HAVERFORDWEST survived a scare to beat Carew by four wickets on Saturday. Carew slipped to 162-9 after making a promising start with Simon Holliday taking five wickets. Simon Wood and Shaun Whitfield did their best to give Carew a chance of victory, but it was not enough as Nigel Delaney and Huw Scriven secured the win for Town. Ian Sefton and Nick Scourfield both fell cheaply, but Tom Davies and Simon Wood put on 75 for the third wicket. Tom Davies top scored with 75 scoring 10 fours in his knock. However they were both out in the space of six balls sparking a collapse. Carew were looking strong on 133- 2 but the final six wickets fell for 29 runs. AJ Revu, Josh Wilment and Simon Holliday did the damage with Holliday finishing with figures of 5-29 from just eight overs. Simon Wood was in fine form with the ball as he took the first three wickets of Haverfordwest’s innings. Shaun Whitfield then got in on the act to leave Town struggling on 57-4. The situation worsened in the 23rd over when AJ Revu was trapped LBW by Whitfield leaving the score on 75-5. However, Jonathan Strawbridge and Nigel Delaney put on 63 for the sixth wicket to swing the game back in their favour. Strawbridge was out for 29 but Delaney carried on, top scoring with 42. He was well supported by Huw Scriven who hit 21 not out from just 14 balls helping his side to reach their target with three overs to spare.
