Lawrenny edge past Tish



LAWRENNY earned their twelfth win of the season on Saturday (Aug 17) as they edged to a two-wicket win away to St Ishmaels.

Tish batted first after Lawrenny won the toss and they made a good score of 189-6 from their 45 overs.

The same players then swapped roles to dismiss Nicholas and reduce Tish to 84-3.

Rob Williams then bowled Daniel Howells before Marsh did the same to Brennan Devonald who departed without scoring.

That saw Tish slip to 92-5 but Phil Cockburn and Jack Nicholas then shared 94 runs for the sixth wicket to put their side in a good position.

Cockburn hit thirteen fours and a six in his score of 89 before he was caught by Steve Lewis off the bowling of Ryan Morton.

Nicholas finished not out on 28 as Tish made a score of 189, setting Lawrenny 190 to win.

Andrew Skeels and Brad McDermott-Jenkins then shared 54 runs for the fourth wicket as they looked to get their side going.

Skeels hit four boundaries in his score of 28 but he was then bowled by Devonald.

He then claimed his fourth wicket as he bowled James Phillips for a first ball duck.

The score quickly became 100-6 as McDermott-Jenkins was caught by Daniel Richards off the bowling of Andrew Pawlett on a score of 33 that included three fours and two sixes.

Pawlett then bowled Joe Kidney as Lawrenny slipped further into trouble on 119-7.

Steve Lewis and Ryan Morton then shared 59 runs for the eighth wicket as they edged towards their target.

Lewis hit four fours and a six in his score of 43 but he was then bowled by Harry Nicholas.

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.
