Easton defeat Melton St Audrys, while Kesgrave overcome Caribbeans
Leaders Easton made it eight wins out of eight in Section A of the MSC Suffolk Alliance, following a 70-run victory over struggling Melton St Audrys.
Jolyon Kimmerling, fresh from a century last week, followed it up with another ton as Easton reached 218 for five off their 40 overs. Kimmerling made 112.
It was always going to be a mountain to climb for Melton, although Jack Lord impressed with 61 before the visitors were dismissed for 148.
Kesgrave, beaten just once this season, defeated Caribbeans by 53 runs. Opener Dominic Gallant was the mainstay of the innings with a vital 63, as his team-mates fell cheaply until some late resistance from the late order batsmen.
There were four wickets apiece for J Whyte and Paul Denness. The latter then top-scored with 34 at the top of the innings for Caribbeans, although they fell well short of their target.
