Unbeaten Llechryd of the Pembroke County Cricket League Division Two were held to a draw for the second week in succession, but once again banked a hatful of points to maintain a promotion push.

The title race has already developed into a three-horse race between leaders Narberth, the Teifisiders and third in the table Hook.

As it stands John Curran and team-mates are five points behind the pacesetters and more importantly 19 ahead of Hook with the fourth club Pembroke a further 39 adrift and the latter visit the RDM Oval this Saturday.

Llechryd just failed to winkle out the last three Haverfordwest 2nds batmen but a draw earned the visitors 28 points.

As Curran and Co posted 206-6 hugely experienced left-hander Steve Smith stole the limelight with a delightful innings of 50 which included eight boundaries.

He was given support from Joe Mansfield (42), opener James Betterley (39), Rhys Beard (31) and Jonny Lewis (18).

Lewis Rhead picked up three wickets for the homesters.

Haverfordwest held out for a draw as Evan Watts and Filgi Varghese both contributed 34 and Nigel Morgan weighed in with 30.

James Betterley snapped three wickets for 29 runs and there were two wickets for skipper Curran.

Having been put in, Saundersfoot 2nds posted 155-5 against Llechryd 2nds at the RDM Oval, thanks mainly to Steve Cook who carried his bat for 77 runs.

Medium-pacer Tom Beard returned figures of 3-29.

Chasing down the total Ollie Roberts was again in brilliant form as he made 101 not out, which included 13 boundaries and as the target was reached for the loss of one wicket Andrew Fletcher was unbeaten on 25. The Teifi Valley side banked 27 points.

In the same division leaders Neyland 2nds won by nine wickets against visitors Crymych who were dismissed for 64 as medium pace bowler Kerian Allen snapped six wickets for 11 runs.

The pacesetters picked up a maximum haul of 30 points and there were two points for the Preselimen.
