Pembroke County Cricet Club Division 1: Whitland (171 for 3) beat Carew (168 all out) by 7 wickets

Jonathan Thomas starred as Whitland beat Carew to make it four games unbeaten, despite the batting heorics of Tom Davies.

Davies hit 102 (not out) of his side's 168 runs, but it wasn't enough to prevent a comfortable win for the Borderers as Thomas and skipper Matthew Davies got them over the line with eight overs, and seven wickets, to spare.

After being put into bat, Carew hit trouble at 124-8 as only Rhys Davies (18) made an impression alongside his cousin, but it was then the opener accelerated things with some big late hitting.

He cracked nine fours and three sixes as No 10 Tom Scourfield (10) hung around long enough to see him reach three figures.

For Whitland, wickets fell to Thomas (3-46), Wayne Howells (2-29), Davies (2-39) and Geraint Jones (1-23).

Spinner Ceri Brace (2-37) gave Carew hope as he removed openers Paul (43 - eight fours) and Adam Davies (11), and Tom Davies (1-40) dismissed the dangerous Geraint Jones (15) to leave Whitland 118-3.

But Thomas and his captain then shared an unbeaten stand of 55, with the No 4 making 60 not out with nine fours and two sixes.

Davies finished 20 not out as Whitland stayed sixth in the table, now just a place below The Rooks.
