In reply, Carew II struggled to build any momentum, eventually being bowled out for 129.  Corey Hall top-scored with 40, and was supported by Logan Hall (20) and Haydn Shapcott (21) but nobody was able to kick on and make it a competitive chase. The standout bowling performance came from Dan Ridge, who dismantled Carew II's batting line-up, claiming 5 wickets for just 12 runs.

Lamphey vs Hook

Hook's batting line-up put on a spectacular show to overpower Lamphey by a whopping 165 runs. Hook posted an imposing total of 251 for 9 in their allotted overs. Jake Wicks was the star of the innings with an unbeaten 97, ably supported by Seth Willington (39) and valuable contributions from the middle order. Lamphey's bowlers, Grant Cole (2-12) and L Silver (4-35), managed to take wickets but couldn't stem the run flow.

In response, Lamphey's batting faltered against a disciplined Hook bowling attack. Owen Phelps (4-18) and Jack Phillips (3-9) were the pick of the bowlers, leading to Lamphey being skittled out for a mere 86 runs. David Dredge top-scored with 46, but it wasn't enough to challenge the huge total set by Hook.

Llanrhian vs Herbrandston

Herbrandston displayed a clinical performance to secure an 8-wicket win over Llanrhian. Batting first, Llanrhian could only muster 93 runs, with Paul Lewis (19) and Jack Jones (18) being the main contributors. Herbrandston's Paul Nicholas did most of the damage with the ball taking an impressive 5 for 20. Morgan Britton (2-12) and Charlie Malloy (2-18) provided valuable support.

Chasing a modest target, Herbrandston reached 95 for 2, courtesy of unbeaten knocks from Harry Nicholas (31 not out) and Ryan Davies (26 not out). The bowling efforts of Anthony Couzens (1-25) and Daf Williams (1-17) were in vain as Herbrandston cruised to victory.

Pembroke vs Johnston

In one of the most exciting matches of the day, Pembroke secured a 25-run win over Johnston. Pembroke's batting line-up fired on all cylinders, posting an imposing total of 269 for 4. Johnston fought valiantly but fell short, reaching 244.

Jack Harries led the way for Pembroke as the opener made 120 and was well supported by Phil Hay who himself made 69, before Phil Jones and Andrew Hay added a useful 35 and 28 respectively, which made Pembroke set Johnston 270 to win. One man held the key to this chase, opener Lee Summons who again made an outstanding 109 supported once again by regular run scoring partner these days Lewis Boswell who made a excellent 89. However nobody else managed double figures in the chase which was their downfall in the end as they ended 25 runs short. A thrilling game and a great advert for the second division.
