OPENER T Halliwell carried his bat throughout Frodsham’s innings when they elected to bat first at Wistaston Village.
He finished on 54 not out and with fellow opener Jaymie Smith contributing 22, it was disappointing that Frodsham finished on only 113-7 in the rain-affected game.
The home side went for the runs – and got them in just 25 overs for the loss of three wickets – which left Frodsham still waiting for their first win of the season.
Jamie London and Matt Deakin each took one wicket but Frodsham had to be content with six points from the game – one less than they would have got if the match had been cancelled like so many in the league.
The team remains rooted at the bottom of the league.
Frodsham 2nd enjoyed another victory, however, taking on the Wistaston second string at Frodsham.
The visitors were all out for 123 in 38 overs, with Ian Deakin taking 3-13, Martin Dodd 2-23 and Pete O’Grady 2-6.
Frodsham lost seven wickets reaching their target but it was a comfortable win – moving them into fourth place in their league. Daniel Connolly top scored with 37 and Brendan Connolly 22.
Kingsley lost heavily at Runcorn after the home side had set a challenging target of 193 for the loss of eight wickets. Charlie Loy, Ben Stoddart and Tom Waring took two wickets each.
When Kingsley batted, their usually reliable line-up flopped completely and they were all out for 71 with only two batsmen getting into double figures.
Kingsley 2nd’s game was cancelled.
Alvanley drew their game at Barrow after batting first and posting 166-3. Skipper Michael Rowlands hit 65 and Simon Gee an unbeaten 51.
Barrow lost two quick wickets to Christ Charles (2-42) but then dug in and finished on 143-3.
Alvanley 2nd lost by nine wickets after being bowled out for 74 by Chester Boughton Hall.
