Falkland v Thorntons Penicuik Cricket Club 1st XI on Sat 11 Aug 2012 at Mid-Day
Thorntons Penicuik Cricket Club Lost by 26 runs

Match report Penicuik travelled to Falkland in round 11 of the league competition. Falkland won the toss and elected to bat, however Penicuik continued some impressive recent bowling performances to have the hosts 88-6. Opening bowlers Ashforth (1-52) and Crawford (1-33) making the early breakthroughs and then again key contributions from young James Scott (3-27) & Zeesh Khalil (3-38) doing the damage for the visitors. Penicuik couldn't quite kill off the innings however, and a battling top score of 36 from R Hepburn and 26 from B Ditchman at numbers 7 & 8 helped Falkland up to 175 all out.

Penicuik started well with Foulds (26) and Taylor (15) reaching 40 for the first wicket before the former was run out. Unfortunately Penicuik then lost Taylor and the in form Eric Potts also by run out to reduce the visitors to 61-3. Penicuik could not build the meaningful partnership they needed to regain the momentum and after Steel fell for 31 only some late hitting from Zeesh Khalil and Calum Steel bolstered Penicuik to a disappointing 149 all out in 44 overs.

A game the visitors must learn from as they did the hard work but could not transfer that to vicitory, they travel to Fauldhouse next week determined to get back to winning form.
