IT'S now the halfway point of the cricket season... and Denbigh are still to experience a defeat.

The North Wales Cricket League Division One leaders made it 11 wins from 11 matches courtesy of their thumping 105-run success at home to Connah's Quay.

It was Denbigh skipper Tom Schrimshaw who called correctly at the pre-match toss and his message back to the changing room was for the opening batsmen to don their pads.

Despite the wet weather around, Denbigh's innings still realised 45 overs as they reached an imposing 241 for nine.

Leading the way for the hosts was Archie Sussex with his knock of 63, with great support arriving from the likes of Stuart Griffiths (37 from 22 deliveries), Darren Nixon (31) and Sam Lewis (26).

Lee Davies (3-53) was the visitors' top bowler, while Connah's Quay never seriously threatened to gain a victory when it was their turn to bat.

They were bowled out for 136 in the 29th over.

Mali Auty (31) and Josh Clarke (27) were the main scorers, while Ifan Jones (3-15) and Josh Jones (3-37) impressed with the ball.

Also among the wickets were Alec Lewis (2-13) and Sam Lewis (2-41) as Denbigh achieved maximum points.
