BOTH Portland Red Triangle A and Weymouth got their Clayesmore DCA Sunday Indoor League campaigns off to perfect starts with double wins.

Triangle were first involved in a low-scoring affair against Blandford after collapsing for 79 all out.

Ollie Whisker (43) top-scored for the islanders and his knock proved to be crucial as tight bowling from Matt Randell (2-14) from his three overs helped restrict Blandford to 74-3 from their 12 overs.

Portland then beat Cheselbourne by two wickets, first bowling their opponents out for 114.

Randell (19) hit three sixes in his rapid innings, before the measured Whisker retired on 25 and later made an unbeaten 31.

Simon Proffitt also chipped in with 22 as Triangle reached their target in the 10th over.

Meanwhile, Weymouth also experienced a nailbiting game against Blandford, prevailing by one wicket in the final over.

Blandford’s Kevin Abbott bludgeoned 32 not out to help set an imposing target of 145 from 12 overs, with skipper Harry Mitchell taking 2-30.

Weymouth’s reply was rocked when sharp work from Blandford ran out Lloyd Beals (1) on the opening ball.

But Mitchell (67no) and Neil Walton (32) safely guided the Seasiders home, finishing off good support work from Sahil Dalvi (24).

Weymouth were more convincing in their second win, beating Bere Regis by five wickets.

Bere made a good start, Andy Kent working the field well to retire on 25.

Tight bowling from Beals (0-17) and Walton dried up the runs as Bere struggled thereafter.

Walton (3-16) then returned with a hat-trick to dismiss a youthful Bere side for 107.

Mitchell was again in fine form with the bat, retiring on 25 before Beals hit a quickfire 22 in the Seasiders’ reply.

Jack Sapsworth (21), promoted to open, finished the task alongside Walton (9no) as Weymouth made it two wins from two in the ninth over.

Tomorrow, Triangle A have a double header against Martinstown and Bere Regis, while Weymouth face Triangle B and Hazlebury Bryan a week later.

Other results: Portland RT B 125-3 lost to Stalbridge 126-5 by one wicket; Portland RT B 170-1 beat Kilmington and Stourton 139-3 by 31 runs.
