The new season started with a win for Porthleven at home. Pitched against their title rivals from last year, Port took the field with confidence that soon showed in their miserly bowling. Oz Young and Matt Stokeld pegged the visiting batsmen in their crease and after 12 overs there were only 21 runs on the board. JJ Walker and Jeff Carvelly kept the pressure on and at the half way stage only 74 runs had been amassed, but there had not been a break through yet. Catches were being dropped and the batsmen were thinking of buying lottery tickets to top off their luck!! In the 28th over, skipper Darren Parish made the breakthrough after an amazing opening over! This then opened the door for the Port bowlers to make inroads in to the wickets, and they finally wrapped up the innings in the 48th over. Matt Stokeld had the most impressive figures bagging 4 wickets for only 19 runs. Portís innings opened positively with the openers carrying on from where they left off last season. Dean Bray got amongst the bowling early and raced to 41 quickly before holing out to deep square leg. Andy Bonnett nearly carried his bat through the innings, getting caught out for 60 with only 4 runs needed for victory. This was a good opening result for Port showing that they still have that winning feeling in the veins from last year.
