ST HELENS Town remain top of the Liverpool competition Second Division after a 95-run victory over Hightown.

Town won the toss and elected to bat but early setbacks saw them reduced to 12-2 before a partnership of 55 between Roberts and Woods took the score to 67-3.

The pair didn't last much longer as they were both dismissed with only 10 more runs on the board with the score 77-5 and Town struggling.

A partnership between Fisher and Mcnicholas was needed and that's what they produced as they piled on the runs to take the score to 130-6, Mcnicholas out for 22 and Fisher still going well.

St Helens continued to churn out the runs and eventually reached 190-8 declared, Matty Fisher finishing 56 not out.

In reply with the ball it was slow going early on for Town and luck was hard to come by but tight bowling eventually saw the breakthroughs come as Hightown fell to 45-3.

Fisher then continued his brilliant day this time with the ball as he came into the attack and took five quick wickets with his tidy off spin and the away side eventually slumped to 95 all out.

The second team also won with a 50-run victory over Rainford.
