SKEWERS gained revenge for two heavy defeats by Lamb Inn this season as they beat them 5-3 in the semi-final of the Bernard Cornish Cup on Sunday.
Skewers took an early 2-0 lead, but by half-time the Lamb Inn had drawn level.
Skewers were on fire in the second half and thanks to braces from Steven Bean and Matt Osborne and Brett Denham’s single won the tie.
The result ended a run of eight wins for Lamb Inn and gave Skewers a hat-trick of successive win.
In the other semi-final, Basingstoke and District Division Two Chineham hosted Division Three side North Warnborough Two.

Late on in the second-half the underdogs equalised then Chineham’s Finlay Thompson hit the winner on a breakaway.
