Match report for Camberley 2nd XI v East Molesey, 30/7/2011.

West gets five again, but again it isn't enough.
Phil West's fifth haul of five wickets or more this season was the highlight but Camberley couldn't bowl out the opposition for the second week in a row.
West took 5-73 from 20 overs against a tough East Molesey side who stayed second in the table.
George Crowdy was the stand-out performer with the bat, making 65 from 88 balls, as the home side amassed 220 all out from their 55 overs.
Stuart Gilchriest, James Parrott and Mac Sayed all got in but got out as no other batsman provided a substantial score.
Having lost the toss, Camberley were sent in to bat on a hot summer's day.
Jon Cooles departed for an early duck before a partnership of 98 between Crowdy and Gilchriest put the hosts back on track.
Both then fell in the space of 11 runs before Sayed and Parrott put on 47 for the fourth wicket.
But from 159-3, the hosts lost five wickets for 37 runs as the lower middle order failed to fire.
A late barrage from West helped the total past 200 as Camberley posted a competitive score.
In reply, both visitor openers got a start before the Phil West James Parrott combination removed both, the latter taking both catches at mid on.
A partnership of 99 then appeared to take the game away from Camberley, but Chris Pike then struck with possibly the worst ball of an otherwise strong bowling performance to remove Adam Potter for 58.
Chris Haynes was well caught by Gilchriest at long on to become West's third victim, before Pike bowled Neil Campbell as the home side threatened a comeback.
That cause was further helped by a Parrott run out, before West claimed two further wickets, completing his five-for and leaving Camberley just two short of victory.
Disappointingly from a hosts' perspective, the wickets came too late, and the East Molesey tail-enders comfortably played out the remaining over or so to finish the game in a draw.
Camberley battled hard for what was ultimately only one point, but they fought well to restrict the visitors from gaining the extra nine points for a win.
Another tough test follows next week as they travel to table-toppers Trinity Mid-Whitgiftian.
