- Credit: HUNTS CRICKET
A fine half-century from George Buckle wasn't enough as Hunts Cricket's U13 side fell to defeat against Northants.
Played at Corby, the hosts won the toss in the 40-over game and made 221-8 although there was still plenty to please the Huntingdonshire players and staff with the bowling.
Sam Andrew's eight over yielded 2-37 while Tobias Snape gave himself a chance of a hat-trick as he took 2-24 in his eight overs.
Buckle then showed his ability with the bat and he had good support for a time from Elliot Rattcliff, who managed 15.
However, they were always behind the run-rate and despite still have five wickets in hand, Buckle and Hunts eventually ran out of overs, finishing on 161-5.
Huntingdonshire women also suffered a defeat, going down by 243 runs at home to Hertfordshire in the East of England Women's County Championship.
The visitors to Ramsey batted first and made 342-7, Sophie Lawrence and Fiona Plumb getting three wickets each, but Katherine Speed's 23 was the top score in the reply for Hunts.
