Kendal reach Furness Building Society Cup Final

By Michael Latham

Terry Hunte was Kendal's hero at Blackpool

Kendal reached the final of the Furness Building Society Cup by defeating Blackpool by 50 runs at Stanley Park.
Shap Road legend Terry Hunte rolled back the years with an undefeated 80 off 79 balls in Kendal's 180 for 2 off their 40 overs.
Hunte added an unbroken 106 for the third wicket with professional and captain Ross McMillan who finished 52 not out.

Blackpool were restricted to 130 for 9 in reply with Richard Gleeson top-scoring with an undefeated 26 and Andy Furniss making 24 before he was run out.
Nick Lewthwaite took three for 19 for Kendal and Alan Dugdale two for 26 while Kevin Howarth bowled four overs and finished with the extraordinary analysis of one for 2.
Ben Simm accounted for the Blackpool sub-pro Jeeva Kulatunga, who made a century for the club against Darwen recently, for one.

Kendal will face the winners of next Sunday's semi-final between Darwen and Netherfield in the final on Sunday 30 August.
The winners of the second semi-final will have home advantage in the final.
