TWO teenagers guided Corbridge II to an unlikely last ball victory at Ryton in a high scoring thriller in Division Seven.

Ciara Boaden and Milo Robinson tore into the home side's attack and fired 51 runs from the remaining three overs to secure a three wicket victory for their team.

Hosts Ryton opted to bat first and soon had Corbridge on the back foot scoring 80 off the first eight overs. At the end of their 30 overs, Ryton had an impressive 234-4 with Mark Terry, Robinson, Chris Todd and Stewart Fairhurst taking the wickets.

Corbridge openers Dave Smurthwaite (51) and Simon Walker (31) pushed the score along quickly, before both fell in quick succession. When Shaun Fenwick, partnering teenager Ciara Boaden, was run out for 26, victory seemed out of reach as fellow teen Robinson came into the attack.

Boaden (58no) passed her half century, becoming the team's first female player to do so, by picking off loose deliveries, while Robinson (48no) launched a savage attack on the bowlers as he fired the winning boundary from the final ball of the afternoon.

Stocksfield III endured a day to forget as they posted just 79 runs in their nine wicket defeat to Greenside. Only Raji Kingman (19), Peter Walker (14) and Ayden Knott (12) made double figures, with Alice Sargent taking the only wicket in reply from her five deliveries.

Riding Mill lost by five wickets at home to Annfield Plain II, a 62 from opener Kiel Zurawlew in vain as Mill ended on 150. Zurawlew and Kevin Frazer took two wickets each in reply.

Allendale moved to the top of Division Six after a three wicket victory over Stocksfield II, with thanks to knocks from Tom Scott (46), Dan Mills (40) and Mohammed Zeeshan Tahir (33no). Stocksfield posted a competitive total of 205 with Matthew Page (34), Ben Wraith (37) and Tom White (40) impressing.

With Craig Barber (67) leading the way, with additions from Nathan Byerley (42), David Holt (41) and Will Marrow (27), Tynedale II defeated Whickham II by 77 runs as they posted 235. Mark Clark claimed three wickets.
