ONLY three weeks ago Cresselly were flying high at the top of division one, however the Doves now sit sixth after another defeat, this time at the claws of Carew.

In a high scoring affair, Carew put Cresselly into bat, the Doves making 267-7 before the Rooks walked in and stole thunder making 270-6 to win by 4 wickets.

The Rooks arguably had the performance of the weekend, by Tim Hicks who made 85 as well as taking 2 wickets.

The race for the title looks like it is going to be a two way battle between defending champions Neyland and Lawrenny.

Neyland made light work of St Ishmaels putting the Tish into bat and bowling them out for 94. It took the loss of just one wicket for Neyland to reach their target of 95.

Lawrenny thrashed Llechryd by 161 runs. Llechryd made the unwise decision of putting Lawrenny into bat and the side that is currently sitting a point ahead of Neyland in the division, smashed it out the park making 247-9. Llechryd's reply was that of a whimper, making 86ao.

There were some outrageous scores in the match, Kurtis Marsh making 93 and bowling stats which included Ryan Morton taking 6-9, and David Dunfee and Dafydd Lewis taking 4-45 and 4-21 for Llechryd.
