Fox Lodge league woes continue thumbnailFox Lodge’s Aidan Logue hits on the off.

FOX Lodge suffered their seventh defeat in eight league games as visitors Eglinton came away with a 4 wicket win.

Foxies overseas player Cebo Tshiki and Jordan Austin (21) gave them a solid platform after the early loss of skipper Brian Allen, but Tshiki was trapped lbw by Richard Wylie for 65 and the game began to swing in Eglinton's favour.

Wylie was on form and TJ Nicholl's 21 was the best of the rest for Fox Lodge as the final seven wickets fell for only another 58 runs. A total of 186 all out was then adjusted due to the weather to a new target of 134 runs in 24 overs, and Eglinton were odds-on to win from there.

Adam Boyd (3-31) and Jason Milligan (2-16) gamely tried for the hosts but Andy Millar (41) and Wylie (26) set up the win for the villagers, and it was left to skipper Stuart Thompson (39 not out) to see out the victory.
