CHECKLEY must have thought victory was in the bag against Hem Heath, with the visitors hanging on at 87-6 in pursuit of their hosts' 166 all out.

However, the visitors' lower order batsmen rode to the rescue to clinch an unlikely three-wicket triumph.

Zephryn Hunt (43no), Spencer Batt (36) and Fia Hussain (36) were the Hem Heath heroes.

Michael Allen had earlier top scored with 58 for Checkley.
