CONWY were unable to cause a stir at the North Wales Cricket League Division One summit as they fell to a heavy ten-wicket home loss to leaders Pontblyddyn.

The basement dwellers were no match for their title chasing opponents, managing 111-9 from their 50 overs at the crease during a resolute display that brought with it little reward.

Opener Graham Heath top scored with a knock of 21, with only Robert Gater (16), Stan Senior (14), Martin Watford (18) and Glyn Meredith (10*) producing scores of note in the face of stern pressure.

George Forgrave and Edward Jones were the standout performers with the ball for the visitors, claiming eight out of the nine taken wickets at a total cost of 48 runs.

The visitors reached their required target with little fuss thanks in no small part to an outstanding knock from opener Alistair Roberts, with showed his class with 12 boundaries on his way to an unbeaten 73.

Opening partner Ben Mason was there with him from start-to-finish and ended the innings on 23 not out as the visitors secured victory after 23 overs in the middle.

Conwy will be hoping for better fortune this weekend when they welcome Llanrwst on Saturday.
