Weston 2nd XI suffered their first home defeat of the season at the hands of a strong Minehead team. The visitors won the toss and bowled first, and that decision looked a good one as they took early wickets. The Weston top order struggled, and it looked like an early finish when the 6th wicket fell with the score under a hundred. but excellent batting from Alex Leeks (65), well supported by Jodie Filer (12), got the home team up to 175-9 from their overs.

Mineheads batting looked confident from the start, and a young Weston bowling attack gave them few problems with some wayward bowling in some difficult windy conditions. The spinners lowered the run rate, but Minehead eventually cruised home by 5 wickets with 15 overs to spare.
A tough day for a young 2nd team, with U19’s Alex and Jodie at least showing fight with the bat in the first innings. MOM goes to Alex Leeks.
