LIONS ROAR AS THEY THRASH SUNDERLAND

By Billy Stephenson

Leeds Trinity Lions made it two wins from two after a very convincing win over Sunderland.

Captain Dominic Farr won the toss and decided that Trinity would bowl first.

Wickets fell thick and fast for Trinity as Sunderland were 1-1 with a first wicket of the season for Elliott Jennings. But that was not his only wicket of the day as he managed figures of 4-10 from his seven overs. Two for Craig Edwards, two for James Massheder and one for Cameron Patel saw Lions skittle Sunderland for 48 all out.

The Lions went into bat just needing 49 to win the game and they managed to do that easily in just eight overs.

Opening batsmen Aidan Malley and Animesh Chatterjee saw the Lions get the run total without a wicket falling.

Speaking to Trinity opening batter Malley, he said: “They were no match for us, we rattled through them, we were a different league in terms of standard.”

The Lions will have another away game next week as they travel to East Yorkshire to face Hull.
