North Kildare Cricket Club Men's 1st XI v North County 2 on Mon 09 Jun 2014 at 6.00pm
North Kildare Cricket Club Won By 58 Runs

Match report North Kildare played host to North County in their second meeting within two weeks. The last time the two teams met, the firsts blew their opponents away, but with a few faces that weren't seen previously, there was a certain element of unawareness as to what team the firsts would be up against.

Neayvn won the toss and chose to bat (no surprises there). Mark and Manny opened up and got off to a reasonably good start, before a slight tumble of wickets - Manny, Markie and Rob all back in the clubhouse after just eight overs, the score 50/3 at this point. Wazzle and Imran then unleashed on the County attack and when Imran fell, Wazzle and Tom continued in the exact same fashion, reaching a 58 run partnership in double-quick time. Wazzie reached his 50 off a sluggish 23 balls, hitting a mere 7x6's in his knock.. more sixes than singles in his sensational and extremely entertaining 54. When Wazzle departed, the score had moved onto 132/5 after just 15 overs. Vossie came and went, but Tom, Walshe and Andy added some valuable runs down the order which meant that NK finished on a very respectable total of 179/9 off their 20 overs.

In reply, Satch got the early breakthrough that was needed to put the pressure on County and wickets began to fall regularly thanks to some great bowling from Tom and Manny in particular. After 10 overs, County had slumped onto 67/5, which would've been a massive mountain to climb if they were to chase down their target from that point. All the bowlers used were in the wickets, apart from Wazzie for the second day running - again, scratching his head as to how he couldn't snatch one. In the end, County could only reach 121 from their 20 overs, falling 58 runs short of their required total. A mention has to go to Andy Chase for his sublime catch at long-on - covering huge ground and diving full length in front of himself, he just managed to get his finger tips underneath the ball to the delight of the NK support, which topped a very good fielding performance all round.

So - the firsts move onto the semi-final of the Tillain Cup in sensational fashion. Thanks to sheer brute force from Wazzie and excellence with the ball and in the field (apart from a couple of comical blunders from Richie Withey who worked hard to dust some rust off), the firsts are just two wins away from lifting their first piece of silverware this season.
