Ken Morris Memorial Cup: Crymych (101-5) beat Cresselly 3rds (100-7) by 5 wickets

Tomos Lewis was the Crymych hero as his final ball boundary sealed a Ken Morris Cup win over Cresselly 3rds.

Chasing 101 to win, the visitors reached 97-5 before Lewis cracked James Goldsworthy’s final ball to the fence to settle an enthralling clash – and ensure Crymych tasted victory in their first ever game in the competition.

Cresselly’s total had been largely down to the late order hitting of Cory Hill – the No 8 hitting four fours in his 37 not out after Mike Venables (10), Steffan Jenkins (12) and Rhydian Rees (16) had all failed to push on after getting starts.

For Crymych, wickets fell to Ioan Davies (3-31), Alistair Davies (3-22), Rhodri Lewis (2-23), and Hedd Nicholas 1-16.

The away side then looked in trouble in their reply though, with Phil Cole taking three early wickets to leave them 15-3.

Daniel Jones (13) and Ioan Davies (18) kept their side in it though before Hill (1-26) and Goldsworthy (1-31) both struck to leave Crymych 55-5.

But it was then that Lewis and Alistair Davies took hold of things, the latter stroking two fours in his 16 not out as Crymych were left needing 13 runs off the final over.

And Lewis delivered them, cracking a boundary as he took nine off the first five balls, before again finding the fence from the final ball to finish on a match winning 24 not out (four fours).
