Worksop College won a thrilling T20 OW game by 10 runs in a high scoring affair at the College on Friday night.

A bumper crowd saw 2 spells from Harvey Round and Tom Giles potentially make the difference in a run fest that saw 204-4 play 193-4. The wicket was flat, the outfield like lightning and the College made hay early on putting on 121 for the first wicket in 12 overs. Rumistrzewicz (59) and Giles (68) used the power play well and kept their foot on the gas all the time. Alfie Bell and Louie Owens also scored quickly to ensure a challenging total was posted. Archie Shannon was the pick of the OW bowlers bowling his left arm cutters at a RPO of 5.25.  After a quick BBQ (thanks to our amazing catering team) and a quick beer (the OWs not the College) the opening pair of Keast and Callis set about the task with gusto. Both fresh from unbeaten league 150s last weekend, these 2 Premier league plunderers tucked into the bowling in the powerplay and raced to an opening partnership of 136 in under 13 overs. Ex Yorkshire player Callis eventually perished to Giles for 67 off 44 and when the dynamic Keast (88 off 58) departed to Round, the game was back in the balance. Tight bowling from Round and Giles at the key moments backed up by some good work on the ground in the field saw the College home as dot balls arrived and wickets fell in the pursuit of quick runs.

Adam Tillcock, Head of Cricket, told us, "this was a fantastic event with music, bar, BBQ and lots of friendly faces. It was great to see so many OWs back at the College and a Friday night game looks to be a great was of engaging our OW community. We hope for something even bigger and better next year. A heartfelt thanks to the OWs for bringing a competitive side and it was genuinely a high-quality game played to win, but in the correct spirit."
