Davies keeps cool to see Llangwm home

Published

on

LLANGWM’s Noah Davies hit a six with two balls to spare to help his side to victory over St Ishmaels on Saturday (Jul 6).

It is just Llangwm’s second win of the season and they now sit 40 points from safety.

Division 1’s bottom side won the toss and elected to field but Tish made a good score of 208-6 from their 45 overs.

Peter Bradshaw and Daniel Richards got the visitors off to a good start with 58 runs for the first wicket.

Richards scored 27 but he was then stumped by Will Beresford off the bowling of Toby Asson, fresh from his seven-wicket haul in the Alec Colley the previous Thursday.

Daniel Howells shared another 39 runs with Bradshaw for the second wicket but Howells was caught by Ollie Davies off the bowling of Luke Brock on a score of 22.

Bradshaw and Brennan Devonald then shared 74 runs for the third wicket as they looked to set a challenging target for their hosts.

Bradshaw hit eight fours and two sixes in his score of 62 before he was caught by Joe Kiff off the bowling of Noah Davies.

Tish began to fight back as Matthew Kiff then had Phil Cockburn caught by Ewan Griffiths and Jack Nicholas caught by Joe Phillips.

Devonald had hit three fours and five sixes in his excellent knock of 64 from 58 balls but he was also caught by Phillips off the bowling of Kiff.

Tish finished on 208 with their total helped along by 17 extras.

Llangwm knew they would need to bat well if they were to pick up the win and openers Will Beresford and Joe Kiff shared 47 runs for the first wicket.

Kiff scored 37 from 29 balls as he hit six fours and a six but he was then caught by Peter Bradshaw off the bowling of Andrew Palmer.

Richard Brock made a score of 11 before he was caught by Daniel Howells off the bowling of Palmer as the hosts were reduced to 79-2.

Will Beresford and Matthew Kiff then shared 56 runs for the third wicket as they continued to put runs on the board.

Beresford made a score of 46 but he was caught and bowled by Brennan Devonald.

Kiff and Noah Davies shared another 27 runs for the fourth wicket before Kiff, who hit five fours and a six in his score of 46, was caught by Jack Nicholas off the bowling of Devonald.

That made Llangwm’s score 162-4 and Davies and Luke Brock continued to add runs with a stand of 29.

Brock hit three fours and a six as his score of 23 came from 17 balls but he was then stumped by Jack Nicholas off the bowling of Andrew Williams.

Jordan Milich then had James Venables caught by Nicholas as Llangwm were reduced to 200-6.

Llangwm had edged towards their target and they needed two runs from the final over to win.

Davies had already hit two fours as he reached a score of 25 but with the fourth ball of the over he launched a stunning six to finish not out on 31 and earn victory for his side.

On Saturday (Jul 13), Llangwm host Haverfordwest while Tish will look to get back to winning ways when they host leaders Neyland.
