CAREW held off a strong chase from St Ishmaels to seal their fourth win of the season on Saturday (Jun 11).
Tish won the toss and chose to field but they saw Carew amass 263-7 from their 45 overs.
Carew lost Rhys Davies and Tim Hicks (23) early on, both to Jonathan Pawlett, as they fell to 47-2 but Ian Sefton and Lewis Hicks shared 118 runs for the third wicket.
Both reached their half centuries but their partnership was eventually broken by Phil Llewellyn.
Hicks had hit five fours and a six in his score of 53 but he was then caught by Brennan Devonald.
Sefton had hit 11 fours in his score of 63 but he was then trapped leg before by Andrew Williams to make the score 168-4.
Shaun Whitfield and Nick Davies added another 33 runs fore the fifth wicket. Whitfield only faced 11 balls but he hit a four and two sixes to reach a score of 20 before being caught by Devonald off the bowling of Williams.
Luke Hicks joined Davies in the middle and they continued to put runs on the board with a sixth-wicket stand of 52.
Hicks hit two fours and a six in his score of 19 from 11 balls but he was run out by Jonathan Pawlett.
Davies hit three fours and two sixes in his score of 49 and was unlucky to miss out on a half century as he was bowled by Devonald.
That meant that Tish would need 264 to win the game and although they lost Phil Llewellyn early in their reply, caught by Rhys Davies off the bowling of Sam Harts, they responded well.
Peter Bradshaw and Karl Rhead shared 76 runs for the second wicket. Rhead hit five fours and a six in his score of 38 but he was bowled by Sion Jenkins.
Andrew Williams came in and scored 28 but he was caught by Tim Hicks off the bowling of Shaun Whitfield.
Soon after, Brennan Devonald was bowled by Jenkins as Tish slipped to 101-4.
Bradshaw and Phil Cockburn shared 28 runs for the fifth wicket but Rhys Davies caught and bowled Bradshaw on a score fo 38.
Cockburn and Jonathan Pawlett then added another 43 runs for the sixth wicket as they looked to keep their side in the game.
Cockburn hit five fours in his score of 32 but he was then bowled by James Hinchliffe.
Jonathan Pawlett was joined by Andrew Pawlett and the pair finished unbeaten but they had been left with too much to do as they fell 50 runs short of their target.
Andrew was unbeaten on 12 while Jonathan hit seven fours to finish not out on 48.
On Saturday, June 18, Carew host Llangwm while St Ishmaels travel to Saundersfoot.
