Pembroke County Cricket Club Division 2 reports:

Cresselly 2nds (238-4) lost to Kilgetty (243-3) by 7 wickets

A knock of 91 not out from Toby Poole helped Kilgetty complete a brilliant run chase after a century from Richard Harries had seemingly put Cresselly 2nds in command.

After skipper Matthew Lewis had opted to bat, The Doves piled on 238-5, with Rhydian Rees and Harries sharing an opening stand of 190.

Both were then run out, Rees having made 87 (12 fours) and Harries 104, with 13 boundaries.

Lewis (15 not out) hit three fours to help bolster the total late on as Toby Poole (1-53) and Richard Cope (1-23) took a wicket each for Kilgetty.

The visitors then lost Tom Lewis (11) early on in their chase, bowled by Morgan Lewis (1-29), but then their own Matthew Lewis (40 – seven fours and a six) and Christian Phillips (41 – a six and six fours) got them going, with Harries (2-33) removing both batsmen to leave matters 112-3.

It was then that Poole took over, as he and Cope shared an unbroken partnership of 131.

68 of Poole’s 91 runs came in boundaries as he hit 11 fours and four sixes, while Cope was 32 not out, finishing matters in style with a third maximum to seal matters – still with seven overs to spare.

Haverfordwest 2nds (109) lost to Hook (111-3) by 7 wickets

Jacob Lay made 59 not out to ensure Hook took full advantage of a good bowling display at Haverfordwest.

The home side were shot out for 109, with No 4 Dan Field holding things together with 42 not out.

Opener James Marchant had earlier made 21 and No 11 Matthew Vaughan helped get the score past three figures with 17, but Hook stayed on top via Brennan Martin (3-12), Callum James (1-27), Matthew Holder (2-18) and Aled Phelps (3-21).

Lay then hit eight fours and a six to lead his side home, and despite Marchant taking 3-51 as he removed Aled Phelps (13), Craig Nutty (3) and Jake Wicks (9) – Bradley Flood made 13 not out to help Lay finish the job.

Pembroke v Narberth – abandoned with Narberth 176-4, more to follow.

Llechryd (192-9) beat Carew 2nds (127) by 65 runs

Llechryd moved top of the table, temporarily at least, as they were too strong for Carew 2nds.

Batting first, the home side made 192-9, with opener James Betteley leading the way with 50, and he was backed up by the rest of the top four as Michael Carter (38), John Curran (23) and Jonny Lewis (34) also batted well.

For Carew, Iori Hicks led the bowling with 4-47, while Barry Evans (2-38), Rhys Grigg (1-32) and Kerry Waters (1-22) also had wickets.

The visitors then fell to 127 all out, as only opener Evans (23) and Hicks (26) threatened to get going, although Alex Wilkes (13) and Grigg (19) also did their best to hold up the home side.

But Peter Betterley (3-32) and Curran (4-24) were both instrumental as Llechryd took the 10 wickets they needed.

Pembroke Dock (277-8) drew with Johnston (300-9)

Josh Hicks and Scott Griffiths both had a day to remember as Johnston got their best result of the season in an absolute run fest at Imble Lane.

Nearly 600 runs were scored with Hicks hitting 157 to lead Johnston to 300-9, before Griffiths helped The Dock respond with 126 not out as they again secured a draw.

Johnston had been 25-2 when Hicks came in, but with 16 fours and nine sixes he turned the tide emphatically before eventually being bowled by Niall Brunton, having found support from the in-form Liam James, who hit nine fours in his 48.

There was also 27 from No 9 Keegan Codd (five fours) as Johnston posted their highest league total for a number of years – Nick Daley (2-23), Brunton (1-29), Jamie White (2-88), Griffiths (1-52), and Jake Griffiths (1-54) the wicket takers.

The visitors then had high hopes of outright victory as the home side fell to 44-3, but then Griffiths was joined by Archie Wood in rebuilding matters.

Wood hit seven fours in his 38 and there were also important contributions from skipper Craig Butland (30) and Jamie White (15) – but it was Griffiths who ensured Johnson fell two wickets short of victory with 15 fours as he remained unbeaten when stumps were picked up well past 8pm!

It was still a positive result for Johnston, for whom Liam James (3-56), Curtis Hicks (2-65), Nicky Davies (2-52), and Keegan Codd (1-57) had wickets.
