Griffiths smashes Dock through in Duggie Morris

A SPARKLING 67 from 25 balls from Jake Griffiths sent Pembroke Dock through to the second round of the Duggie Morris Cup on Tuesday night (May 14).

Opponents Hook had earlier posted 146-5 from their 20 overs with Jamie Phelps making his way to an excellent score of 61 from 47 balls.

Phelps and Holder got the visitors off to a good start as they shared 83 runs for the first wicket.

Phelps hit eight fours and two sixes in his knock but then hit the ball to Griffiths to give Nick Daley his first wicket.

Moments later he had a second as he had Holder caught by Craig Butland on a score of 18.

Craig Nutty and Brennan Martin then shared another 32 runs for the third wicket as they kept the scoreboard ticking over.

Martin hit three sixes in a score of 21 from only 7 balls but he was then caught and Nutty added 16 runs before he was bowled.

Bradley Flood was then run out as Hook slipped to 129-5. Aled Phelps finished not out on 16 from 15 balls to help his side to their total of 146-5.

Niall Brunton and Connor Carroll picked up the other two wickets for the Dock.

The Dock got off to a lightning start in their reply as Griffiths and Luke Murray smashed them to 76-0 off the first six overs.

Griffiths’ stunning knock included seven fours and five sixes but it was then brought to an end as he was caught by Aled Phelps off the bowling of Matthew Holder.

Murray and Billy Wood continued to add to their score as they shared 47 runs for the second wicket.

Murray hit four fours as he made 35 but he was also caught by Phelps off the bowling of Harry Makepeace.

Wood finished not out on 26 to see his side over the line and into the second round.

The Dock, sponsored by Market Tavern, will now play the winners of Thursday’s game between Lawrenny or St Ishmaels.

Tuesday’s other game saw Narberth go through after beating Kilgetty. Scores of 83 from Kyle Quartermaine and 67 not out from Jordan Howell helped them book a second round date with Haverfordwest.
