Carlisle match taken to wire



LANGHOLM 2nd XI bowlers took their game to the wire against Carlisle 4ths in their EVCL Sunday league home match last Sunday.
The home team’s score of 148 was in large part due to a debut 50 by John Bell and the bowlers taking the game to the wire as Carlisle stumbled over the line with nine wickets down.
After being put into bat, Langholm found themselves 8 for 2 in the eighth over after losing openers Ross Rae for 4 and Hughie Donaldson.
John Bell and Langholm’s skipper for the day, Bailey Donaldson, came to the crease and led the recovery, taking the score to 84 before Donaldson was caught behind for 31 off spinner Graham.
There followed a flurry of wickets as Langholm lost 3 three in 5 overs and lost three batsmen without scoring. Bell retired not out on 50 and this suddenly left Langholm 100 for 6 after 23 overs.
Jaimie Ashton-Smith nurtured the young tail, adding a further 35 runs before the ninth wicket fell.
Bell came back in and he continued where he left off with a six and a four. He fell for 62, clean-bowled by Teasdale with the score on 148 with Ryan Johnstone not out on 7.
The bowlers made a good start but this was not to be. Carlisle got a flier, adding 48 in five overs, mainly because of Du Plessis who hit 55 before he had to retire.
With him gone, Langholm gained a bit more control and they began to pick up wickets.
A Rae catch ended Tiffin for 2 and Currie gave Johnstone a catch off Rae’s bowling which left Carlisle 72 for 2 in the 12th over.
Johnstone dismissed Turner for 6 and Corey Park got in on the action as Teasdale spooned a catch to Ashton-Smith to leave Carlisle 85 for 4 in the 19th.
Tiffin and Reeves looked to stabilise the innings and added 26 before Ashton-Smith started a collapse. He got rid of Tiffin, Brown and Reeves to leave Carlisle 138 for 7.
Donaldson took a caught and bowled to dismiss Smith and Ashton-Smith clean-bowled Graham to leave the visitors nine down for 143 with 6 needed.
Du Plessis came back in to join Titterington and the Carlisle bats saw them to victory, with Du Plessis finishing on 60.
The wicket takers were Ashton-Smith 4 for 21, Johnstone 1 for 14, Park 1 for 17, Gordon 1 for 27, Donaldson 1 for 31 and Rae 1 for 36.
This was a good game played in the right spirit and both sides deserve a lot of credit for the entertainment they supplied to the watching crowd.
