White stars in controversial defeat

Two-run loss for First XI after last over incident

Nick White struck his maiden century for Carmel's First XI as they suffered a controversial two-run defeat to Pontblyddyn in their NWCL Division One clash.

The hosts won the toss at Alder Meadow and elected to bat, but looked in trouble at 71-5 after early wickets for Carmel pace duo Will Wallis (1-55) and Matt Nash (3-29).

However, Carmel were unable to press home the advantage as the spilled a number of catches and rattled up the extras which allowed Pont to post 203-9 from their 50 overs.

Jack Whitehouse (3-40) also bowled impressively while Ben Sim (1-30) and White (1-44) picked up one apiece.

Carmel looked in trouble at 31-3 but Aussie White held the innings together with a defiant and patient knock.

He shared important stands with Danny Owens (21) and Ben Sim (25*) before he went through the gears to reach three figures - the first Carmel centurion at First XI level since 2013.

The left-hander was dismissed with two balls to spare, having made 115 from 150 balls, with seven runs required for victory.

Wallis then sliced his first ball, and the match's penulitmate, over the wicket-keeper's head. It was palmed over the boundary on to the wall of the adjoining farm building by the Pont fielder at fine leg.

However, the home side's players claimed the ball had bounced within the boundary and a four was controversially awarded.

Wallis was then bowled off the last ball of the innings as Carmel agonisingly fell three runs short of victory.
