O'Grady defiant but a bridge too far

Carmel thrashed despite career-best knock

Mike O'Grady struck a career-best 35* as Carmel's Third XI suffered a 78-run loss to defending champions Menai Bridge.

Carmel's bowling attack performed admirably to dismiss Menai for 171 with 10 balls to spare.

Richard Collet (2-23) finished the pick of the attack while Luke Bodman (2-32) and Nathan Jones (2-31) also collected two wickets apiece.

Rohit Kaimal (1-14) and Connor Traynor (1-26) also snaffled one each for the visitors while Jones and Collett showed smart work in the field as they both claimed a run out.

Skipper Alun Davies (10) and O'Grady gave Carmel a solid start to the reply but once the former fell Carmel's batting crumbled.

Tarynor (12) showed some brief lower order resistance but it was defiant knock from stand-in wicketkeeper O'Grady that impressed.

The school teacher came in at No.3 and walked off, with Carmel all out for 93 in 27.4 overs, unbeaten having eclipsed the 29 he made against Pontblyddyn last season.
