IT'S as you were in the chase for the North Wales Cricket League Premier Division title.

Both St Asaph and Menai Bridge achieved 14-1 weekend triumphs as the push for the championship hots up.

With three matches left to play, it's Menai Bridge who still maintain a six-point advantage.

St Asaph were close to gaining maximum points during their trip to Bangor.

Runs were initially hard to come by as the visitors reached the midway point of their innings on 59 for one.

Dan Evans (38), Mathew Ryan (21) and Nathanael Scott (16) made sure there were wickets in the bag for the second portion of the innings.

St Asaph did put their foot on the accelerator to eventually reach 214 for six by the conclusion of their 50 overs.

Leading the charge was Duncan Midgley, who top scored with 64 from 58 deliveries.

Jason Foulkes finished up unbeaten on 33 from 22 deliveries, while skipper Will Ryan struck 23.

When it was their turn to bat, Bangor lost early wickets during their chase.

There was no way back when they were reduced to 36 for five in the 17th over.

Mathew Haswell (32) and Nadeem Rehman (28) looked to spark a recovery, but in the end Bangor found themselves all out for 118 in the 43rd over.

Danny Ryan produced a brilliant display with the ball, claiming 5-15 in 8.1 overs.

He was well supported by Jack Griffiths (2-11) and Dan Evans (2-14).
