NEYLAND ended their recent losing streak as they earned a draw with ST ISHMAELS on Saturday.

Phil Cockburn then scored 58 not out in Tish’s reply and Andrew Williams scored 60 as they finished short of their target on 171-7.

WHITLAND ensured an early afternoon finish on Saturday as they dismissed JOHNSTON for just 42 before reaching their target in double quick time.

Johnston’s Chris Goodridge was his side’s top scorer with 17 runs but Iestyn Scourfield was in fine form for Whitland as he took six wickets. Steffan James also took four wickets.

Dylan Blain scored 23 in reply for Whitland and although Liam James took two wickets for the home side, Whitland eased to their target.

KILGETTY boosted their survival hopes as they picked up their first win of the season with a seven-wicket win at LAWRENNY.

Lawrenny batted first and were all out for 167 with Brad McDermott-Jenkins scoring 36 and Joe Kidney scoring 34.

Ross Hardy and Jack Parkinson each took three wickets for Kilgetty before Hardy scored 40 in their reply. Kyle Marsh scored 44 and Toby Poole finished not out on 45 to help his side over the line.

CRESSELLY bounced back from last week’s defeat to Lawrenny as they eased to a comfortable victory over LLANGWM on Saturday.

Llangwm’s batsmen failed to make double figure scores as they were all out for 60 with Dan James taking five wickets. Sam Harts also struck twice before Dan Sutton scored 31 and Ryan Lewis added 29 to help their side to victory.

Haverfordwest now top the table by 21 points from second placed Cresselly with the two teams playing each other in Cresselly this weekend (Jun 30) in what should be an excellent match.

The game between the two teams finished in a draw earlier in the season and it is likely to be another close game with both teams battling it out for the Division 1 title.

Also on Saturday, Whitland are at home as they take on Lawrenny and Neyland are away as they travel to Llangwm.

Kilgetty will look to pick up another win when they take on Burton while St Ishmaels are at home to Johnston.

Whitland 87-7 Beat Kilgetty 52-10 by 35 runs

THIS years final was between the top two sides, from the North Zones with Kilgetty beating Whitland in the group stage and then Hook in the Semi final whilst Whitland beat Neyland in the other Semi final.

Captain of Kilgetty Jamie Keating won the toss against his counterpart Charlie Bujega of Whitland and decided to bowl first. The Square and Outfield was in fine condition with the hard work of Kevin Bowen & Chris Bradshaw.

Both teams had very strong bowling outfits and in both innings the ball dominated the bat. The Whitland opening bats Daf James (17) and Rhys Jones (12) progressed the score to 32 without loss off 7 overs when Noah Williams struck quickly followed by a wicket for Rhys Eyon With the Score at 42-2 off 12 it was anyone’s game. It was the turn of the Whitland Captain to play a decisive as it turned out innings of 26 before being run out by a direct hit by Rhys Eynon.

Cian Rees scored a late 13 being caught and bowled by the returning Keating who also had a run out with a direct hit and with 17 Extras the Whitland Innings closed on 87-7. For Kilgetty Jamie Keating (1-14), Kiaran Sine (0-19), Rhys Eynon (1-13), Noah Williams (2-19) and Logan Hall (1-16) all bowled well.

Opinion was very much divided at the break although Whitland knew they needed a good start and that’s exactly what they got. Coach Mark Lee was in his third final in successive years, having lost the previous two, and his team talk worked wonders and there was some inspired bowling by the whole team who never let the Kilgetty batters get into their stride.

Wickets fell at regular intervals with opening bowlers Cian Rees and Charlie Bujega being to hot to handle on the night removing the danger men of Rhys Eynon, Kiaran Sine and Logan Hall (6).

It was only Harry Morgan whose has been in fine form recently put up any resistance to the Whitland onslaught with lovely cover and straight drives before becoming Bujega’s second victim. Rees finished with 3-9 and Bujega 2-17 with both taking a catch each.

Late resistance by by Jamie Keating (6) and Taylor Lewis (8 ) advanced the score but with Cai Lewis 2 -11. Freddy Davies 2-5 and Daf James 1-8 aided by three catches by Alex Passmore together with 11 extras saw the Kilgetty innings close on 52-10. This left Whitland as deserved winners on the night.
