Five star performance from Davies
Emyr Davies cracks a career-best 63 against Mochdre as Third XI make it five consecutive wins
Carmel's Third XI continued their strong finish to the NWCL season with a 50-run win over Mochdre thanks to a career-best knock by Emyr Davies.
The visitors won the toss and after openers Matthew Isgar (0) and Ben Sim (8) departed cheaply it was Davies who rebuilt the innings.
In a mature knock of 63 - the highest score of his Carmel career - Davies bettered his 50* on the same ground playing for the Old Boys XI.
It was also the Liverpool University student's maiden half-century in the NWCL as he shared a lengthy stand with Daniel Sim (62) for the third wicket.
Connor Traynor (17*) and Dafydd Bailey (10) also made some valuable lower order runs as Carmel posted 205-7 from their 40 overs.
Ben Sim and Richard Collett both struck early on after the tea interval but Mochdre fought back to the frustration of the visiting attack.
However, the off-spin of Greg Mostyn proved decisive in swinging the game back in Carmel's favour.
His five-over spell yielded 3-34 and included three key batsmen in the home side's middle order while the younger Sim also claimed a run out.
Collett (2-18) and Ben Sim (2-17) both returned to collect wickets along with Dan Sim (1-24) before Davies (1-1) had the last word as the hosts were bowled out for 155 in 35.4 overs.
