JAKE Halsey’s superb five-wicket haul helped Hanborough lift the Telegraph Cup with a 48-run victory over Division 3 champions Eynsham at Faringdon.

Batting first in the final, Hanborough were indebted to an excellent 50 from Joe Burgess as they were bowled out for 135.

Dave Harris was the pick of the Eynsham attack with 4-16, while Tom Prentice returned figures of 3-21.

Despite the low total, Hanborough wrapped up the trophy in style as they ran through the Eynsham card.

Only Ben Smitten (37) made double figures as man-of-the-match Halsey returned magnificent figures of 5-34 in his 12 overs.

Jonathan Ayris chipped in with 3-27 as Eynsham were shot out for just 87.

l THE OCA League Division 1 title race will go down to the final weekend after Saturday’s programme was decimated by heavy rain.

Only two league games reached conclusions, with leaders Minster Lovell and second-placed Faringdon both seeing their matches washed out while in strong positions.

At Stonesfield, Minster had reached 138-3 after just 21 overs before the heavens opened.

Elliot Graham (49) and Harry Ebsworth (30) had put Minster into a strong position, but rain had the final say.

It was the same at Faringdon, who had reduced visitors Yarnton & Cowley to 108-6 before the weather intervened.

On Sunday, Yarnton & Cowley defeated hosts Stonesfield by 21 runs.

Mohammed Zia Hameed top-scored with 53 as Yarnton posted 211-9.

Tim Wyatt (74) led the hosts’ reply, but Hameed (4-28) and Muhammad Adil (3-44) combined to dismiss them for 190.

In Division 2, East & West Hendred are virtually assured of the title, as they will need just a handful of points from this weekend’s final match at Wantage.

All five games in the division were washed out, and with that being Wolvercote’s last match, it means Hendred will be crowned champions if they pick up four points at Wantage.

Division 3 was a complete washout, and with the title already wrapped up by Eynsham, Westcott will be runners-up if they beat the champions on Saturday.

In Division 4, Swinbrook were one of only two sides to complete a match as they beat visitors Hailey by four wickets.

In a game reduced to 25 overs per side, Hailey were bowled out for 111 as Stuart Bullen took a brilliant 6-34 and Joel King hit 49.

Rob Grant then scored 48 not out to lead Swinbrook to 112-6.

There was another result in Division 5, where Charlbury 2nd won by 43 runs at Chipping Norton 2nd.

Rob Collard’s 41 led Charlbury to 148-5 in their 25 overs.

Andrew Tompkins then hit 46 not out for Chippy, but Paul Jenkins (3-17) helped to restrict the hosts to 105-5.

Bampton were confirmed as champions after their match at home to West Witney and Brill’s clash against visitors Great Horwood 2nd were both abandoned.

Combe virtually wrapped up the Division 7 title, courtesy of a weekend of 60 points.

Kilkenny 2nd conceded to them on Saturday, and on Sunday, they racked up a 245-run win at Wootton & Boars Hill 2nd.

Matthew Purssell smashed 121, Mark Westerby 63 and Chris Moore 55 not out as Combe amassed a huge 304-6.

Mike Eeley claimed 7-23 and Dave Gardner 3-31 as third-placed Wootton were shot out for 59.
