Match report for Camberley Sunday 1st XI v Wilkinson's Way, 1/5/2011.

Dom dominates.
Dom Peter became the third teenager in as many weeks to score a century as he put Wilkinson's Way to the sword on Sunday.
The 16-year-old, who hit 102 not out off 99 balls, followed George Crowdy and Lloyd Morris into three figures for the club this season.
Not to be outdone, Sunday veteran Mark Dawes also hit 120 as Camberley thrashed the visitors from Greenford, West London.

Dawes and Peter put on a mammoth 201 for the first wicket, as Camberley totalled 288-3 from their 40 overs, before bowling the Way out for 157.
In a match that never threatened to be close, captain Sam Holmes managed to use nine bowlers in an attempt to keep everyone on their toes, with Peter the only fielder not to bowl.
Wickets were spread all over the team, with Jordan Gibbs, Jon Cooles and Holmes picking up two each, while there were one apiece for Chris Pike, Dan Wakeling, Dan Burns and even Dawes, who returned figures of 3-1-4-1.
With the visitors having turned up late, Holmes enforced the toss, meaning that Camberley batted first, and Dawes and Peter quickly got into their stride as the weak Way bowling attack suffered.
Dawes was typically aggressive, hitting 12 fours and two sixes in his innings, while Peter was more watchful, preferring to take singles and twos that were readily available.
After Dawes' sparkling innings came to an end in the 29th over, Burns played a quickfire knock of 23 off 13, James Reeves added four and Holmes finished unbeaten on 16, but the highlight of the innings came in the 39th over when Peter punched an Everton delivery through extra cover to bring up his hundred.

In reply, Camberley got off the best possible start when youngster Wakeling had Khan caught behind in the first over. Pike also got an early wicket, uprooting Jones' off stump, before Cooles and Burns combined to tie down the Way's middle order. Cooles showed an extra yard of pace in his spell of 5-1-16-2, while Burns was typically unplayable, returning figures of 5-2-7-1.
With the game effectively over, the fun could begin, as a new spin partnership of Reeves and Reeves took centre stage. Sadly, James' slow left arm and Scott's off-spin couldn't produce the wicket that both would have toasted for years. But where they failed, Dawes succeeded, adding the wicket of Williams to his impressively economical figures.
Leg-spinner Gibbs added a couple of late wickets to his tally this season, but it was Holmes who rounded off the match, taking the last two wickets just four balls into his spell.
The game didn't offer much as a contest, but Camberley won't complain about getting two further players into triple figures, whilst continuing the winning mentality as the important games arrive.
