South Woodford swept aside in last eight
Brentwood booked their place at the Dukes Essex T20 finals day with an emphatic quarter-final win over South Woodford at the Old County Ground.
Visiting captain Joe Craddock chose to bat after winning the toss and hit a six and a four before falling to Thomas Moore.
Jamie Carroll (24) added 47 for the second wicket with Kasey Harris (24), before both fell in quick succession to Charlie Griffiths and Rishi Patel.
Griffiths (2-24) also sent Michael Browne back to the pavilion, before slow left-armer Ian Belchamber (3-13) claimed the final three wickets as South Woodford closed on 118-9.
Patel fell for a first-ball duck in reply, caught by Harry Shirt off his own bowling, but Aaron West and Tom Oakley then added 100 for the second wicket.
West hit two sixes and seven fours in his 59 from 36 balls, before being dismissed by Haider Ali Syed Zaidi, while Oakley finished unbeaten on 53 from 36 balls, having hit a six and eight fours, as Brentwood clinched an eight-wicket win with seven overs to spare.
They join Upminster, Hornchurch and Wanstead in the semi-finals at Billericay on Sunday (July 16).
