Felinfoel suffer defeat



FELINFOEL suffered defeat on Saturday (Jun 29) as they were beaten by six wickets by second placed Maesteg.

Maesteg won the toss and elected to field and that looked that to be a good decision as they were able to bowl Felinfoel out for 128.

Openers Stuart Parmenter and Andrew Thomas had made a good start for the home side as they shared an opening stand of 56 runs.

Parmenter hit five fours in a score of 32 but he was then stumped off the bowling of Martin Wilkshire.

Thomas hit four fours in a score of 31 but he was then caught by Luke Whelan off the bowling of Ewan Lambert.

Lambert then bowled Julian Griffiths and Rhys Jones in quick succession before Tom Jones was caught off the bowling of Chris Hicks.

That left Felinfoel on 85-5 and it soon became 94-6 as Jonathan Cheal was trapped leg before by Jeffrey Watkin.

Rohan Nangalia made a score of 18 but he was also out to the bowling of Watkin as wickets continued to fall.

Josh Powell was next to fall when he was also caught off the bowling of Watkin and Wilkshire then bowled Johnathan Evans.

Anthony Mathias finished not out on 11 after Lambert claimed his fourth wicket when he had Stephen Jones caught.

That meant that Maesteg would need 129 to win but Felinfoel did their best to try and defend their total.

Anthony Mathias bowled Jonathan Hood for a duck and Stuart Parmenter then had Andrew Whelan caught by Andrew Thomas on a score of 26.

That made the score 43-2 but Ashley Colston and Michael Lambert shared 48 runs for the third wicket.

Lambert made 22 but he was then caught by Jonathan Evans off the bowling of Rohan Nangalia.

Colston hit seven fours in a score of 44 but he was caught by Jonathan Cheal off the bowling of Tom Jones. That made the score 95-4 but Felinfoel were unable to take any further wickets.

Kurt Vincent and Martin Wilkshire finished unbeaten on scores of 18 and 14 respectively as they guided Maesteg home with plenty of time to spare.
