Davies helps Town see off Llangwm



HAVERFORDWEST’s Dai Davies was just five runs short of a century as he helped his side to victory over Llangwm on Saturday.

In a high-scoring game, Llangwm posted 210-6 as five of their batsmen made scores of 30 or more.

After winning the toss, openers Will Beresford and Joe Kiff got Llangwm off to a good start with a first wicket stand worth 44 runs.

Kiff hit six fours in his score of 30 but he was then caught by George Thomas off the bowling of Archie Thomas.

Beresford and Gary Phillips then shared the best stand of the match as they put on 72 runs for the second wicket.

Phillips hit three fours and two sixes in his score of 40 but he was then trapped leg before by Simon Holliday.

Matthew Kiff did not last long in the middle as he was caught by Mike Jones off the bowling of Clive Tucker after facing nine balls.

Town began to hit back as Tucker then had Beresford caught by Archie Thomas on a score of 42 that included seven fours.

Holliday then bowled Richard Brock for a golden duck and when James Venables was caught by George Thomas off the bowling of Holliday, Llangwm had slipped to 138-6.

Noah and Ollie Davies then shared another 72 runs to see the home side to their total.

Ollie hit three fours and two sixes as his score of 41 came from 26 balls while Noah hit four fours in his knock of 32.

That set Town 211 to win but they lost opener Nikhil Mathias early on when he was caught by Gary James off the bowling of Matthew Kiff.

Simon Holliday, fresh from his Harrison Allen semi-final ton, and Dai Davies then shared 93 runs for the second wicket.

Holliday continued where he had left off as he hit six fours and four sixes in his score of 68 but he was then trapped leg before by Jo Phillips.

Phillips then also bowled Lee Summons as Town were reduced to 111-3.

Davies and Ben Field shared 65 runs for the fourth wicket as Town edged closer to their target. Field made a score of 21 before he was bowled by Ollie Davies.

Adam James hit a four and a six in his score of 12 from the eight balls he faced but his wicket, caught off the bowling of Ollie Davies, left Town on 196-5 with four overs left.

Davies continued though and after he hit ten fours and three sixes in his score of 95, a series of extras gave Town victory.

On Saturday (July 20), Haverfordwest are at home to Saundersfoot while Llangwm travel to Lawrenny.


Blues battle to win over Aberaeron in KO Cup



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.
