Adamson stars in Tucabia win
BY ADRIAN MILLER
EAST Royal Tavern fell well short of victory after a fine bowling display by GI Tucabia-Copmanhurst's Chris Adamson at McKittrick Park on Saturday.
Adamson took 4-74 as East limped to 9-176 at the end of play, a far cry from Tucabia's 330-run first innings total.
East was never in the hunt after a middle order collapse in which it lost 3-0.
The competition cellar dwellers started solidly enough, with openers David Cox and Bob McKenzie putting on 40 for the first wicket before Cox fell for 20. McKenzie followed shortly after with the score on 65, before two wickets to Adamson and a run out reduced East to 5-76.
Doug Harris top-scored for East with 47, while No.10 Brendan Palmer made 43.
