Grif­fiths the in­spi­ra­tion as Felin­foel claim dou­ble

Llanelli Star - - Soccer -

WITH the All Wales Sport Mid­week Cricket League ti­tle tro­phy al­ready on dis­play in the cabi­net, Felin­foel com­pleted the dou­ble when de­feat­ing Llan­gen­nech by seven wick­ets in the 16-overs-a-side Bowl fi­nal at Pon­tard­du­lais Cricket Club.

De­spite los­ing the prized wick­ets of An­drew Thomas, run out for 10, and Scott Davies, bowled by James Taube for five, with just 32 on the board in pur­suit of 89 all out, Ju­lian Grif­fiths (40no) and Tom Jones (34no) guided Felin­foel to glory with an un­bro­ken part­ner­ship of 58.

All-rounder Grif­fiths proved an in­spi­ra­tion for Felin­foel, ear­lier claim­ing 3-12 as the Llan­gen­nech bats­men strug­gled to make head­way. Only Dai Wil­liams (27), Chris Hickey (13) and Alan Warner (10) man­aged dou­ble fig­ures.

In the semi-fi­nal, Felin­foel were in­debted to a timely 34 not out from Rhys Har­ries in the three-wicket win at Pon­tard­du­lais.

After mak­ing a bright start in chas­ing 85-5, Felin­foel slipped from 28-0 to 36-4 and 56-5 be­fore Har­ries came to the res­cue.

The Felin­foel field­ing was also sharp, with Thomas run­ning out Pon­tard­du­lais opener Cameron Davey for 21. Iwan Rees lost his wicket in the same way for 15.

In the other semi-fi­nal, the bulk of the runs in a Llan­gen­nech score of 124-6 in the 42-run win at Dafen were con­trib­uted by Dai Wil­liams (30), James Taube (25) and Matthew Jones (25).

Jonathan Ran­dell took 3-17 for the home team.

Dafen were tum­bled out for 82, with only Gethin Long (35) and Tom Laven­der look­ing com­fort­able against a lively bowl­ing at­tack spear­headed by Chris Hickey (3-19).
