It's Brixham v Paignton in Brockman Cup final

PAIGNTON are into the final of the Brockman Cup following an eight-wicket win over Ipplepen in the Friday night semi at Torquay Recreation Ground.

   It was a close-run thing though as Paignton only had four balls to spare when they passed the Pens’ impressive total of 171 for eight in the 20-over competition.

   Chris Partridge (30), Sam Wakeham (29) and Jonny Ranjit (24) were the leading run getters when Pens batted.

   Liam Talbot (38) gave Paignton a solid start then George Benton (86no) and Tom Field (31no) kept the chase going.

   The target was down to five off last over, which was never going to be an issue with a short boundary on one side.

   Paignton will play either Barton or Brixham, who meet at Torquay tonight (Tuesday) in the second semi-final.

   Ipplepen 171-8 (C Partridge 30,S Wakeham 29,J Ranjit 24; M Williams 2-34,T Field 2-36), Paignton 175-2 (G Benton 86no,L Talbot 38,T Field 31no). Paignton bt Ipplepen by 8 wkts.


BRIXHAM reserved their place in the Brockman Cup final after getting home by nine runs in a close-run game against Barton.

   An early burst by Barton seamer Stuart Bowker (4-18) had Brixham on the back foot as George Northcott and Wes Fowler departed without troubling the scorers.

   A fifth-wicket stand of 61 between Tim Robinson and Adam Edwards helped Brixham to respectable 133 for six in their 20 overs.

   Luke Adderley (39no) and Alex Hunt gave Barton a solid base before the latter was runout.

   A fourth-wicket stand of 63 between Adderley and Adam Last (42) gave the innings more momentum.

   Once Last departed the innings subsided and 18 to win off the last over proved too many.

   The final takes place at Torquay Recreation Ground this Friday (July 2).

   Brixham 133-6 (A Edwards 47no, T Robinson 29; S Bowker 4-18), Barton 124-6 (A Last 42, L Adderley 39no, A Hunt 22; C Barron 3-19). Brixham bt Barton by 9 runs.
