Saundersfoot claim first win

Published

on

SAUNDERSFOOT claimed their first win of the season on Saturday (Jun 12) as they beat St Ishmaels by nine wickets.

Saundersfoot won the toss and elected to field and that proved to be a good decision as they were able to bowl Tish out for 108 inside 29 overs.

Sam Frankin finished with excellent figures of 6-22 and he made the breakthrough as he had Daniel Richards caught by Danny Caine.

Franklin also had Harry Nicholas caught by Tudor Hurle before Franklin returned again to trap Philip Cockburn leg before.

That left Tish on 15-3 before Brennan Devonald and Jack Nicholas shared 35 runs as they looked to get their side going again.

However, Franklin then had Devonald caught by Yannic Parker on a score of 14 to reduce Tish to 50-4.

Nicholas and Andrew Pawlett then added another 20 runs to the total but it was Franklin again who brought the partnership to an end as he bowled Pawlett on a score of 17.

Franklin then claimed his sixth as he bowled Ieuan Hawkins.

Nicholas and Robbie Thomas added 21 runs for the seventh wicket but this time it was Hurle who made the breakthrough as he had Nicholas caught by Tom Mansbridge.

Nicholas had hit five fours and a six in a score of 35 and wickets continued to fall once he departed.

Neil Powling had the wickets of James Hall and Peter Thomas while John Mansbridge caught and bowled Thomas on a score of 20 to bring the innings to a close.

It meant that Saundersfoot would need 109 to win and they made a great start to their reply.

Tom Mansbridge and Danny Caine shared 71 runs for the first wicket to set up the win for their side.

Mansbridge hit five fours in a score of 27 but he was then caught by Ieuan Hawkins off the bowling of Robbie Thomas.

They were unable to take any further wickets though as Caine and Sam Franklin saw the home side over the line.

Franklin finished unbeaten on 10 while Caine hit six fours and three sixes in a score of 60 not out.

Carew go through in extra time

Published

CAREW needed extra time to beat Tumble to book their place in the next round of the West Wales Cup on Saturday (Dec 4).

Shaun Whitfield had put Carew ahead at the end of first half stoppage time but just four minutes into the second half, Trystan Leech pulled Tumble level.

Jordan Richards then scored Carew’s second to put them back ahead and Whitfield’s second goal looked to have sealed the visitors’ passage into the last sixteen.

However, Leech grabbed his second five minutes from time to give the home side hope of forcing the game into extra time.

And Leech completed his hat trick in the 92nd minute to make it 3-3 and to ensure the teams would be playing another 30 minutes.

In the first period of extra time it was Carew who got the goal to put them back in the lead with Harvey Langston scoring.

Tumble were unable to find a way back this time and Joe Williams’ goal two minutes from the end secured the win for the Rooks.

Narberth seconds earn bonus point win over Aber

Published

on

NARBERTH seconds (also known as Narberth Athletic) travelled to Aberystwyth as they looked to leapfrog Newcastle Emlyn at the top of the West Wales Conference League.

There was a gale blowing straight down the pitch from the clubhouse, which made attractive rugby difficult in such cold weather conditions.

Narberth lost the toss and played with the wind. They put the home side under pressure for most of the first period using the elements to their advantage and scored two good tries through scrum half Jordan James and livewire flanker Dylan Walsh and, converted by Shane Rossiter but was a 12 point advantage enough going into the second half?

Narberth coach James Merriman sent on two heavyweight replacements at half time in Daf Walters and Jac Norcross to help carry the ball against the elements.

The tactics worked superbly with Walters rumbling over for two tries and centre Ryan Scourfield rounding off a tremendous second half performance for the young Otters going over under the posts to put the score beyond doubt and an excellent bonus point win.

After the game and changing out of their playing strip, the boys then put on their Santa outfits for the Christmas social and long drive home.
