There were 'captain's knocks' from Richard Mackay and Sam Kurtz last night as Stackpole and Crymych made the Allan Brown Cup semi finals.

Johnston (125 all out) lost to Stackpole (176-6) by 51 runs

A brutal 71 not out from Stackpole's stand in skipper Richard Mackay proved the difference as they made the Allan Brown semi finals at the expense of Johnston.

Mackay led the side to the final last year, but last night was filling in for the absent Simon Bevan and hit 71 not out in a total of 176-6. This came after a flurry of late boundaries which saw him finish with five fours and four sixes to his name.

Stackpole had been restricted to 61-4 despite an early assault from opener John Williams as he cracked 32, but it was then that Mackay got going as he shared a stand of 59 with Ewan MacDonald - who made a useful 26.

Johnston wickets were shared between Curtis (2-5) and Mark Hicks (1-35), Hazif Farooq (1-13), and Lewis Boswell (2-49), but even with the short boundaries at Glebelands the total looked an imposing one to chase.

And so it proved as Geno Cleal (4) fell early to Paul Oeppen, and although opening partner Chris Goodridge made 20 - wickets fell regularly from there on in.

Farooq made 10 and Curtis Hicks was the only other batsman in double figures with three fours in his 19, but although the visitors wastefully conceded 42 in extras, Mackay completed a good individual display with 3-17. Lewys Gibby also did big damage in his two over spell, taking 3-8.

Marcus Adie (1-17), George Smith (1-10), Oeppen (1-24) and Ewan MacDonald (1-22) all helped round things off as the visitors won with 51 runs to spare.

Tonight, Stackpole will go to Laugharne for their final four game.

Crymych (132-3) beat Hundleton (74-7) by 58 runs

Sam Kurtz smashed 87 as Crymych set up a semi final with cup holders Llanrhian tonight.

On their new pitch at Ysgol Y Preseli, the hosts posted 132-3 as Kurtz took command, backed up by Osian Wyn who played the foil with 20 not out.

For Hundleton, Ben Adams (1-42), Stef Williams (1-12) and Chris Stapleton (1-24) took wickets.

And the visitors couldn't get close in their reply, despite decent cameos from Paul Fox (24) and Jonathan Williams (25).

The home attack kept the scoring rate in check though, with Wyn (1-14), Dan Griffiths (2-13), Ioan Davies (2-9), Dan James (1-16) and Alastair Davies (1-6) sharing wickets.
