Last night, Penn 2nd XI beat Milford Hall 2nd XI in the Semi-Final of the T20 Knockout Competition in spectacular fashion.
Penn posting a modest total of 115 off their allotted 20 overs.
In reply Milford started well but after a few quick wickets the runs started to dry up in the middle order. After some tight bowling and sharp fielding the overs whittled down with one over remaining, two wickets in hand and six runs to win. Two leg stump yorkers later and Penn were victorious.
A great team win with a sprinkling of individual performances march the 2’s onto ‘Finals Day’
Tonight we see the 3rd XI look to emulate the same success away at Pelsall.
