Win keeps Llandy­sul in third place

Llanelli Star - - CRICKET -

LLANDY­SUL claimed a 16-run at Llan­gen­nech to main­tain third spot in di­vi­sion one of the South Wales Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion.

Ben Ed­kins and col­leagues will be aim­ing to com­plete a win hat-trick this Satur­day when host­ing Tata Steel, who are cur­rently level on points with the Teifisider­s.

Hav­ing been put in, Llandy­sul found it tough go­ing against ac­cu­rate bowl­ing and sharp ground field­ing, de­spite open­ers Rhy­dian Har­ris (24) and Bled­dyn Morgan (32) putting on 54.

Wick­ets fell cheaply with Llewe­lyn Hughes at num­ber five, who con­tributed 27, the only other bat­man to reach dou­ble fig­ures as the vis­i­tors were dismissed for a mod­est to­tal of 115 in 48.2 overs.

Medium-pacer Mathew Jones did the dam­age for the home side as he bowled line and length for fig­ures of 6-39 in 10 overs.

In the Llan­gen­nech re­ply, open­ers Scott Lloyd and Stu­art Goddard departed with­out both­er­ing the scorer.

Jonny Taube at first wicket down held things to­gether in mak­ing 29 but wick­ets fell reg­u­larly and the in­nings closed on 99.

Medium-pacer Ash­leigh Cox and spin­ner Rhy­dian Har­ris re­turned iden­ti­cal fig­ures of 3-9 in 10 overs.

Llandy­dul en­ter­tain Tata Steel,who are fourth in the ta­ble, on Satur­day.

Llandy­sul Sec­onds are joint top of di­vi­sion five with Skewen Sec­onds after an eight-wicket win over base­ment boys Baglan Sec­onds at Tir-Dref.

The vis­i­tors were bowled out for 136 and the Teifi Val­ley high­fly­ers knocked off the re­quired runs for the loss of two wick­ets to bank 17 points.
