Bohannon and Griffiths rescue Lancashire II
Thursday 14th May 2015
Josh Bohannon (pictured left) might have only scored 8, 4 and 19 in his three knocks since joining Southport and Birkdale from Farnworth Social Circle during the winter but he let loose playing for Lancashire II against a North Staffordshire and South Cheshire League XI at Porthill Park today.
Batting at number 5 and with Lancashire II on 51-5, he was joined by Ashley Gowers. The two added 85 in 23.1 overs before Gowers was caught and bowled for 39.
Bohannon found an ally in Ormskirk's Gavin Griffiths and the pair added 136 in 12.2 overs before the innings closed at 272-6.
The 18 year old S&B batsman finished with 113* from 116 balls with 7x4s and 4x6s whilst Griffiths was 59* from 33 balls with 4x4s and 4x6s.
The NS&SCL suffered a mid order collapse but recovered to finish eight runs of their target.
