NORTH WALES CRICKET LEAGUE DIVISION THREE
Buckley 2nd XI (14) 162-3 Pontblyddyn 2nd XI (1) 160-8
Buckley seconds must have been overjoyed to become the first team this season to beat Division Three leaders Pontblyddyn seconds.
And Bucks ended Pont’s 100 percent record of six straight wins in some style.
Youngster Ollie Fellows was the star turn for the hosts with a senior career best 91.
Pont won the toss and elected to bat, posting 160-8 off 40 overs, opener and skipper Richard Davies hitting 54, John Coppack 34 and Gethin Thomas 32.
Samuel Jones was Buckley’s most successful bowler with 3-14.
In reply, opening pair Fellows (91 not out) and Gary Mayers (52) took Bucks a long way towards victory.
The hosts finished on 162-3 off 32.3 overs for a 14-1 points win, Coppack 2-23 for the visitors.
It was a good day for the Mayers family with dad Gary making a half-ton, one daughter Holly dismissed Pont’s leading scorer Davies caught and bowled, and another daughter, Abbey, ran out Coppack.

Connah’s Quay 2nd XI (12) 151-7 Bethesda 2nd XI (3) 149-10
Andy Tilley’s 5-22 and 62 from opener Rhys Ryder did most to ensure Connah’s Quay 2nds overcame the challenge of Bethesda 2nds at Central Park.
Pesda won the toss and decided to bat, setting a modest total of 149 all out, Jez Shea 42, while Tilley’s five-for stood out, Sajad Mukhtarzai taking a useful 2-27.
Ryder’s half-ton was well supported by Aaron Pearson (33) as the Quay made it to 151-7, having slumped from 103-2 to 125-7 at one stage before Jack Griffiths (13 no) and Tilley (10 no) guided the ship into dock.
