Tish fall short against Carew



ST ISHMAELS fell just short in their run chase on Saturday (July 3) as Carew secured victory by 15 runs.

Tish won the toss and chose to bowl first and they were able to bowl Carew out for 178.

Carew lost Tim Hicks and Nick Davies early on, both to the bowling of Brennan Devonald, as they slipped to 31-2.

Lewis Hicks and Nick Scourfield shared 41 runs before the third wicket fell. Devonald was involved again, this time taking the catch to dismiss Hicks on a score of 25 and give Andrew Pawlett his first wicket.

Scourfield and Ian Sefton shared another 30 runs for the fourth wicket but when Sefton was caught by Peter Bradshaw off the bowling of Lewis Rhead it sparked a mini-collapse.

That left the home side on 102-4 but they soon found themselves on 122-8.

Luke Hicks fell in similar fashion to Sefton for a third-ball duck and Jonathan Pawlett then bowled Scourfield.

Scourfield had hit seven fours in a score of 49 before he was dismissed.

Ceri Brace was then trapped leg before by Jonathan Pawlett and soon after James Hinchcliffe fell the same way to the bowling of Rhead.

Iori Hicks and Sam Harts steadied the ship and they were able to share 45 runs for the ninth wicket.

Hicks hit three fours and a six in his score of 32 from 21 balls before he was caught by Jonathan Pawlett off the bowling of Devonald.

Harts hit a four and a six in his score of 22 but he was caught and bowled by Rhead to bring the innings to a close in the 41st over.

It meant that Tish would need 179 to win but they lost wickets at regular intervals early on in their reply and they soon found themselves on 66-5.

Lewis Rhead was the first to go as he was caught by James Hinchcliffe off the bowling of Sam Harts.

Jonathan Pawlett was next to go as he was also caught by Hinchcliffe off the bowling of Sion Jenkins.

Phil Cockburn was then trapped leg before by Iori Hicks who then also had Brennan Devonald caught by Lewis Hicks.

Andrew Pawlett was then caught and bowled Ceri Brace on a score of 14.

With five wickets down Tish were staring at defeat but opener Peter Bradshaw and Ieuan Hawkins shared 54 runs for the sixth wicket as they looked to get their side back in the game.

Bradshaw had reached his half century but Hawkins, who had made a score of 22, was then bowled by Brace.

Bradshaw shared another 30 runs with James Hall but Hall was sent back to the pavilion after being caught by Nick Davies off the bowling of Brace.

Brace then caught and bowled Peter Thomas to reduce Tish to 151-8.

Bradshaw had hit five fours and four sixes in his knock of 91 and he looked well set to reach his century.

It wasn’t to be though as he was bowled by James Hinchcliffe to all but end Tish’s hopes of victory.

Robbie Thomas and Graham Ninnis took over but they were unable to help Tish to their target as Carew held on to secure victory.

Llangwm edge past Tish to book Harrison Allen quarter final spot



LLANGWM secured their place in the quarter finals of the Harrison Allen Bowl on Wednesday night (May 25) as they beat St Ishmaels by 4 runs.

Tish won the toss and chose to field and they restricted Llangwm to 146-9 in their 22 overs.

Noah Davies and Joe Kiff made a good start for the hosts as they shared 67 runs for the first wicket.

Kiff was the first man to go as he was caught by Ieuan Hawkins off the bowling of Brennan Devonald on a score of 27 that had included two fours and two sixes.

Soon after, Davies, who had hit one of each boundary in his score of 27, was also following Kiff back to the pavilion after being bowled by Jonathan Pawlett.

Pawlett also claimed the wicket of Will Beresford before Steven Mills departed on a score of 16 (1 four, 1 six) when he was caught and bowled by Devonald.

That left Llangwm on 107-4 but scores of 15 from Matthew Kiff and 16 not out from David Lewis saw them to their total.

For Tish, Pawlett finished with excellent figures of 4-41 while Devonald finished with 3-25.

Peter Bradshaw hit two early fours in his score of 12 but he was run out.

Karl Rhead and Andrew Palmer shared 42 runs for the second wicket as Palmer made his way to a score of 35.

Rhead was bowled by Steven Mills who then did the same to Brennan Devonald moments later.

Palmer had reached 42 with five fours and a six but when he was brilliantly caught by Luke Brock off the bowling of Mills, Tish had slipped to 77-4.

Phil Cockburn and Jonathan Pawlett then shared 23 runs for the fifth wicket as they looked to keep Tish in the game.

Pawlett hit a six but was then caught by Oliver Davies to give Mills his fourth wicket and figures of 4-28.

Cockburn and Andew Pawlett then shared 37 runs for the sixth wicket as they took the tie down to the final over of the game.

They scored 17 runs off the 20th over and 18 runs off the 21st over meaning they would need 11 off the final over to win it.

Cockburn took a run off the first to bring Pawlett on strike. After missing the third ball he went for a run that wasn’t there and keeper Beresford ran out Cockburn.

He had hit two fours and three sixes in his score of 39 from 30 balls.

Andrew Pawlett and Andrew Williams could only take five runs from the next five balls but it wasn’t enough for victory.

Pawlett finished unbeaten on a score of 20 from 11 balls with one four and two sixes.
