Overnight rain and a chilly northerly meant it was a two-jumper day!

Harberton batted first and were in trouble at 31-3, including a run out thanks to a Phil Tolley 30-yard throw together with wickets by Dave Alford and David Birch.

A 99-run partnership between Mike McClement and Chris Sleep (60) took the game away from Tipton, and was only ended thanks to a boundary catch by Dave Jessop off Phil Wright.

McDermott went on to bat through the innings for 91 not out as Harberton closed on 179-5. In reply, once Alex Tubbs was out caught for 18, no batsman was able to give support to Phil Tolley. He was eventually bowled for 81, his 100th half century for Tipton, to go with 51 centuries.

Nobody else reached double figures as Tipton’s innings fizzled out on 133-5.

Tipton’s final game of the season is this Sunday (September 30) with a home match against Head and Tails.
