Good win for seconds

Ponteland II (164-6) v Lintz II (151-9) Northumberland & Tyneside Senior League, Division B1

Ponteland kept pace with the league leaders as they achieved a 13-run victory against Lintz on Saturday.

The home side batted first and an excellent partnership between Paul McReady (52) and John Lumb (41) took them past 100. Thomas Reeman (24) and Ben Harris (17 not out) played some useful knocks as Pont finished their 45 overs on 164 for six.

Bowes (73) was the Lintz dangerman and the game’s key moment came when he was run out by Liam Cosgrove, who also picked up three wickets. The away side scored 151 for nine.
