PLENTY of our teams matches fell foul to the weather on Saturday as a number of games were left evenly poised as rain forced the players from the field of play.

Middlezoy posted 194-5 in their Division 1 match with Wellington thanks to 73 from Nathan Barnard and 42 from Marc Troman. Barnard claimed 3-28 in Wellington's reply of 116-4 before rain stopped play.

North Petherton had no fixture this weekend.

In Division 2 North Newton suffered a hefty nine-wicket loss after C Street (57) top scored in their total of 157-7.

P Jenkins took the only wicket in reply though as North Perrott chased down the runs after 35 overs.

In Division 3, Bridgwater A shared the points with Uphill Castle. Uphill hit 150 with Ian Hewson (4-34) and Kyran Devitt (3-26) doing the damage for the home side.

In reply, Bridgy were 41-3, before the weather intervened.

Kilve were also left frustrated as they closed on 22-1 chasing Staplegrove's 99 for victory. Wickets from Ryan Penwell (3-19), J Darrell (2-11) and S Barton (2-25) helped to dismiss the visitors but only nine overs were possible in Kilve's reply.

Wembdon 2nds were 35-1 in reply to Weston super Mare's 180-4 when rain stopped their match. P Gliddon was the pick of the Wembdon bowlers with 3-35 but G Lowe (18 not out) and A Phillips (13 not out) were left stranded in the 11th over.

In Division 6, Bridgwater Sports suffered a hefty defeat against Baltonsborough. The visitors hit 203-7 and then routed Sports for 50 with only B Winter (14) and Paul Organ (16) hitting scores in double figures.

Spaxton got lucky in their Division 8S match with Middlezoy. The visitors posted 180-7 thanks to P Gray (40) and 30 apiece for Nathan Peppard and G Purchase despite D Pople's (3-42) best efforts.

In reply, Spaxton fell to 24-7 thanks to Purchase (2-6) and Peppard (5-16) before rain saved the day.

Chilton Polden's match with South Petherton was evenly poised after they hit 161 with N Dobbs (46) top scoring but the visitors were 17-0 in reply when rain forced the players off the pitch.

In the Division 9NW match between Wembdon Academy and Chilton Polden 2nds, things were very evenly poised as Wembdon were 140-6 chasing 197 for victory.

L Alway (56) and C Burrows (41) provided the mainstay to the Chilton Polden innings despite four wickets from Robert Paull (4-41). Rich Weber hit a classy 82 in reply for Wembdon but wickets from Alway (2-37) and N Darlington (3-32) pegged the scores back before rain ruined any hopes of a result.
