Friskney CC stormed to an eight-wicket victory at home to Market Deeping Seconds.

Liam Maskell struck an unbeaten 50 for the hosts in their South Lincs and Border League Division One contest on Saturday.

He was ably backed up by Rob Grant’s 41 run.

An unbeaten 34 from Damien Lawson and Mitch Griffiths’ 21 also did the business as Friskney reached their winning target of 197 for the loss of just two wickets within 26 overs.

Friskney won the toss and elected to bowl, putting their batsmen in a good position by restricting Deeping to 196-9.

Wills Barker (3-53) was the hosts’ top wicket taker.

Back up came from Nick Snell (2-33), Joe Gilbert (1-14), Dan Fox (1-14), Maskell (1-16) and Lawson (1-50).

For Deeping, opener John McDougall top-scored with 54, before he was dismissed off Snell’s delivery.
