Henfield’s search for a first league win of the season goes on as they just fell short of their chase in drawing at Bognor on Saturday.
Bognor’s pro Sam Taylor’s knock of 92 provided the baulk of their 205-9.
In reply Scott Pedersen hit a patient 48 before Craig Scott’s rapid 38 put Henfield in with a good chance of victory, but in the end they fell just short, ending on 190-7.
Despite failing to win any of their opening seven games skipper Brett Moore feels a change in fortunes isn’t too far off. He said: “It’s not like we’ve been thrashed by anyone, we’ve either just not had that bit of luck, or just been shy of chasing totals in a couple of games. We were looking good for a win against bottom side Arundel before it was washed out. One win will drastically improve our position, it’s a case of when not if it will come so we have to be patient.”
Henfield’s overseas all-rounder Brighton Mugochi took 4-63 as the visitors took wickets around the excellent Taylor. And a ninth wicket stand of 40 also swelled their total over 200. In reply Mugochi also contributed 34 but the four extra batting overs Bognor had proved decisive.
Henfield have a 30 point cushion over basement boys Arundel.
