Division 1: Carew (240-5) beat Lawrenny (179 all out) by 61 runs

Carew continued their rampant start to life back in Division 1 as they racked up too many runs for Lawrenny.

The Rooks batted first and racked up a huge 240-5, with Tom Davies (53) and Ian Sefton (47) both continuing their good form from the win at Llangwm the previous week.

But it was Tim Hicks who lit up the innings with a boundary laden 87, while Tom Davies also made 28 as Ryan Morton (1-51), Harry Thomas (1-48), and Brad McDermott-Jenkins (1-66) did their best to keep things in check for the visitors.

But Joe Kidney’s side fell 61 runs short in their reply as Tom Davies and spinner Ceri Brace shared eight wickets between them. Davies took 4-38 and Brace 4-56, with James Hinchcliffe helping finish the job with 2-44.

That was despite Harry Thomas backing up his century in week one with 55, while Brad-McDermott blazed his way to a quick 33, but those two couldn’t get the support they needed despite starts for James Phillips (16), Steve Campbell (15), and James Skeels (15).

The win leaves Carew top after just two games ahead of a trip to Oatfield Park to play Burton. Lawrenny meanwhile, will look to bounce back at home to Saundersfoot.
