Conor Kelly's blistering 83 saw Clontarf reach the Senior Cup final with an emphatic 87-run win over Pembroke in a contest reduced to just 22 overs per side at Sydney Parade.

Kelly smashed 8 fours and 6 sixes in a whirling 45-ball knock, as he dominated an opening stand of 103 in 11 overs with Bill Coghlan (25).

The Pembroke spinning quartet of Fiachra Tucker, Andy Balbirnie, JJ Garth and Paul Lawson came in for particularly severe punishment as their combined 8 overs went for 110.

The Clontarf boundary blitzkrieg claimed another casualty as the laptop doing the TCS scoring suffered a direct hit making it kaput!

Jack Balbirnie's introduction saw a mini collapse, as 103 for 0 became 125 for 4, dismissing Coghlan, Pienaar, Poynter and Waqar Azmat, as he took 4 for 22.

Bobbo Forrest clubbed 4 fours and 3 sixes in a quickfire 48 from 28 balls, dominating a 6th wicket stand of 54 with David Delany who made a run-a-ball 14 as Clontarf made an impressive 205 for 7.

The Pembroke chase never got going, as they lost early wickets to be 2 for 2, then slumping to 31 for 5 and 61 for 8 in what was shaping to be a batting display to forget.

JJ Garth gave the home side a little cheer as he hit 7 fours and a six in an even time 52 - his maiden senior half century.

It was all academic as the game as a contest was over at that stage - Clontarf rushing to ensure they got the requisite 20 overs completed in case of a further stoppage.

The 87-run margin was a substantial one and Clontarf stay in the hunt for all trophies as the season enters the final stages.

They will have to wait for their final opponents as the North County v Merrion clash fell foul of the elements.
