Hawick & Wilton Pub 6’s

 

The Office Bar defeated Big Muscle by 18 runs in the final of the Hawick & Wilton Pub 6’s on a scorching Sunday at Buccleuch Park.

 

Six teams battled it out playing each other once, then the top two sides met in the final.

 

The Office and Big Muscle each won 4 of their 5 matches, whilst the Presidents came third after they won 3 and lost 2 of their games where youngster Justin Tait impressed with the bat.

 

Hawick Linden A picked up two victories with some big hitting from Kieran Murphy, whilst Stampers Bar also claimed two triumphs with Lez Jarvis catching the eye of the crowd with his antics and Rikki Kiore smashed six sixes in an over.

 

Hawick Linden B picked up the one win, but it came in the Linden derby as they beat their rugby team mates thanks to some composed batting from Barry Sutherland.

 

In the final, The Office batted first and an unbeaten stand of 99 from 5 overs between Tony Craggs and Ryan Johnston set Big Muscle 100 for victory. Some huge sixes from the impressive Rhys Tait, Morgan Tait and Barrie Keown wasn’t enough as Big Muscle finished on 81 for 1. Still a huge total but 18 runs short of their target.
