A DISASTROUS weekend saw Mochdre CC lose four matches, including their glamorous T20 clash with Tamworth and a Premier Division match with basement boys Llay Welfare.
On Saturday, the firsts crashed to a six wicket defeat to the Premier League’s bottom side, putting their title challenge on the slide as Menai Bridge and Llandudno both notched up wins.
A lacklustre innings saw Sean McHale top score at number nine with 19, as Mochdre scored 130 all out in the 32.2 overs.
Marcus Adams took four wickets for 62 for the attack, but an unbeaten 92 run stand from Llay’s Jamie Beale guided his club to a vital victory.
The bad luck continued for the firsts on Sunday when Tamworth claimed the spoils in their T20 cup match. The midlands side put up 120 runs for seven wickets, but Mochdre could only manage 73.
Tamworth were in turn beaten by Neston in Sunday’s final, sending the Cheshire side through to the national quarter finals.
The second XI also slipped behind Conwy in the race for the Division Four title after losing to third placed Llangollen.
Now just four points adrift, Llan had Gareth Rigden to thank for an unbeaten 149 run knock, as they put up 264 for five from 45 overs.
The total proved too much for Mochdre though, as they ended up on a 148 all out.
To compound a miserable weekend, the thirds failed to raise a side for their match at Halkyn.
