LAWRENNY upset the odds once again as they beat leaders Haverfordwest to deal a blow to their Division 1 title hopes on Saturday (Jul 7).

Ian Jenkins and Ryan Morton both took three wickets for Lawrenny before Steve Campbell finished not out on 67 to help his side reach 220-6.

Toby Hayman then scored 83 in Burton’s reply but they finished their innings on 196-7.

Fourth placed Whitland failed to take advantage of Neyland’s slip up as they were beaten by Llangwm. Whitland were all out for 151 in their innings as Noah and Ollie Davies took seven wickets between them.

Phil Llewellyn then scored 51 for Llangwm and Matthew Kiff scored 47 as they reached their target with three wickets in hand.

Blues battle to win over Aberaeron in KO Cup

Published

on

HAVERFORDWEST booked their place in the quarter finals of the Pembrokeshire KO Cup, where they will meet Pembroke Dock Harlequins, after beating Aberaeron on Wednesday night (Oct 20).

Despite the atrocious weather conditions, which saw rain batter the Pembroke Road playing surface for much of the game, both sides played an excellent game.

In the end it was the Blues who came out on top with a 44-6 win.

Outside Half Jake Morgan got the Blues rolling early on with a penalty and Rhys Baker then scored the game’s first try to make it 8-0.

Second Row Jack Clancy got his name on the score sheet but the conversion was missed.

Aberaeron then got themselves on the board with a penalty but the Blues were soon back on the attack with Will Blackburn next to go over.

That was converted by Morgan to give the home side a 20-3 lead.

Lewis Tingay and Rhys Baker added further tries for the Blues while Aber added a further penalty as the sides went in at half time with the score reading 30-6.

Early in the second half Tingay added his second try of the night and Morgan added the conversion.

That all but ended any hopes the away side had of getting themselves back in the game and the Blues continued to play despite the pouring rain.

Tingay then completed his hat trick with a try under the posts giving Morgan a simple conversion to make it 44-6.

There was no scoring in the final twenty minutes but the Blues had done the job and booked their place in the last eight.

Their quarter final with the Quins will be played on or before January 22.
