FOR the second week running, Redlynch and Hale Cricket Club enjoyed a clean sweep, with all three men's teams victorious in their respective divisions of the Hampshire League pyramid, writes ANDY CHURCH.

The first XI had a long drive to Hungerford and curiously were asked to bat on what looked like a pretty good track.

Home skipper Chris Thorp looked to have his decision vindicated when Dave Webber was caught in only the second over, but any joy was shortly replaced by concern, as Glen Willoughby joined Ian Tanner and the pair added 220 for the second wicket, taking all the home attack to the cleaners.

Both players passed 50 easily, with Willoughby's coming in just 37 balls. The pair went on and on with boundaries in all parts of the ground until Tanner nicked a ball into the wicket keeper's gloves just five short of a century.

Charlie Everett (33) joined Willoughby who by now, was raining maximums over the fence.

He reached his 100 soon after before being castled by Lloyd Ponsford for 113.

Kev Hopkins added a quickfire 17 not out as the innings closed on a monumental 288-4.

Poor Hungerford. With such a target in front of them, they had to take chances, but Hopkins (2-19) was in no mood to give any quarter as Lee Franklin (6) and Ian Woolf (2) were quickly sent back.

Karl McDonald (23) tried to dig in, but had his bails trimmed by Ben Brown (2-42) who also trapped Kevin Powell in front for 6.

At 41-4, enter the leg spin of Will Hewlett, who proceeded to remove the middle order, all bowled, with 3-20 from a 9 over spell.

Russ Church (1-10) and Webber (0-1) tidied it all up, so with Andy Bell unable to bat due to a broken finger, the hosts closed 166 runs adrift at 122 all out.

With the league tightening up as more games are played, the Woodfall Cross outfit find themselves up to third place with this maximum points win.

Meanwhile, the undefeated second team stormed to a home victory inside of two hours as Knights Valley were blasted out for just 54.

Young bowlers Jack Sobucinski (3-8) and George Hayes (3-5) went through the card. Dom Sell (2-35) was expensive in the scheme of things.

After a quick turnaround, Tom Bayford (38 not out) and Ian Stevens (15 not out) knocked off the runs in just 12.1 overs to make it seven wins of of out of 7.

The third XI made it a full house as they posted 171-6 at Laverstock and Ford II with Andy Church (62) the mainstay.

In reply, R&H bowlers were soon on top with Mick Wright (3-26) paving the way for Ian Dixon to scoop a five-fer (5-2) as the hosts crumbled to 80 all out.
