Dorset duo come up trumps
Pacific v Stoke Newington at Millfields Park  Sat 08 Sep 2018 at 1pm
Won by 4 wickets
North East London Cricket League
 

Pacific CC finished their debut season in the North East London League in style as they blew away a youthful Stoke Newington XI. Having won the toss and elected to bat, Stokey were unable to contain Pacific's opening seam duo of Custard and Stockton, as the former took three wickets for only four runs off three overs. With the scoreboard reading 16/5 after only six overs, Pacific then turned to their part time bowlers to provide the batting side with 46 extras comprising more runs than Stoke Newington's top-scoring pair combined and dragging the home team to a respectable 129 all out. After tea, Stoke Newington's opening pair bowled tightly, restricting opening batsman Dempsey to a hard-fought 18 from 31 deliveries. Seamer Makim impressed as he snared the key wickets of Digby (6) and Chasseaud (11) for cheap, although any hope of a famous victory was soon extinguished by Pacific number four batsman Blake, who smashed an effortless 45 at a strike rate of over 200 to take the game away from the hosts. Pacific's strong middle order proceeded to close out the match and their NELL season in leisurely fashion. The Ocean's XI now find themselves in eighth position, tied on points with Clapton & Oval, who have a final game in hand. Stoke Newington remain rooted to the foot of the table.
