CAERNARFON remain in control of their North Wales Cricket League Division Four title destiny after securing an eight-wicket home win over Bethesda Seconds.

A well-balanced bowling performance restricted the visitors to 49 all out from 25 overs at the crease, with Ian Morgan and Barry Roberts both claiming three wickets apiece at the combined expense of 23 runs.

Another notable contribution came from Llyr Erddyn Davies, who made the most of his four-over spell to finish with figures of 2-4, and Monis Altaf helped himself to a pair of victims for the loss of 19 runs.

Cofis’ skipper Huw Erddyn Davies was the first home batsman to be removed when he was clean bowled by Nigel Rowlands for 16 off 35 deliveries, and Morgan was unable to match his performance with the ball thanks to an lbw decision at the hands of Dylan Hughes after the all-rounder made just one.

This concern was quashed due to an impressive display from wicketkeeper-opener Grant Peisley, who fired an unbeaten 32 from 31 balls as the hosts reached their required target for the loss of two wickets after 13 overs of play.

The result leaves Caernarfon nine points ahead of Conwy 2nds with three games remaining as they prepare for a trip to Ruthin 2nds on Saturday.
