The Sunday side once again failed to build on their solitary win as they lost out in the battle of the basement sides at Reforne.
Batting first, Triangle continued with the experimental opening partnership of Randell and Morris, which this week yielded 19 runs before Randell needlessly threw his wicket away.
Rich Samuel, on his break following Sunday lunch at The George, helped push the score onto 55 with 17, while Morris' innings paid tribute to Triangle greats Males and Quayle.
Joe Adkins was sent in to add some much needed spark to the innings, and his dashing 43 did just that. Morris' vigil came to the end after grinding out 23 runs, though his departure saw wickets fall more regularly and PRT ended on 156 all out.
Triangle superstar Simon Proffitt took the early wickets of Jack Evelaigh and Nick Voss and when Tom Dalkins removed the dangerous Sam Roles, gave the islanders hope of a rare win. Even with Matt Randell turning a few deliveries to claim 4 wickets, Triangle had given themselves too much to do and Charlton Down eased home with 3 wickets in hand.
The 1st XI got back to winning ways against bottom side Sherborne 2nds, but at a cost.
Skipper Matt Randell hit 104 against Sherborne 2nds after Triangle had slumped to 36/3. Randell and Dave Adkins mounted a recovery effort, however, Adkins was forced to retire hurt as a freak accident saw him break his collar bone and was shipped to Yeovil hospital.
Cameron Midgley picked up another golden duck, and Simon Barrett (2) followed soon after. It was left to Randell and Matt Barrett (29) to continue Akdins' work, with a cameo from Rich Samuels saw Triangle post 204/7
The 2nds promotion push suffered a blow in a 57-run defeat at home to Marnhull.
Batting first Marnhull were indebted to a century by Stuart Cundy (104*) after they slipped to 44/3. Tom Dalkins (3/25) and Jack Marsh (3/39) were the pick of the Triangle bowlers as Marnhull posted 204/7, helped largely by a number of drops in the field.
Richard Johnson bucked this trend on his return to the side after a 3 year absence by holding all 3 that came his way.
Triangle got off to a solid start as Ryan Price (22) and Johnson (12) added a quick 43. However, once both were dismissed there was a steady procession of wickets.
Khylo Farley led a one-man fightback, taking on all bowlers to hit 40 in no time at all, but once he departed the tail was exposed and Triangle were bowled out for 147, agonisingly short of another bonus point.
All of the games that TQ was in charge were classics in their own right, this was just one of them...
Tony Quayle's reign as Saturday 2nds captain was an experience for all involved. It was at times chaotic, but always guaranteed a fun day out. The side won about as many as they lost and this was the perfect proving ground for promising young players to introduce them to league cricket. They were able to mix it with their more experienced peers, who were either forever to play for the 2nds, or floating on the fringes of the first team.
This game was typical of the Quayle era, which usually involved TQ getting lost, inspecting the pitch then going against his original decision after winning the toss; but then somehow turning it into a victory.
All this match was missing was a batting collapse, but it did have the skipper turning his arm over, without costing the side the win. However, this day had a young Simon Proffitt getting the hump with his captain and going off for a sulk, plus ça change...
An understrength Sunday side made the long trip north and returned empty handed.
Seven brave souls, including perennial retiree Richard Stewkesbury travelled north to Sherborne to avoid a scratched match.
Triangle batted first ammassing a less-than-impressive 35 runs from just under 10 overs, Matt Randell scoring the bulk of the runs with 24. This achieved the day's first objective of not recording the club's lowest score. The home side knocked off the target in under 4 overs to secure maximum points.
It was a case of after the Lord Mayor's Show as the 1st XI slumped to defeat at home to Marnhull
Triangle's title push stalled as Marnhull completed the double over the islanders, eventually winning by 2 wickets.
Batting first Matt Randell's side posted a below-par 200, with Callan Laws topping the scoring with 45.
In reply James Vitali (68) and Caunt (48) put on 123 for the first wicket in short time, breaking the back of the run chase. Triangle fought back to take 8 wickets, including a hattrick for Simon Proffitt, but it was too late to prevent the visitors from winning with 10 overs remaining.
