Saturday the 30th June, and table toppers La Manga visited The Woodbridge Oval in what promised to be a great day for Cricket lovers, unfortunately La Manga had not read the script and SACC proved that possibly they deserve to be the number one side on the Costa Blanca. SACC captain Laundon won the Toss and asked La Manga to set a score, SACC bowlers yet again took control early.
Pennick bowling exceptionally well but again without much luck, his 9 over's for 17 runs and 1 wicket not telling the true story as he beat the bat often. Crompton, on early this week, showed his class and again mesmerized the batsmen, 9 over's 3 wickets for 17, Fell bowled his best spell yet for the team as he returned a fantastic 9 over 9 run 3 wicket spell. Taylor bowled his spell and proved a handful, 8 over's 10 runs for 1. Only Brook jnr hung around but only reached 20 runs from 60 balls faced. 14 wides helped La Manga reach 94.
SACC openers Spencer and Muñoz reached 60 from 10 over's before Spencer(33) walked by the ball and was stumped. Muñoz reached 46 and Nadeem 8 as 95 runs came up in the 19th over for the loss of only 1 wkt. The SACC team received 20 points and closed the gap at the top to 6 points with a game in hand, the return match is this Saturday at La Manga and SACC are sure to meet an hostile reception as the teams fight it out for top spot.
