ST ISHMAELS booked their place in the quarter finals of the Duggie Morris Cup with a seven-wicket win over Kilgetty on Wednesday night (May 18).
Tish won the toss and chose to bowl first in tough conditions but they were able to bowl Kilgetty out for 104.
Kilgetty struggled early on and were reduced to 13-4 after three overs as Brennan Devonald claimed three wickets in four balls.
The visitors battled back well though and a score of 18 from Iori Badham and 46 not out from Ollie Gamble gave them something they could defend.
Devonald finished with excellent figures of 4-11 while Andrew Pawlett claimed 2-17 and Lewis Rhead also took two wickets.
Rhead then got Tish going with a score of 32 before he was sent back to the pavilion.
Devonald then finished not out on 17 and Philip Cockburn was unbeaten on 32 as Tish reached their target in the 17th over.
The win sets up a quarter final tie against the winners of the tie between Pembroke and Lamphey which is being played on Thursday, May 19, after being cancelled because of the rain on Tuesday.
The night’s other game between Pembroke Dock and holders Lawrenny was called off because of the rain and will be replayed on Thursday, May 19.
