Cricket: Dumfries lose out to Uddingston

17 06 2014

On Saturday, in the Western Premier League, Stafforce Dumfries lost their away match at Uddingston despite a good bowling effort to restrict Uddingston in the first innings.

Uddingston were well placed at 89 for 2 at the half way mark after Gul top scored with 31. However, on that score, the Solway Offset Dumfries Man of the Match, Scott Beveridge, took two wickets in an over and Peter Lojszczyk claimed an lbw.

Thereafter the bowlers were able to restrict the batting side to 149 for 9 with Chris McCutcheon and Niall Alexander each taking two wickets.

However Dumfries lost three early wickets inside six overs and never really recovered. Chris Bellwood then hit 26 but became one of McKenzie’s five wickets. Chris Brockwell scored 23 to keep the run chase alive but the side were finally all out for 110 in the 35th over.
