SCF hit the top

But individual performance of the day came from St Ouen all-rounder Dave Morfee who claimed a hat-trick to help lift his side into second place.

Caesareans were given a solid platform to their innings with an opening stand of 83 from Barry Parson (55) and Dave Buxton (48) but nobody else really got going as they set a respectable total of 206 for 9 from their 45 overs.

Against another side this could have been a challenging total, but not Sporting Club’s all-star batting line up.

Even a rare failure from Steve Carlyon only resulted in his brother Tony arriving at the crease and the younger Carlyon and Matt Hague set about compiling a second-wicket stand of 132 before Hague was out for 79.

Tony Carlyon (78 not out) and Meeku Patidar then steered Sporting Club to victory in 41.3 overs.

The St Ouen celebration for a hat-trick is for one player to rugby tackle the bowler then let the rest of the team pile in on top – as Morfee discovered.

His hat-trick came in the middle order, with the first batsman caught and the second and third bowled.

‘I was very pleased with that,’ he said.

‘It was fantastic to get it, but I hadn’t quite expected the reaction I got!’ Morfee said this is his second hat-trick, though his first was a few years ago, as a teenager.

‘St Ouen are doing well this season, we started well and are getting better.’ The St Ouen total of 241 was based around a fine 90 from Dave Parry, who shared an opening stand of 70 with Morfee.

Ensured The result saw St Ouen climb into second above Romerils, albeit from a game more played.

In the Minor Cup first round match played yesterday Romerils 2nds defeated Springfield 2nds by three wickets.

Greg Sykes (33), Charles Woodrow (32) and Under-14s player Scott Simpson (37 not out) contributed to the Springfield total of 192 for 7.

Romerils reply began slowly but opener Karl Le Fèvre held the innings together with a fine 98 and partnerships with Luca Caviglione (20), Nick Walmsley (15) and Myles Landick (20) ensured a three-wicket victory.

In the Division I match St Ouen Res beat SCF Res by 30 runs.

After posting a relatively low total of 104 all out, Pat Dean bowled St Ouen Res to victory with 5 for 14 from his eight overs.
