Harry Tulk made 26 but Hythe came back well with 2 Wakely wickets. O.T's skipper Charlie King 58 & Rhys Wathen 21 then added 61 for the 5th wicket.
Tom Gates took 4-49 as Hythe kept in the game OT's finally all out for a par 223.
Hythe were going to have to start well but lost Tom Gates cheaply. Andy Wakely 42 & Zac Millar then added 93 for the 2nd wicket. Hythe lost regular wickets but Millar was in sublime form hitting 7x4s & 6x6s before being out for 94 with Hythe 172-6 and still requiring 52.

RESULT : O.T's & Romsey Beat Hythe & Dibden by 2 Runs
