BURY senior inter-league team turned on the style to beat Bolton 156-92 at home.

An excellent performance proved too much for their local rivals who put in a below par display and were well beaten.

Kerry Anderton (16), Anne Truffas and Julie Bluer (11 each) hit double figures for Bolton who had four batters who failed to score.

Bury led 61-51 at the interval and they stepped up a gear in the second innings with another 95 runs while Bolton were held to 41 runs by Bury’s brilliant fielding.

Shereen Kempster and Wendy Kelly both scored 21 and Gemma Birtwistle added 18 for Bury.

Bolton failed to respond as eight batters did not score. Paula Hague scored two and it was left to Sharron Buller and Kerry Anderton to try to rescue the situation.

Both hit two rounders in their respective totals of 19 and 15.

Having won all four home matches, Bolton have now lost two away games with one to play.

The rearranged intermediate team match will take place on Monday, August 31, starting at 4pm, and will be played at Close Park.
