Rowington entertained bottom of the table Broadway on a very humid Saturday and with skipper Sam Turrell winning the toss Broadway were asked to bat. 
Tight bowling by Steve Jay saw Broadway openers Holmes and Brown only scoring from Sam Lange's overs but Lange's patience paid off as he enticed Brown to edge one to Scott Rogers diving to his right at gully and Broadway are 9 - 1. 
Maiden comes in and Jay continues to do just that but Maiden also takes a liking to Lange and he moves the score up past the fifty when Andy Shaw replaces Lange and his first over sees him change the game as Maiden is bowled for 41, Timperly only lasts two balls for a duck and danger-man Powell top edges his first ball back to Shaw for a golden duck and now Broadway are suddenly 60 - 4. 
Jay continues at one end and with Shaw the run rate is right back down to under 3 an over, Shaw then bowls Marston (0) 64 - 5, but Holmes is still there, and Malin comes in, it doesn't take Shaw long to entice Malin to have a go and he top edges to Adam Williams and he's gone for 3, Shaw has 5 wickets and its 74 - 6.  
Holmes is still there and this time is joined by Hopkins and together they go past the 100 and up to 104 when Williams, who has replaced Sam Turrell , bowls Hopkins for a brisk 39, then that man Shaw gets Corenza to try and hit it out of the ground and he goes, caught by Sam Turrell for a duck, now Broadway are 123 - 8.
Holmes then edges to keeper Ollie Evans off  Williams for a very patient 24, So with 9 down Broadway are on 127. 
A last wicket partnership sees Mendoza and Ross push the score up to 142 when Sam Turrell returns and bowls a bit of spin to which Ross's eyes light up, unfortunately not enough as he misses a straight one and Broadway are all out for 142 off 37 overs.
Jay      10    6    13    1
Lange    8    0    49    1
Shaw   10    1    38    6
Turrell    5    1    15    1
Williams 5    1    23    2
So, after a sweet laden tea, openers Alex Smith and Scott Rogers made their way to the crease, and Rogers was in no mood to hang around storming the R's to 55 before Rogers gets caught off Ross's long hop for 28.
In comes Adam Williams and he soon carries on where Rogers left off as anchorman Smith played his usual role, they took Rowington past the ton on 20 overs and 5 overs later had reached the target with Smith 41 not out and Williams 46 not out. 
A good performance saw the R's get another good points haul and they now look secure for another season in division 1. 
Its over to Ashton under Hill next week and after throwing the game away against them last meeting Rowington will be looking to avenge!
