Double centurions stun Whitland

Published

on

SAUNDERSFOOT openers Tom Mansbridge and Danny Caine both scored centuries as they set up a big win for their side over Whitland on Saturday (Aug 3).

Whitland won the toss but elected to field and they could only watch as Mansbridge and Caine piled on the runs in an opening stand worth 207 runs.

Caine was the first to reach his century as he hit sixteen fours and a six as his score of 102 came from 108 balls.

It was Geraint Jones who eventually made the breakthrough for Whitland as he bowled Caine.

Jones then also had Sam Franklin caught by Nathan Evans as the home side began to hit back.

Mansbridge then reached his century after hitting eleven fours and two sixes but he was then out on a score of 100, caught by Gethin Scourfield off the bowling of Jones.

Scourfield then bowled Jamie Hitchings for a fourth-ball duck, reducing Saundersfoot to 233-4.

Nick Cope hit a six and four in his score of 20 from 15 balls but he was then caught by James Thomas off the bowling of Scourfield.

The same bowler then had John Mansbridge caught by Jamie Thomas on a score of 10.

Yannic Parker hit a six and a four in a late score of 18 from 12 balls as he and James Caine guided their side to an excellent total of 278-6.

Whitland knew they would need to bat well if they were to reach their target and openers Ed John and Adam Davies shared 50 runs for the first wicket.

Danny Caine picked up the first wicket as he had Davies caught by Taran Richards on a score of 27 that included five fours.

Soon after, Ed John, who had hit three fours and a six in his score of 23, was caught by Sam Franklin off the bowling of Caine to leave Whitland on 55-2.

Geraint Jones and Gethin Scourfield 46 runs for the third wicket but it was Caine who struck again to bowl Scourfield on a score of 17.

Jones had hit five fours and a six in his score of 32 from 20 balls but he was then caught by Tom Mansbridge off the bowling of Franklin.

Nathan Evans and Matthew Davies continued to keep Whitland in the game with another good stand worth 63 runs.

Evans hit two fours and two sixes as he scored 26 from 26 balls but he was caught by Mansbridge off the bowling of Neil Powling.

That left Whitland on 170-5 but they soon collapsed to 199 all out.

Nick Cope had Martin Thomas caught by John Mansbridge for a duck and he also trapped Jamie Thomas leg before.

Cope then claimed his third wicket as he bowled Jacob Owen.

Powling then had James Thomas caught by Tom Mansbridge and Rob Owen, on a score of 11, caught by Yannic Parker. It left Matthew Davies not out on a score of 45.

That gave Saundersfoot a 79-run victory and on Saturday (Aug 10) they will look for another win when they host Carew.

Whitland remain third from bottom in the table and on Saturday they travel to fourth from bottom St Ishmaels with both sides looking to secure their Division 1 status.

Veteran Vikings beaten by Swansea

Published

on

HAKIN United Over 40s travelled to the Llandarcy Academy of Sport last Sunday (Nov 28) to play Swansea University.

Hakin took the lead inside 10 minutes as Matthew Price raced clear of the Uni defence before side footing the ball into the bottom corner.

A great start for the Veteran Vikings, but on the half hour mark, two quick goals for the Swansea men turned the game on its head.

A third goal just before half time put Swansea firmly in the drivers seat, but, the Hakin players felt that the goal was offside and that there was a handball in the build-up.

However, despite all of the protests, the goal stood.

Hakin looked far more purposeful in the second half, but they failed to find a goal that was going to get them back in the game.

Hakin are next in action on Sunday, December 12, when Church Village visit the Obs.

Hakin 40s: Jim Payne, Nick Jones, Adam Collins, Ali Davies, Paul Hannon, Marc Devonald, Simon Atyeo, Mark Riley, Paul Jones, Matthew Price, Phil Richards.

Seagulls snatch late win over Nantgaredig

Published

on

FISHGUARD scored a late try to seal their first win of the League 2 West season on Saturday (Nov 27) as they came from behind to beat Nantgaredig.

The Seagulls held a 12-5 lead at the break but Nant hit back in the second half to take a 17-12 lead.

Luke Marshall and Robbie Jones went over for the visitors while James Griffiths added one conversion.

Winger Iwan Thomas scored for the home side and vice-captain Gavin Orson scored and they were also awarded a penalty try.

Griffiths then slotted a penalty through the posts to bring the score back to 17-15.

With the clock ticking over the 80-minute mark, Fishguard attacked and were rewarded when Griffiths scored the try to put his side into the lead. Griffiths then added the extras before the referee blew for full time.

It left the home side feeling deflated having had the victory taken away from them in the last play of the game.

On Saturday, December 4, Fishguard are at home to Milford Haven while Nantgaredig travel to Tycroes.
