Although Danny Smith took some tap, he finished with 6-63 from 11.1 overs.

At 73-6, Tew were struggling to reach three figures until No 8 Sam Smith (37) gave them something to defend.

Sandford were also 0-1 after one ball when Lawrence Brock (3-33) removed Thomas Goffe, but Grant Phillips-Tebb (33) stabilised their reply and they just managed to scrape together 117-8.
