Report
Northwood claimed the Harwoods Renault Indoor League Division 2 title at Ryde Sports Centre last Sunday, with an unexpectedly easy victory over third placed Ryde Cavaliers Nomads. Northwood, knowing defeat would hand the trophy to GKN II, took to the field determined not to slip up at the last hurdle. Sharp fielding quickly had the Cavs Nomads in trouble and, despite a rear-guard action by last man Simon Bligh (22), the Nomads never recovered from four run-outs and were all out for just 58. With little pressure on the batsmen, Northwood captain Gavin Paddock (30no) steered his team home in just 4.5 overs. With second place already secured, and nothing to play for, a disappointed GKN II took their frustration out on the IW Health Associates, racking up 167-4 (Alan Johns 79no), a total the Health Associates couldn’t match, slipping to 86 all out (Rob Cooney 3-23) in reply. Godshill overcame the IW Prison Officers in a mid-table battle, both sides eager to end the season with a win. Godshill put their recent batting difficulties behind them, racing to 63-1 off 5 overs before the Prison Officers rediscovered line and length to dry up the runs, resticting Godshill to 106-5 (Rowe 3-19) from the 12 overs. The Prison Officers, led by Adam Wilson (27no), kept up with the run rate but losing regular wickets cost the chase momentum, leaving them needing 12 to win off the last over with 2 wickets in hand. Godshill kept their nerve, taking both wickets for just 3 runs, the Prison Officers all out on 97. Ryde Cavaliers Veterans won a low scoring affair against fellow strugglers Newport II. Newport, despite limiting the Veterans to 96-4, couldn’t cope with an accurate bowling display and ended on 79-4 in reply.
