THETFORD Sunday entertained Quebec in the second round of the Challenge Cup.

On a good wicket Quebec won the toss and decided to bat.

Thetford's opening bowlers Lewis Greyson and Robbie Chamberlain bowled tidily but were unable to make the breakthrough. Nathan Coleman took the wicket of Hubbard, caught by Allison for 25.

Carmen was then run out for six and then Whalen was caught in the covers by Liam Conroy.

When Chaplin fell for just three caught by Allison off the bowling of Liam Conroy, Quebec were in trouble at 47-4. Walsh and Dyker also fell in quick succession, both to the bowling of Coleman, who claimed his five-wicket haul when he bowled Rouse, beating him for sheer pace.

Atkinson and Amie resisted for a few overs until Amie was bowled by Mark Allison, giving him his first wicket for Thetford, and when Atkinson was caught and bowled by Conroy, Quebec were bowled out for 80.

In reply, with a lowly target this should have been an easy task, but they soon found themselves in a spot of bother at 14-2 with Harris (4) and Hudson (6) both falling to Hubbard.

But Liam Conroy joined Jack Lingard and they eased to victory, both playing some fine strokes to finish 30 not out and 26 not out respectively.
