Laugharne (85-9) lost to St Ishmaels (91-4) by 6 wickets

St Ishmaels went safely into the quarter finals by negotiating a tricky tie at Laugharne.

They notched a six-wicket win having restricted the home side to 85- and although losing four wickets took only 13.2 overs to reach their target.

Only Andrew Edwards (19) and Craig Hurst (12 not out) managed to stay long as Andrew Pawlett’s slow stuff tormented them so that he returned excellent figures of 4-13 alongside his cousin Jonathan (2-14), Jordan Milich (1-16) and Sean Williams (1-12).

Then Peter Bradshaw gave solidity to the Tish response with his 31 runs – and he found support from Brennan Devonald (18) and Sean Williams (13).

Sean Lynch (1 for 15), James Ingleton (1 for 21) and Tudor Reynolds (1-38) were the Laugharne wicket-takers but their batting total meant they had little margin to work with in the field.
