DOLGELLAU turned on the style to secure an eye-catching 99-run victory at Carmel and District.

The North Wales Cricket League Division One side managed to set a target of 148-9 from their allotted 50 overs at the crease, with Sion Francis producing a fine knock from the opening batsman position before he was caught off a Ben Sim delivery after making 43.

Other scores of note came from Jonathan Lloyd and Tom Kistruck, who made 26 and 37 respectively, with Oliver Saynor the pick of the visiting bowlers thanks to figures of 3-37.

Phil Leeds got the away side off to a flyer with the new ball by disposing of opening batsmen Dafydd Bailey (3) and Derek Johnson (0) in quick succession, and the same bowler also took out the dangerous Ryan Roberts for just two runs to end his spell on 3-6.

He was aided at the other end by Jaco Oosthuizen, who claimed the wickets of Jack Whitehouse and Saynor for a duck apiece, and Jack Williamson also gave his side a boost with the scalps of Gwion Dafydd (15) and Nick Hughes to seal figures of 2-14.

Another highlight was a superb run out by Marcus Cheyne to get rid of skipper Barry McGauty for three as the hosts was skittled for 49 in reply.
