A HUNTINGDONSHIRE representative under 19 team were outclassed by first class county Northamptonshire last week.
Hunts paid the penalty for no fewer than six of their batsman reaching 20 but none making it past 30 in the friendly clash at Godmanchester Cricket Club.
Hunts won the toss and chose to bat but lost opener Alan Burton for a duck on the second ball.
Northants bowler Tom Worthington reduced the home side to 25 for 3 before David Clarke and Adam Cousins began to repair the early damage.

Cousins reached 24 before unluckily edging the ball onto his stumps. Hunts then slumped to 91 for 6 when spinner Phil Bolton removed Clarke (29) and Wayne Bradley (6).
Jay Szwajbak (22) and Mark Edwards (26) steadied the ship before Phil Adams (26) and James Smith (20) continued the good work with a 50 partnership, but no batsman went on to make a big score.

Hunts saw their 50 overs through but finished on a somewhat disappointing 189 all out.
Northants got off to a flying start in reply with opener Chioke Payne thrashing 27 runs from 21 balls in an opening 50 partnership with Dhaval Naik (82 no).
Swajbak bagged the wicket of Payne then took another two balls later but that was as good as it got for Hunts, Naik and David Murphy (71 n.o.) seeing the visitors home in 36.1 overs.
