Type of Game: League
First XI 244 for 6 - Harefield 245 for 7
Performance of the Day: Bret Van Niekerk 69 Not Out
A vast improvement on last week from their batsmen could not stop Maidenhead and Bray 1st XI slipping to a second successive defeat away at Harefield on Saturday.
Will Ballantyne and James Billington made a steady start after electing to bat before Ballantyne fell in the 11th over for 13.
Billington was Joined at the crease by James Tattersall and the pair put on 70 before Billington was bowled by Morris for 55.
When Tattersall and Charlie Rodger were both out shortly after, it took the uncomplicated batting of captain Brett van Niekerk and Alex Hess to steady the ship.
Hess was eventually out for an important 21, which brought James Coyne to the middle. After a flurry of boundaries from both Coyne and van Niekerk, Maidenhead and Bray crossed the 200 mark.
The captain continued his explosive batting, hitting four monstrous sixes into the trees to push the visitors to 244 for six wickets in their 52 overs, with van Niekerk on 69 not out.
Consistent bowling from Alkesh Vaja and Coyne restricted the home side early on and, as the pressure built, Vaja was rewarded with the wickets of both openers while Coyne claimed Richards' scalp at three.
Coyne then bowled both Petley and Baldwin but Harefield regrouped and Vyas showed some powerful strokeplay, punishing several fielding mistakes on his way to 89 before he fell LBW to Shabbir Mookhtiar.
Despite a compact 2nd spell from Vaja, dismissing Morris for 41, Harefield eased home with 2.3 overs to spare and only seven wickets down.
