Matlock earn battling draw with Marehay
Battling Matlock earned a creditable draw with Ripley-based Marehay to earn 10 league points.
Batting first on a good, if green wicket, Marehay certainly didn't hang around, with Brown (41), Buckley (76*) and Harry (35) find little difficulty and the boundaries often.
Though Marehay never really got away, no Matlock bowler will be recalling a great day at the office.
In reply, Matlock certainly came out of the traps, and though the run rate was healthy throughout, wickets fell.
Karl Tomlinson made 39, and Drew Mullaney an aggressive 59, but when he and Guna Seenavasan fell in successive balls, it was left to Steven Moore and to 15 year-old Adam Heppenstall (12*) to see out the last six overs.
