Lincolnshire Premier League round-up as rain stops play at Bourne and Market Deeping
Bourne and Market Deeping both saw their chances of Lincolnshire Premier League victories washed away by the wet weather on Saturday.
Each of their matches were halted early in the second innings before the run chases had really started to gather pace.
Deeping had been put into bat at Outgang Road by visiting Sleaford in a match which was first reduced to 37 overs.
The hosts had totalled 123-4 with Kieran Judd and Connor Gillett the leading run-makers.
Opener Judd had made 29 before being bowled by Angus Youles who then claimed the wicket of Gillett for 31 on an afternoon when runs were in short supply.
Alex Green had made an early breakthrough in the Sleaford reply when he had Simon Godby caught by Jacob Howe with just two runs on the visitors' scoreboard.
However, they managed to play just 4.4 overs of the visitors' innings before rain stopped play with Sleaford on 20-1.
Lindum opener Pierce Morley-Barnes had been in fine form against Bourne in their clash at the Abbey Lawn.
Barnes and fellow opener William Wright put on a superb first wicket stand of 181 as Lindum made 235-6 from their 40 overs.
Wright had made 62 before he was stumped by Pete Morgan off the bowling of Jack Berry.
Berry then claimed the wicket of Morley-Barnes, courtesy of a Sam Harby catch, after he had hit 107 off 106 balls which included 10 fours and two sixes.
Dan Bandaranaike then bagged a quick-fire three wicket haul in Lindum's late push for runs to return 3-48 from seven overs. Berry ended his eight overs with a tidy 2-30.
Bourne managed just 4.3 overs of their reply when rain stopped play with openers Jordan Temple and Sam Evison unbeaten on 15 and 12 respectively.
Deeping are at home again this weekend when they host Grantham while Bourne make the trip to face Boston.
