Ventnor II (220-4) beat OTs & Romsey II (218 all out) by six wickets
After winning the toss and choosing to bowl first, the hosts struck early and left Romsey 35-3 after Paul Longland, Shane Vidler and Dan Collins fell cheaply to the bowling of Hugh Calloway and S Reid.
The visitors soon hit back through an impressive half century from Stu Shapland and a more than useful knock of 31 from Dan Mogg.
But once Shapland had been caught out for 53, it was the hosts who took the ascendency once more, with Reid (4-46) looking particularly dangerous.
Wickets continued to tumble for Romsey but number 8 batsman Lewis Allen stopped the Ventnor bowlers in their tracks with a half century of his own. He fired five boundaries on his way to hitting 57 to guide the visitors to 218 all out.
In response, the hosts got off to a solid start, with opening batsmen John Buckman and Tom Stafford sharing a first wicket stand of 64 before the latter was caught out off Shapland’s bowling.
Two quick run outs and a wicket for Allen then reduced the home side to 93-4 as Romsey looked for victory.
However, the pressure soon subsided with some superb batting from Calloway (70*) and Alex Horton (51*) seeing Ventnor cruise to victory with six wickets to spare.
