FELINFOEL have been crowned champions of the Midweek League despite a 31 run defeat to Llangennech on Wednesday (Aug 8) at Felinfoel Park.

Batting first, the visitors finished on 138 for 8 off their 20 overs with James Taube and Harri Stephens both top scoring with 35. Tom Jones was the pick of the bowlers with 2 wickets for 13 runs off his 4 over spell.

Needing 139 runs to win, it was a good start for the home side with Julian Griffiths hitting a fast fire 34 which included 7 fours.

However a fall of wickets saw Foel all out for 107 in the 19th over. Bav Patel took 3 wickets for 26 runs off his 4 over spell.

Despite the loss, Felinfoel finish top of the league, with Dafen and Pontarddulais taking 2nd and 3rd spot respectively.

The win was enough for Llangennech to finish in the top 4 and secure a Midweek Bowl semi-final play off match against Dafen next Wednesday (Aug 15).
