Division 1: Cresselly (231 all out ) lost to St Ishmaels (234-4) by 6 wickets

There was a hat trick for Brennan Devonald as Tish took a huge stride towards Division 1 safety with maximum points at Cresselly.

Devonald's treble gave him 5-34, and then he and skipper Phill Cockburn played pivotal roles with the bat as Tish passed the home total of 231 all out.

Despite the Friday rain the pitch was still a haven for runs, and the Doves appeared to take advantage of winning the toss despite losing Dan Sutton (4) early, caught behind by Jack Nicholas off Devonald.

But Neal Williams and Simon Cole put on 92 before before both fell in quick succession to spinner Andrew Pawlett, Williams for 53 (seven fours) and 'Snowy' having made 49 (six fours).

Iwan Izzard pushed things on though by hammering 59 in just 44 balls, including six sixes and three fours, and Dan Cherry made 28 before they too were dismissed by Pawlett to leave matters at 221-5.

From there Cresselly managed to lose 10 wickets for five runs, Devonald getting rid of Alex Bayley (10) before Pawlett sealed a five-for with Tom Murphy's wicket.

And from the first three balls of the 43rd over Devonald cleaned up - having Ryan Lewis (7) caught by Jordan Milich before clean bowling Sam Harts and Josh Lewis - and the two extra overs Tish had to bat would later prove crucial.

And yet the visitors were in trouble early in there chase as Murphy removed Peter Bradshaw (6), before a counter attack from fellow opener Danny Richards saw him blast 43 with six fours and a six.

He holed out to Cole off Murphy but from 60-2 Tish kept building, Harry Nicholas joined by captain Cockburn in a 103 run stand before the youngster was bowled by Ryan Lewis was 35.

Tish still needed 69 more to win but then came Devonald's blast, cracking 32 of his 48 not out in boundaries while at the other end, Cockburn worked his way to 86 (10 fours and a six) when with just two needed, he was skittled by Tom Arthur going for the big shot to win it.

But from the first ball of the second extra over, Devonald ended matters with a boundary off Harts.
