Cricket: Bellwood Century in Dumfries run chase

1 07 2014

In the Western Premier League on Saturday, Stafforce Dumfries faced an imposing total at Ayr when the league leaders set a score of 327 for 7 in the first innings. Opening bowler Niall Alexander took three of the wickets to fall.

Dumfries provided a good response thanks to a 177 run partnership between Chris Bellwood and Peter Lojszczyk. Bellwood reached his century but Lojszczyk fell nine runs short as did Dumfries when they finished on 269 for 7.

In the Western Premier Reserve League, Eco-Genics Nunholm had a good five wicket win against Ayr 2nds, Cambusdoon. Stuart Alexander took early wickets and finished with four as Cambusdoon were bowled out for 129. Gei Singh and Fraser Strachan each took three wickets.

Andy Reed then top scored with 44 to enable the target to be reached for five wickets down.

In the Sunday friendly against Dalton, Dave Strachan was the JB Houston Dumfries Man of the Match with his score of fifty two not out but his side finished shy by some thirty three runs.

This Saturday in the league, Stafforce Dumfries play East Kilbride at home and Eco-Genics Nunholm play East Kilbride 2nds away.
