PONTBLYDDYN will feel a bit hard done by after putting up a real fight in the only top flight game to go the full distance.

Fighting to stave off relegation, Pont looked well set at 130 for three to chase down Pwllheli’s 188.

But not for the first time this season, Pont ended up losing a game they should have really won, picking up just three points for their efforts - the same number their Premier Division relegation rivals, Brymbo and Connah’s Quay gained for not even playing.

But they do remain eight points clear of second-from-bottom Brymbo with seven games of the season left to go.

Opting to bat first, the hosts were going well with captain Morgan Murray-Williams (57) and Lawrance Barraclough (34) top scoring.

But Aled Roberts, coming on as third change bowler, took 4-44 from 10.5 overs to put Point in with a chance.

And with Gethin Thomas and Jonathan Byrd putting on 77 to take Pont to 130 for three, victory looked a certainty. But Byrd went for 52 and Thomas 64 leaving Pont needing 32 from the last eight overs.

The tail collapsed with the final four batsmen only adding four runs between them as Roberts, Harry Williams and Richard Williams were all out for ducks. Captain Murray-Williams took 4-24 but it was Tristan Coetzee who turned the game, finishing with 5-39 as Pont perished for 161.

Llandudno and second-placed Menai Bridge gave it a go on the coast but their game lasted only 38 overs with the hosts struggling on 114 for five.

Denbigh - and Alec Lewis in particular - were doing well at Mochdre where the hosts were struggling at 86 for six.

Lewis had taken 4-29 before play was abandoned after 29 overs.

Jake James starred for Gwersyllt Park in a rain-reduced match at Llanrwst in Division One.

James took 4-41 as the hosts were bowled out for 168, Michael Griffiths also taking 2-41.

Park, who are now fourth, were set a revised target of 94 from 20 overs and James blasted 10 fours in his 52 to push his side to 95 for three in 12.2 overs.

The weather was the big winner in the Cheshire County League where all six top-flight games were called off.

All teams were handed seven points meaning Chester Boughton Hall’s lead over Premier Division title rivals, Alderley Edge, is still 30 points heading into the final seven games of the season.

Hall did get a win in the Liverpool Knockout on Thursday as Alex Money starred in a 63 run third round win at Upton.

Money (pictured left) hit 75 not out as he shared a 143-run fourth wicket partnership with Jamie Crawley, who ended unbeaten on 69.

Hall’s 184 for three from 20 overs was going to take some beating and Upton struggled to 121 for seven at the close. Man of the match Money took 2-16 and Harry Killoran landed 2-25.

Hall Seconds’ away game at Neston was canned as were the two Division Two derby dates between Christleton and Tattenhall, and Alvanley against Barrow.

Chirk’s Division Two title charge was halted by the rain as their game at Albrighton was cancelled and it was the same for Northop Hall in the Liverpool Competition.
