Vikings knock Swifts for six

Published

on

HAKIN United moved to the top of the table on Monday night (Apr 9), as they thrashed Monkton Swifts 6-1.

It was a dominant display from the Vikings who thoroughly deserved their victory which saw Nicky Woodrow scoring twice for the visitors.

They nearly took the lead after three minutes when Leigh Marchant’s cross into the box found Ben Fawcett but his shot went across the face of goal and out for a goal kick.

Fawcett then set up a chance for Woodrow but his header was saved by Monkton keeper Michael Murray.

With twelve minutes gone, Hakin opened the scoring as Marchant sent a free kick into the box which found Justin Harding and he lobbed the ball over the keeper before Ben Fawcett tapped the ball home on the line to make sure it went in.

Patrick McDonagh then beat the offside trap and went through one on one with the keeper but Adrian Devonald made a great save to deny him.

Moments later Hakin doubled their lead as Nicky Woodrow saw his first effort saved before firing a second effort low into the net.

Daniel Armstong’s header goes in despite keeper Murray getting a touch

It was soon 3-0 as Daniel Armstrong’s header trickled over the line despite Murray getting a hand to it.

Monkton then had a good spell in the game as Ben Nicholas came close when a corner floated just over the back post and McDonagh sent an effort just wide of the left hand post.

Gareth Hunt had a chance to score shortly before the break as he cut inside before shooting but his effort went over the bar.

The Vikings thought they had a fourth on the stroke of half time as good play between Adam John, Marchant and Woodrow saw the latter poke the ball home but the goal was ruled out for offside.

Hakin continued to put the pressure on early in the second half as a free kick from Ryan Wilson was tipped over before Woodrow headed straight at Murray.

Six minutes later they finally had their fourth goal as Adam John did well to win the ball back before shooting low into the bottom left corner.

Monkton pulled a goal back two minutes after as Ben Nicholas’ free kick was deflected in to the net.

Martin Carroll then came close to pulling a second goal back but his effort smacked off the post and the danger was cleared.

On the hour mark Marchant again sent a cross into the box which found Fawcett at the back post but he fired an effort just inches over the bar.

The Vikings then added a fifth goal soon after in fine style as Harding sent an excellent cross into the box for Woodrow who headed back across goal and into the top corner.

Gareth Hunt then saw a shot saved as did Joe Lewis as Monkton continued to look for more goals.

With six minutes to go Hakin made it 6-1 as Harding finally got the goal his play had deserved as he fired into the roof of the net after being set up by sub Jack Wilson.

On Thursday (Apr 12), Hakin make the trip to Lamphey while Monkton are next in action on Saturday (Apr 14), when they take on Goodwick United.

Llangwm edge past Tish to book Harrison Allen quarter final spot

Published

on

LLANGWM secured their place in the quarter finals of the Harrison Allen Bowl on Wednesday night (May 25) as they beat St Ishmaels by 4 runs.

Tish won the toss and chose to field and they restricted Llangwm to 146-9 in their 22 overs.

Noah Davies and Joe Kiff made a good start for the hosts as they shared 67 runs for the first wicket.

Kiff was the first man to go as he was caught by Ieuan Hawkins off the bowling of Brennan Devonald on a score of 27 that had included two fours and two sixes.

Soon after, Davies, who had hit one of each boundary in his score of 27, was also following Kiff back to the pavilion after being bowled by Jonathan Pawlett.

Pawlett also claimed the wicket of Will Beresford before Steven Mills departed on a score of 16 (1 four, 1 six) when he was caught and bowled by Devonald.

That left Llangwm on 107-4 but scores of 15 from Matthew Kiff and 16 not out from David Lewis saw them to their total.

For Tish, Pawlett finished with excellent figures of 4-41 while Devonald finished with 3-25.

Peter Bradshaw hit two early fours in his score of 12 but he was run out.

Karl Rhead and Andrew Palmer shared 42 runs for the second wicket as Palmer made his way to a score of 35.

Rhead was bowled by Steven Mills who then did the same to Brennan Devonald moments later.

Palmer had reached 42 with five fours and a six but when he was brilliantly caught by Luke Brock off the bowling of Mills, Tish had slipped to 77-4.

Phil Cockburn and Jonathan Pawlett then shared 23 runs for the fifth wicket as they looked to keep Tish in the game.

Pawlett hit a six but was then caught by Oliver Davies to give Mills his fourth wicket and figures of 4-28.

Cockburn and Andew Pawlett then shared 37 runs for the sixth wicket as they took the tie down to the final over of the game.

They scored 17 runs off the 20th over and 18 runs off the 21st over meaning they would need 11 off the final over to win it.

Cockburn took a run off the first to bring Pawlett on strike. After missing the third ball he went for a run that wasn’t there and keeper Beresford ran out Cockburn.

He had hit two fours and three sixes in his score of 39 from 30 balls.

Andrew Pawlett and Andrew Williams could only take five runs from the next five balls but it wasn’t enough for victory.

Pawlett finished unbeaten on a score of 20 from 11 balls with one four and two sixes.
