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.

Ben Quartermaine picked up two late wickets as they were able to restrict their hosts to under 200.

Ben Quartermaine scored 17 but he fell to Clive Tucker who went on to finish with figures of 3-15.

CAREW’s Iori Hicks picked up a five-wicket haul on Saturday (May 1) to help his side to victory over St Ishmaels.

Tish won the toss but elected to field first and that gave the visitors the chance to build a good total.

They made a steady start, reaching 40-1 after the first 11 overs. They made a series of 32-run partnerships as opening bat Brian Hall made his way to a half century.

Lewis Hicks made a score of 24 before he was bowled by Andrew Pawlett but when Shaun Whitfield was caught by Peter Bradshaw off the bowling of Jonathan Pawlett, the visitors had slipped to 92-4.

Hall and James Hinchcliffe then shared a stand worth 45 runs for the fifth wicket as they looked to accelerate the score.

Hinchcliffe was caught off the bowling of Andrew Pawlett on a score of 19. Hall was joined by Luke Hicks and the pair shared another good stand.

Hall reached his half century but was then caught by Andrew Pawlett off the bowling of Brennan Devonald on a score of 52, leaving Carew on 176-6.

Hicks then took over as he thumped three sixes in a score of 35 but he was then run out.

Iori Hicks and Ceri Brace both finished unbeaten with a six to their name as Tish were set 202 to win the game.

However, their reply did not get off to the best of starts as they lost three wickets in quick succession, all to the bowling of Rhys Davies, leaving them on 15-3.

They faced an uphill task from then on but Harry Nicholas and Brennan Devonald did their best to get their side back in the contest.

They shared 46 for the fourth wicket but then saw Devonald caught off the bowling of Whitfield on a score of 41.

Tish were not out of the game though as Nicholas was joined by Jonathan Pawlett and the pair shared 63 runs for the fifth wicket.

Nicholas reached his half century but was then out on a score of 51 and Pawlett was out to Iori Hicks on a score of 37.

Hicks then took over matters as he picked up four further wickets, including two ducks, to finish with figures of 5-15.
