MIKE Hernandez starred with the ball as Swanage powered to an 80-run victory Dorset Division One rivals Cerne Valley.

Hernandez claimed Cerne Valley's top-three scorers on his way to figures of four for 30 from his seven overs.

His effort came after Swanage had been put into bat and notched 192 all out from 37.5 overs.

Tom Salmon (27) and John Lewis (19) set Swans on their way before the former was bowled by Roger Edmunds.

Lewis joined him back in the clubhouse to leave Swanage 60-2.

A helpful innings from Simon Goldsack (20) pushed the hosts forward before Craig Wells (32) edged Swanage towards the 150 mark.

Tally-end contributions from skipper Ryan Norman (27), Steve Kent (12) and Hernandez (16no) gave Swans a defendable score.

With the ball, Norman (2-30) removed David Baney (7) and Simon Walsh (6) to make early inroads.

Hernandez claimed three wickets in quick succession to put Cerne Valley in a vulnerable position at 56-5. James Ellwood, George Chubb and Simon Green all fell with just two runs added.

The visitors' struggles continued as Craig Wells trapped Joe Message for one and Steve Kent sent Mark Whitmarsh back to the shed without scoring.

Kent (2-27) also claimed Craig Kellaway's wicket before Wells (2-20) dismissed Edmunds.

Hernandez delivered the final blow, with Lloyd Mitchem (29) removed in the 38th over to secure an emphatic victory.
