Division 1: Neyland (179-7) beat Haverfordwest (93 all out)

Opener Nick Koomen hit 82 as Neyland outplayed Haverfordwest at The Racecourse - and opened up a 41 point lead in the title race in the process.

Despite the rain of the previous week Sean Hannon opted to bat and his side had a tricky start as Archie Thomas bowled Patrick Bellerby.

But Koomen and Ashley Sutton put on 51 before the latter was LBW to Simon Holliday for 17, and the opener was eventually fifth man out when he was trapped before by Clive Tucker having hit nine fours.

And at 147-5 it was Nathan Banner who then added late impetus, cracking three sixes in his 35 not out to take Neyand to 179-7.

For The Town, Archie Thomas was the pick of the bowlers with 3-38 in 11 overs.

Disaster then struck early for Danny Potter's team in their reply when Simon Holliday had to retire with injury, and they then fell from 24-0 to 46-5 as only opener Mike Jones got a start before falling to Nathan Banner for 15.

There was a brief revival with a stand of 29 from Jake Merry and Thomas, with Merry making a patient 29 off 54 balls before being eighth man out.

And in the 43rd over the job was done for Neyland when Andrew Miller had Clive Tucker stumped by Sean Hannon, the keeper's third victim of the innings, to give him 2-24.

Tom Pritchard led the bowling figures though with 3-28 - and Hannon's side were left satisfied with a solid display that extends their lead at the top.
