Lewdown Cricket Club 1st XI v Ottery St. Mary on Sat 27 Jun 2009 at 14.00
Match was Drawn Winning

Match report Warmth and sunshine greeted Ottery St Mary for their first ever visit to Lewdown's Recreation Field.
Ottery must have been thinking it was going to be their day after winning the toss, putting Lewdown in to bat and then reducing them to 88-5 after 26 overs, enter Sri Lankan, Mevan Porage, who carried on his form from last week to score a superb 101, at the other end Carl Weeks and Ad Clements battled well and gave the strike to Porage as often as possible, this enabled Lewdown to reach the competetive total of 220-8, Kris Harris (27) and Harry Gerring (28) the other main run getters.
In reply the Ottery batsmen were soon in trouble with Adee Edmonds and Phil Yeo bowling with aggression and accuracy they were reduced to 35-4. A 53 partnership followed but ended with the introduction of spinners Porage and Clements, Ottery were reduced to 126-7 after 35, this left 11 overs to get the 3 wickets needed to win the match. Skipper Charlie Hughes brought the opening bowlers back on and with an attacking field Lewdown were hopeful of finishing the job, Yeo took a wicket in his first over back but that was as good as it got for Lewdown as Ottery's numbers 9 and 10 batted out the last 9 overs for the draw. Adee Edmonds finishing with 3-44, Phil Yeo 2-28 and Ad Clements 2-24. At 29, extras, for only the 2nd time this season got below 30, this is an area that still has to improve as we cannot afford to be bowling an extra 5 or 6 overs as well as the runs we're giving away.
Although a little dissapointed not to win the 15pts gained keep Lewdown second in the league table at the halfway stage.
