.
Luckett 225-9 (A Brenton 64, J Hoskin 38, L Brenton 25, M Southcott 24; K Wilcock 4-24, J Wilkinson 2-26).
St Erme 150 (J Wilkinson 34no, T Armstrong 23, D Chorley 23).
