NOSCA Cricket Results

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Monday May 14 2018

The Inverness derby was the feature game in the North of Scotland league this weekend.

With both sides unbeaten in their opening matches it was always going to be a tight fought thing and they didn’t disappoint at the Northern Meeting Park.

Highland were pegged back to a mediocre 112, only Sohail Ullah featuring with the bat with a timely 37 runs.

Ben Robinson made his mark by taking 3 for 13, supported by Nuwan Eshwara with 3 for 24.

The Counties reply was going well until Dugdale was removed for 53 although on 81 for 2 the home side looked well placed to take the points.

3 wickets from Kacey Clement for only 16 runs and another three for Rory Cameron had Counties reeling and they fell short finishing on 104 all out.

Northern Counties 7 points, Highland 20

Huntly hosted Fort William at Castle Park, with the visitors setting 76 for the home side.

Ronnie Maclean top scored with 24 whilst Laura Grant shone by taking 4 for 11, Donald Morrison 2 for 7.

Despite a 2 for 10 from Ash Anjum, Huntly soon took the points with unbeaten contributions from Calum Howard (34) and Michael Clark (33).

Huntly 20 points, Fort William 2.

Forres made short work of their fixture against RAF Lossiemouth.

6 for 8 from Fraser Merricks gave the visitors to Grant Park no chance as they were all out for 49.

Forres passed the total for the loss of one wicket.

Buckie against Nairn was expected to be a bit of a battle but Nairn tamely gave way, finishing on 56 all out, with Joe Hough and Javen Aziz each taking 3 wickets.

33 from Barry Newlands easily saw his side across the line.

Buckie 20 points, Nairn 0.
