THE wet weekend weather couldn't save Corwen from slipping to defeat.

Their latest Division Two contest was at home to Halkyn on Saturday.

It was the Flintshire side who were on top throughout the contest to gather a maximum 15 points.

The visitors won the pre-match toss and they invited Corwen to make first use of the War Memorial Park batting track.

There was a testing 27.4 overs at the crease for Corwen, with runs extremely hard to come by.

Skipper and opener Kevin Sharp (14) was the only home batsman to reach double figures, with Nathan Aldridge (6) the next highest scorer.

Other Corwen batsmen only managed to add three runs to the team total, with six players being dismissed for ducks.

Halkyn's bowlers sent down an amazing 19 maidens during the early portion of the afternoon and none of them conceded more than two runs an over.

Alex North finished up with a brilliant 4-1 return from his 3.4 overs, while Ben Roberts claimed 4-17 in 10 overs.

Graeme Settle and Gareth Thomas sent down 14 overs between them and they conceded just five runs, finishing up with figures of 1-3 and 1-2 respectively.

There was no drama when it was Halkyn's turn to respond and they eased to victory in just 6.1 overs.

Ben Roberts (16 not out) and Simon Penney (nine not out) safely saw them through to 31-0.
