Horsham legspinner Michael Munday took six wickets to help his side bounce back from last week’s defeat to thrash local rivals Roffey with a nine-wicket victory.
Munday dominated the visitors’ bowling by taking a superb return of 6-32 in 15 overs which included five maidens.
The former Somerset professional combined well with fellow spinner Will Beer (1-16) to dismiss Roffey for 145.
Roffey had made a promising start with a 32-run opening stand between Craig Williams and Aaron Jeal. Williams made way for his skipper Josh Fleming who combined with Williams for a 48-run second wicket stand which put them at 80-2.
However Munday devastated the middle order and wickets tumbled regularly until they were all out.
Horsham looked in far more determined form in their reply than one week before when they lost against Three Bridges and it was Beer who showed his best form with an excellent unbeaten 81 in 55 balls.
After playing themselves in, Beer and Ben Shoare (57 not out) played some exhilerating cricket. Beer hit five sixes including three in one over off George Fleming and nine fours while Shoare struck 11 boundaries.
Beer raced from 50 to 75 in only five balls and had Roffey players searching for balls without luck in the back gardens of the over-looking houses.
Finally Shoare hit the winning runs (two) off Dan Smith to win the match in only 21.4 overs and with nine wickets intact.
