Helston earned their second win of their Premier League campaign at Beacon Parc on Saturday with a 30 run success over Hayle.

Despite a bit of drizzle around they elected to bat and got off to a good start with Dan Jenkin and Karl Leathley putting on 43 for the first wicket before Leathley was bowled by James Franklin for 12.

Tommy Sturgess, in the side for the first time since the beginning of the month at Werrington, batted at three and added 38 for the second wicket with Jenkin.

The partnership ended when Jenkin was caught off Richard Hall for 47, having hit nine boundaries off 64 balls.

Sturgess followed soon after for 23, with Franklin getting his second wicket. Chris Martin hit a breezy 22 that included five boundaries before being caught behind off Giles Lawrence.

Guy Leathley only lasted seven balls before Dan Lello also had him caught behind.

At 123-5 a rebuild was required and it came thanks to overseas player Eden Koekemoer, who went on to make 46 before becoming one of four victims for keeper Charl Van Niekerk. Gavin Tregenza was caught behind for eight.

There was a sting in the tail however as Steve Jenkin made a very valuable 41 before being run out by Paul Lello off the final ball of the innings.

He hit the third six in the innings; following the efforts of Sturgess and Koekemoer. Lawrence ended with four for 35 and Franklin two for 50.

The Hayle reply began well with Johan Maritz and Steve Richards adding 78 for the first wicket. It ended when Richards was lbw to Steve Eddy for 20. Maritz followed to Tregenza having reached his fifty. He hit seven boundaries.

The Hayle middle order faltered with wickets falling including Paul Lello for 16.

Soon after Tony Riggall was run out for 51 at 176-6.

Lawrence was caught and bowled by Sturgess as the innings petered out. Koekemoer and Tregenza took two wickets each with the later only conceding 19 runs in eight overs. Helston have home advantage again this weekend with Grampound Road the visitors.

During the week Beacon Parc successfully staged a Bradley’s Vinter Cup semi-final Penzance beat Camborne by 74 runs after making 157-6 with Greg Smith making 73. The final against Falmouth is at Camborne on Wednesday 12 July at 6pm.
