Penzance and St Just will do battle in the Bond Timber Trophy League 1 final this weekend after both sides earned semi-final victories on Saturday.

It was a case of west beating east as Penzance enjoyed a victory by 21 runs at home to Wadebridge, while St Just earned a three-wicket win in tense circumstances at Werrington.

East group winners Werrington were bowled out for a reasonable 168 in the final over of their innings, with St Just successfully chasing that total down with just three balls remaining.

Werrington were hit by the early departure of Adam Hodgson for a duck after he was caught by Daniel Lello, but things soon improved as a 97-run stand between Adam Jenkin (23) and Ben Smeeth (69) got he home side back on track.

The pair got the hosts to the century before useful contributions from Matthew robins (16), Paul Smith (10) and Tom Dinnis (28) took Werrington further.

But the lower order fell cheaply as John Moon and Mark Gribble departed for ducks while Nick Lawson made 1, with the wicket of Tom Barnard (6) ending the innings three balls early.

St Just openers Gareth May (13) and Steve Kevern (15) fell fairly cheaply but the visitors had Lewis Goldsworthy to thank as the youngster, batting at three, hit 58 not out.

The middle order struggled to add useful runs but Philip Nicholas and Ben Ellis at seven and eight provided a combined 42 runs to take the visitors within a few runs of victory at the end of the 39th over, with a boundary from Goldsworthy securing the win in the first ball of the final over.

It will be an all-west Cornwall final after West group winners Penzance recorded victory at home to Wadebridge.

Things got off to a slightly shaky start with the early departures of Giles Lawrence (0) and Jack Paull (4), but that was soon forgotten as Christian Purchase hit an excellent 62 off 67 balls.

Much of those were scored alongside Thomas Wells (46), who continued his own scoring alongside Greg Smith (48) as the hosts headed towards 200, although a lower order collapse saw Penzance fall short at 191.

Charlie Ellis took 4-32 for Wadebridge.

Opening pair Matthew Joliffe (16) and Tom McLachlan (15) offered a moderate combined 31, but the departures of Matt Butler (1), James Turpin (1) and Kelvin Snell (6) for a combined eight runs put the away side in a concerning position at 54-6.

An excellent 65 off 71 balls from sixth batsman Callum Wilson rescued the innings somewhat, but the visitors were eventually dismissed for 170 – 22 runs shy of their target.

Giles Lawrence and Jonathan Ludlam took 3-16 and 3-35 respectively.
