Match report Hutton 171-9 lost to Epping 175-6 by 4 wickets

EPPING stormed to a stunning victory against division 2 league leaders and title favourites Hutton.
The architects of their 2nd win on the bounce were opening bowlers Jon Everett and Simon Moore.
The pair, who had destroyed the Leigh-on-Sea batting in the previous week, were on top form again and did the same to the cream of Hutton's line-up.
Everett was in steamingly good form and took the prize wicket of opener Simon Thurston, who has been scoring runs for fun, for a duck.
Everett also had Sean Van der Merne brilliantly caught at slip by Graham Hancock while Moore got in on the act removing the dangerous David Hammond for just 14.
The carnage continued as Everett trapped Craig Miller LBW for 2 and easily snapped up youngster Nick Vanner for 4.
The pair continued to make inroads and had the visitors reeling on 86 for 7.
The Hutton recovery was mounted by youngster James Buttleman who made 19 before he was expertly trapped LBW for 19 after being bamboozled by a slower ball.
With Moore finishing his spell on 2 for 37 off 14 overs and Everett bowing out after a marvellous 20 overs in which he claimed 5 for 45, the Hutton batsmen began to bring their side's score some respectability.
Hutton skipper Rob Hayne made 17 before being snapped up at slip by Dave Sibley, then James Crapnell and Craig McNally went on the offensive.
Crapnell reached 50 before he was snapped up in the deep by Dan Sibley off the bowling of Simon Oiver and McNally smited 38 before he was stumped off the last ball.
But the pair had hauled their side back from the dead and to a score of 171-9 off 52 overs.
Epping started positively and never stopped, smashing their way to a brilliant victory off just 38 overs.
Opener Dan Sly led the way with a classy 25 before a mini clatter of wickets put the game in the balance with Epping on 44 for 3.
But a good partnership of 44 between Simon Moore and Graham Hancock put Epping in the ascendancy.
Hancock went for 21 withn the score on 86 and Dan Sibley then joined Moore in a 45-run partnership.
Moore made his way to a cultured 54 before being bowled by spinner Graham Spooner.
Sibley continued the assault however with good support from Epping skipper Geoff Maynard (17) and finished the game with some mighty blows including a monster six which almost ended up in Epping High Rd.
Sibley made 43 not out as Epping cantered home with 15 overs to spare.
Epping captain Geoff Maynard said: "I am absolutely delighted with this performance. We deservedly beat a very good team who were cruising at the top of the table and did it the hard way after losing the toss.
"The bowling of Everett and Moore was different quality once again and our batting was aggressive and dominant."
