JOE Wormington took five wickets as Poole Town recorded a dramatic tied game at Dorset Premier League rivals Sherborne.

Having lost the toss and been asked to bowl first at the Terrace, Wormington (5-47) ripped out three of the hosts’ top five to help bowl out Sherborne for 170 from their 50 overs.

Having slipped to 106 for seven in reply, Poole looked like falling short of their victory target.

But a late-order contribution of 48 from Dave Miller helped rescue the visitors. He was left unbeaten alongside James Kirk (3no).

Poole earned 13 league points from the tie, with Sherborne gaining 12.

Elsewhere, half-centuries for James Park (50) and Pete Russell (57no) helped Broadstone to a 45-run home win over Dorchester.

Having been asked to bat first at Delph Woods, the hosts posted 183 for eight from their allotted 50 overs after recovering from 58 for four.

Ashley Collison did the most damage with the ball for Broadstone in reply, returning four for 37.

Matt Spraggs also picked up three for 17 as Dorchester were skittled out for 138.

Defending champions Wimborne suffered their second defeat of the new campaign after falling to a two-wicket home loss to Shroton at the Leaze.

Matt Pike was the standout Shroton bowler with five for 40. Skipper Mark House (29) and Harrison Bowles (29) top scored for the hosts as they reached 194 all out.

Despite wickets for Ed Bartlett (2-18), Lewis Freak (2-19), Harry Beardsley (1-32), Harry Prince (1-36) and Bowles (1-49), Shroton reached their victory target with two wickets in hand.
