HALES entertained Stowe in Norfolk Alliance Division One and lost by one wicket on an eventful day.
Hales captain Steve Rowe again lost the toss and was asked to bat first, the choice he would have made.
Hales lost regular wickets throughout their innings.
Although they could not legislate for the five controversial lbw decisions, they contributed to their own downfall with several shocking batting displays.
Rob Andersen made a plucky 25 before being adjudged lbw.
The batting highlight of the day was from Chris Hlengani who made 52 not out. Had there been more sensible batting with at least one other able to support Hlengani, Hales would have posted a more meaningful total to defend.
