AN unbroken second-wicket stand of 103 between James Miller and Mark House saw Dorset Premier League leaders Wimborne & Colehill ease to a nine-wicket victory over Bere Regis at The Leaze.

Victory kept the Minstermen ahead of second-placed Poole Town who trimmed their advantage to 16 points after trouncing Sherborne by 97 runs at Poole Park.

Harrison Bowles (3-9) ripped through the Bere Regis top order, dismissing Richard Payne, Matt King and Robert Murphy to leave them reeling on 24 for three.

A fourth-wicket partnership of 48 between Richard Cole (34) and Dean Rogerson (30) briefly stemmed the tide before Frank Turrell (2-11) and Tom Caines (2-21) helped restrict the visitors to 102 for eight from 33 overs.

And although Colin Randall fell cheaply, Miller (76) and House (35) remained undefeated at the close as Wimborne chased down an adjusted target at 126 for one.
