SOHAM'S assault on Division 3A of the Cambs CCA Junior League continued with merciless pace at the weekend as they beat Over II by a sizeable 188 runs.

Opting to bat first, Soham made hay in the early afternoon sunshine and a partnership of 141 from Nick Mingay and Josh Pope ensured Soham set their opposition the almost impossible task of chasing 273 for victory.

As he so often has been this season, Mingay was the pick of Soham's batting with a virtuoso knock of 154. Though not quite the stunning knock of his long time partner at the crease, Pope's 57 was still fine reward for an exceptional innings work.

Needing well in excess of six an over for victory, Over were in an understandable hurry to reduce their weighty deficit. They were made to suffer though, as Soham's bowlers made full use of their cushion to turn the screw on the top-order.

David Lunn was once again the pick of the bowling attack as he collected joint jug-responsibilities with Mingay by virtue of his five wicket haul. Keith Metcalfe was also richly rewarded from his miserly 10 over spell with exemplary figures 3-16.
