Premier team into the semi’s!

Posted on February 23, 2015

Cheshire premier team have progressed into this season’s ICC semi finals after victory against Kent in the quarter final. The match was a battle as Kent came to Wey valley in confident mood. The first session saw Cheshire win both singles games comfortably, however the pairs struggled and Kent took both. Session 2 was a similar story, Cheshire taking both triples and Kent both fours. At half time the match was level at 8-8. Things turned Cheshire’s way in the third session with a superb performance by all the players. The singles once again took both games and therefore the bonus points, while the pairs, after a troubled first session, came out fighting and secured vital victories to take the session 8-0. Kent secured the pairs bonus points after their victories in session 1 proved too much to claw back. After a brilliant session 3 the match stood at 18-10  to Cheshire. The job was finished in the fourth session as the triples bagged a win and a draw, along with the bonus points. The fours won one game but missed out on the agg, so the match finished 25-15 to Cheshire.

Credit must go to Kent who put up a battling performance, which we came through thanks to a fantastic team spirit and some great play.

Next up is Essex at Church Gresley, a very different surface from the one we faced at Wey Valley!
