No tons for ages then 2 come at once

Last season D&T had only one centurian all season but on Saturday Phil Snyman and Tom Petherick both hit match-winning tons for the first and second teams, respectively.

Phil blasted the Bridstowe attack for 155 in an innings described by a team mate as “a pure joy to watch”.  He hit 16 fours and 6 sixes and faced a total of 123 deliveries.   With  Chris Cook (49) he put on 142 for the first wicket and by the time Phil departed we were 266 for 5, en route to a whopping 285 for 6.   We then skittled Bridestowe for 135 with Jono Colegate taking 4 for 16 and skipper Harry Baxendale, 2 for 11.   Remarkably, after his batting heroics, Phil still managed to bowl 9 overs, conceding only 23 runs and bowling out Bridstowe’s top scorer, the destructive Brandon Horn, for 43.
