Sevenoaks Vine moved 16 points clear at the top of the Shepherd Neame Kent Cricket League Premier Division after beating Beckenham by 66 runs in the first round of the win/lose matches on Saturday.

Vine recovered from 69-7 to post 144-8 in a match reduced to 30 overs a side after Friday’s heavy rain.

Lorne Burns top scored for the hosts with an unbeaten 43.

Beckenham were all out for 78 in reply with Tom Parsons, Tom Coldman and Luke Blackaby all taking two wickets.

Blackheath were dismissed for only 84 in the 25th over with Tanweer Sikandar (23) and Warren Lee (23) the only batsmen to reach double figures.

All-rounder James Hockley, who had earlier taken 2-13, then smashed an unbeaten 62, including 15 fours, off only 26 balls as Hartley wrapped up the win in the ninth over.
