Classic Match - PRT vs Bisterne Willows

As there was a lack of cricket this weekend, here's a flashback to that halcyon summer of 2002...

Dave Males

After withdrawing from Sunday cricket for a few seasons, Triangle had to return at the bottom rung of the then substantial league ladder. Legendary captain Graham Elenor took up the challenge to rise up the divisions like a phoenix, and return Portland to their rightful place among the elite.

Triangle's assault on Division 7 got off to the perfect start, winning their first 5 games, all of them without much trouble. They travelled deep into the New Forest to take on Bisterne Willows, looking to cement their position as league leaders and rebuff the challenge of those upstarts Wimborne. Could Triangle keep that run going?

PRT vs Shillingstone 2nds

The 1st XI pulled victory from the jaws of defeat at home to Shillingstone.

Simon Proffitt

129*

Simon Proffitt proved to be Triangle's saviour as he hit an unbeaten 129 in a match-saving partnership with evergreen Simon Barrett (24) - performing his 2nd rescue act in as many weeks. The pair recovered the innings with an 84 run partnership, after Triangle had slumped to 39/4, giving the home side something to bowl at as PRT finished on 206/8.

Proffitt made some early breakthroughs with the ball, rushing through his overs to take 3/51, as he was late for a personal audience with Paul Merson. The visitors fought back and looked to be in control with the score at 108/4 at drinks, thanks to a series of dropped catches and misfields.

Triangle dug in to turn the match around, Matt Barrett (2/18) and Rich Samuel (2/27) working through the middle order, allowing Simon Barrett and Jon Cameron to attack the tail, bowling Shillingstone out for 165 to secure maximum points.

PRT vs Old Blandfordians

Triangle suffered their first defeat of the season away to Old Blandfordians.

A rag-tag team of 10, led by Cameron Midgley, with new addition Matt King and Richard Stewkesbury dragged out of retirement (and subsequently returning to it), travelled to Blandford and were soundly beaten.

Batting first on a drying wicket, the Triangle line-up was slowly dismantled over 21 overs, as they limped to a paltry total of 54. Joe Adkins, fresh from a cup final that went into extra time, top-scored with 16.

The hosts made short work of chasing down the total, reaching the target without loss before tea was due to be taken.

PRT vs Witchampton

The Triangle 1st XI played their first game of the season, after having to wait to properly get their campaign underway, following Cranborne scratching last week.

Team spokesman Elliott Sawyer paints pictures with words:

"Bowling first on an interesting green wicket Simon Proffitt (1/15) and Matthew Barrett (2/11) bowled a lively opening spell and Witchampton were soon 2 wickets down. The bowling was tight and after good spells from Rob Townley (4/28) and Rich Samuel (2/42) they found themselves 30-4. Wickets fell steadily after that, although it took us a while to close the innings having got them 8 down, but finally bowled them out for 98.

"Our chase started badly with a golden duck from Sawyer. It didn't get much better losing wickets at consistent intervals throughout the innings with only Joe Adkins (15) showing any real resistance. Finding ourselves 72 for 8 Simon Barrett (7 from 54 balls) and Matt Barrett (14 from 41 balls) finally put a partnership together batting for 10 overs, and with a nervous team on the boundary, got us over the finish line in the 42nd over.

"Well done guys. 2 wins from 2. Let's use that fighting spirit to get us through the rest of the season."

PRT 2nds vs Witchampton 2nds

Triangle made it 2 wins from 2, picking up maximum points against visitors Witchampton 2nds.

Tim Forshaw

92

Skipper George Munro's summary of the day:

"Batting first we got of to a fairly steady start through Ryan Price (18) and Dave Adkins (8) before both were caught behind. Introduced then were Timothy Forshaw and Stuart Sugg who shared an 82 partnership, with Forshaw (92) getting the lion's share. Sugg made 23. We made our way to 190, securing the maximum batting points.

"They got off to a flying start with their skipper Paul Allaway making 73 and leading them to 115-3 at drinks with George Munro, Jack Marsh and Nathan Cornish picking up 1 wicket apiece. After drinks was a different story with inspired bowling changes made by the skipper (with plenty of advice from his peers!!) bringing on Tom Dalkins (2-22) and Tony Morris (4-10) and Ryan Price (1-2) we managed to get them all out for 159 picking up 20 points in the process!

"A much needed and hard fought win today, thanks to all the boys and to Karen Sherratt and Leah Forshaw for tea, top job from everyone!"
