Stoneywood-Dyce batted first at Peoples Park and opener Fi Urquhart top scored with 65 as the home side closed on 212 for 9 in their 45 overs. She was well supported by Michael Louw (39) and Andrew Rayner (32) as the home side finished on their top score of the season so far.

In reply Peter Drummond (45) and Denis Christie (34) featured with the bat but the visitors could only muster 147 as Jamie King with 4 for 37 and Michael Louw with 3 for 25 dominated with the ball.

After the match Meigle skipper Iain Stewart paid tribute to the home sides efforts saying “We knew it was going to be a tough game today, Stoneys have to many good players in their line up to be where they are.

Fi Urquhart played really well and deserved her half century and was backed up by Jamie King's impressive bowling.

The only time we have fielded as badly as that was against Falkland in the Village Cup back in April and now we need to bounce back quickly next week against Dundee and I believe we can.”

Strathmore on the day that news came through that club stalwart Donald Crighton former captain and member of the 1971 Scottish Cup winning side had passed away slumped to the bottom of the league after suffering an eight wicket defeat at Lochlands.
