Grades Results for w/e 1st-2nd July 2017 - Three Way Race for the Top Grade

The contest in Grade 1 developed into a three way race after leaders Bon Accord, AGSFPs and the season's shock troops Academy all won their games in some style.
The most impressive performance of the day was at Kellands Park where Inverurie Don Valley looked to have posted a winning score of 197 for three only to be beaten by Academy who passed the home total with two wickets in hand, thanks to a patient, controlled 54 from Phani Prattipati. For the home side Chris Watson scarcely deserved to be on the losing side after hitting a sparkling 75. George Hadden was no less efficient with a painstaking unbeaten 62, though it was not enough to get the better of the tenacious Sheddocksley side.
Bon Accord were in equally good form at home to Kemnay-Kintore, racking up 270 for four before bowling out a weakened Bogbeth Park side for 89. The main men for the champions were Saif Ahmed (126), Fazal Awan (94) and destroyer in Chief Jaimeek Bhalani who took five for 15 as the visitors collapsed in the face of pressure from the unrelenting Bon Accord side.
Second placed AGSFPs were well up to the poor challenge of Cults who were bowled out for 71, chasing a total of 189, five wickets falling to Sam Knudson for a mere 26 runs. The principal scorer for the Rubislaw side was opener Alex Keith with a quick fire 49.
At Groats Road Knight Riders 193 all out proved to be too much for ACE Mannofield who succumbed to the home attack for 155. Sivaganesan Palaniappan hit a splendid 83 for the home side, and Mannofield’s own run machine was Indika Yahathugoda who has scored two centuries to date this season, topped scored for his team with 52.
In Grade 2 Stoneywood-Dyce's stranglehold on the title was loosened by second placed Grampian who bowled the visitors out for 145 before chasing the total down for the loss of six wickets. Banchory came tantalisingly near to registering its first win of the season, having been bowled out for 80 of which Graeme Nixon scored a stubborn 25, they took eight 2nd Knight Riders wickets before its own total was surpassed.
In Grade 3 Aberdeen Super Kings made inroads into Stonehaven Thistle's lead, taking advantage of the leaders not being in action, beating 2nd AGSFPs by 47 runs.
In the only game played in Grade 4 2nd Methlick beat Turriff by eight wickets at the Haughs. Rob Fryer scored an entertaining 58 for the winners.
