Bangor Mail - - SPORT - Dave Jones

BAN­GOR en­joy a 16-point lead at the North Wales Cricket League Premier Di­vi­sion s sum­mit ahead of this Satur­day’s tr tricky trip to Den­bigh.

The Ci­ti­zens stayed on course for a first top flight ti­tle suc­cess since 2002 when they thrashed cur­rent cham­pi­ons Llan­dudno by a 13-2 mar­gin at The Oval last week­end.

Ban­gor won the toss and elected to bat, post­ing 202-8 off their 50 overs.

South African all-rounder Fran­cois Mostert led the way with an un­beaten 79, Nadeem Rehman adding 30 and David Win­ter 29, while Andy Williams (27) shared in a cru­cial eighth-wicket part­ner­ship of 74 with the Spring­bok.

Tudno were 113-2 at one stage in re­ply, but then nose­dived to 146 all out, spin­ner Rehman lead­ing the way with 4-36, Mostert grab­bing 3-18 and Win­ter 2-17 as Ban­gor tri­umphed by 56 runs.

Me­nai Bridge are sec­ond af­ter see­ing off bot­tom side Llan­r­wst with ease at Tyn-y-Caeau.

The Rw­sters called the coin cor­rectly and opted for first knock, but were sent pack­ing for a pal­try 78, New Zealan­der Zachary Rin­grose col­lect­ing 4-18 from 10.5 overs, Ger­allt Roberts 2-7 and Gethin Long 2-38.

Bridge coasted to 82-3 off 23.3 for a 13-2 suc­cess, Rob­bie Jones 23 not out. Me­nai are home to Gres­ford this Satur­day.

Matthew Jack­son made it backto-back cen­turies for Bod­ed­ern as his team beat vis­i­tors Buck­ley by 63 runs in the 1st XI Sec­ond Di­vi­sion.

Jack­son dom­i­nated with 106, in­clud­ing 12 fours and four sixes, in Boded’s to­tal of 170-9 off 45 overs, then Bucks were rolled over for 107, Jor­dan Tay­lor 3-18, Leighton Williams 2-7 and Terry Warner 2-15 in a 13-2 out­come.

Now up to fourth, Boded visit March­wiel and Wrex­ham this Satur­day.

Ban­gor hold a 21-point ad­van­tage at the 2nd XI West Di­vi­sion peak fol­low­ing a mer­ci­less can­ing of win­less Pwll­heli sec­onds last Satur­day.

Pwll were blitzed out for just 47 in 18.2 overs af­ter choos­ing to bat first, Waleed Idrees (4-14), Ai­dan Kelly (3-12) and Sub­han Khan (2-8) do­ing the dam­age.

Ban­gor breezed to 48-1 in 10 overs, Nigel Barry 29 no, in a 14-1 rout.

Me­nai Bridge Wicket keeper Jack Gower ap­peals for an edge against Llan­r­wst and, in­set, Ban­gor’s Fran­cois Mostert.
