Max Cusack took five wickets as Moulton Harrox defeated Woodhall Spa in the South Lincs and Border League Premier Division on Saturday.

Cusack helped to bowl the visitors out for just 78 after Matthew Barnett (56) and skipper Chris Beale (62) had recorded half-centuries for the hosts.

The pair helped Harrox to a total of 197-8 and they went on to win by 199 runs thanks to Cusack’s fine bowling display.

Third-placed Bourne were nine-wicket winners at Welby after bowling the hosts out for just 89.

In reply, Robert Dunn and Archie Stroud were unbeaten on 38 and 33 respectively while Jordan Temple played his part with four wickets.

There was double disappointment for Long Sutton batsman Chris Booth on Saturday.

He fell agonisingly short of a century with a superb knock of 93 and then saw his side beaten by three wickets in their South Lincs and Border League Premier Division clash wth Lindum Ramblers.

Booth scored more than half of his side’s 182-6 but that figure wasn’t quite enough as Grant Watkins hit 95 as Lindim got over the line.

Billingborough 2nd and Spalding 2nd continue to battle for the Division One title.

Richard Wells hit an ubeaten 53 for Billingborough but it wasn’t enough as Heckington closed to within four points of the table summit.

Spalding were beaten at Baston by just nine runs, Mark Richardson hitting 65 for the hosts.

Grantham 2nd, Market Deeping 2nd and Boston 2nd are also within sight of the leaders and all have games in hand.
