Homerton won the toss and chose to bat first on a pitch ideal for batting due to a very fast outfield.

The opening pair proved difficult to breakthrough with some fine batting, and it wasn't until Hutch got his well deserved 50 that a few wickets started to fall.

Rizwan ensured that Homerton finished with a flourish, but it was a solid bowling performance from the Marrocas to restrict Homerton to 133 on such a quick pitch.

However, the Morrocas innings got off to an awful start with 2 wickets falling in the 2nd over.

With the run rate stifled and wickets continuing to tumble it was looking increasingly likely that Homerton would run away with it.

Hugo Boatright, the number 6 batsmen had other ideas, producing a devastating innings, hitting 12 fours and single handedly turning the match on its head.

He was well supported by Tom Harper, who took up the reigns once Hugo got his 50.

It was a nervous ending as Homerton hit back with 2 wickets, meaning they only needed one more to win.

Fortunately for the Morrocas they managed to scrape over the line for a great victory, keeping their title hopes on track.
