Harrison-Allen Bowl Round 2: Narberth (132-2) beat Stackpole (128-6) by 8 wickets

An unbeaten half century for Kyle Quartermaine led Narberth to a comfortable win at Stackpole.

Chasing 129 to win, Quartermaine cracked six fours and a six as the hosts sealed matters with five overs to spare.

The visitors, playing their third competitive game in five days, started well as openers George Smith and Josh Davies put on 60, the partnership ending when Davies was bowled by Lewis Hough for 32 (four fours).

And from there Narberth took command, with Hough also skittling Richard Mackay for a duck in the same over in a spell of 2-4 in just two overs. Smith (23) fell in the same manner to Ben Hughes, and suddenly Stackpole were 62-3.

That became 66-4 when John Williams (4) was caught by Jordan Howell, also off Hughes (2-26), and it then took knocks of 24 from Lewys Gibby and 30 not out from James Adie, including a big six, to rescue the innings.

But Loui Davies bowled Gibby and Euan MacDonald (2) to take 2-37 and help restrict Stackpole to 128-6.

They were given some hope when Mackay struck to remove Had Luff (9), thanks to a smart catch by Adie, but then came a stand of 81 between opener Richie Adams and Quartermaine.

Adams made 43 (four fours) before being stumped by Owain Cox off Smith, and then in came Hough to smash 15 in just seven balls, including three straight fours in one MacDonald over, as Narberth set up a home quarter final with Haverfordwest next Saturday.
