Bowl­ing star Kelly be­comes cen­tury-mak­ing hero

Bangor Mail - - SPORT -

BAN­GOR edged ever nearer to the North Wales League Sun­day 3rd XI Divi­sion ti­tle with a 15-0 white­wash of Carmel & Dis­trict at Tŷ Newydd.

The re­sult gives the Ci­ti­zens a 33-point lead at the pin­na­cle, with sec­ond­place Me­nai Bridge hav­ing a game in hand.

Ban­gor have three fix­tures re­main­ing and the Bridge four. Both are set to meet at Tyn-y-Caeau on the fi­nal day of the cam­paign.

Last Sun­day vis­i­tors Carmel called the coin cor­rectly and put the home side into bat.

Ban­gor scored for fun, their even­tual to­tal a mas­sive 258-4 off 40 overs.

Ai­dan Kelly, a bowl­ing star for the Ci­ti­zens this sea­son, shone with the bat on this oc­ca­sion, record­ing a maiden cen­tury in scor­ing 103 not out. Opener Nigel Barry added 60.

Carmel’s re­ply was short-lived as they nose­dived to 54 all out in just 19 overs.

Saif Ijaz re­turned re­mark­able fig­ures of three overs, two maid­ens, four wick­ets for one run, while Jon Hendry claimed 3-15 and man of the match Kelly 2-10 to reach 66 vic­tims for the sum­mer at only 6.36 apiece.

That makes Kelly the en­tire league’s top wick­et­taker, with club-mate Fran­cois Mostert sec­ond on 56.
