There was less excitement this week in the CCB Indoor Sixes League, with matches either going the way of the favoured side or one team having a pretty bad day.
St Austell comfortably overcame Falmouth in what might have been the biggest clash of the day, Mike Bone making 39 not out and taking 2 wickets in the 42-run win.
Adrian Noott’s 33 was the only highlight for Falmouth.
Perranporth continued their promising start by defeating a lacklustre Wadebridge six, who could muster just 64 all out, with Tyler Murrell taking three wickets. Newquay, after conceding their first match, fielded a team of very decent strength this time and, in a closely fought encounter, just overcame Ladock (R Bray 28, C Murphy 27*) by two wickets, with three balls to spare.
Truro’s team is attacking the competition with rather ominous intent this season and they cruised to a 64-run win over St Minver, who were dismissed for 46, Kyle Van Rooyen taking 3 for 9 and scoring an unbeaten 26 with the bat.
Jordan Thomas also made 26 in Beacon’s second disappointing effort, this time shot out for 58 by Stithians, who were in top form in the field, Kieren Webber taking two for four.
They then slowly compiled the winning runs, largely made up of singles and wides, getting home with an over to spare.
