Bridgwater beat Taunton St Andrews to bag Somerset Cup semi finals
5:30pm Monday 16th July 2012 in Sport
IN a 20-over thriller at The Parks, Bridgwater, needing three to win off the last ball, scraped home courtesy of a last ball boundary from Chris Skidmore.
Excellent knocks from Steve Jenkins (59) and Lloyd Alley (31) had set up a formidable Saints score on a blustery, showery evening.
Mike Coles and Andy Hallaran got their team off to a flyer but, despite excellent spells from Josh Clatworthy (3-27) and Mike Parsons (2-27), the home side’s consistent batting – especially in the middle order with Stef Jones (34) and Ian Bishop (26) hitting out – scored 70 off the last seven overs, to set up the last ball win.
They now play Ilminster at The Parks on Friday in the semi-final.
