Taff’s Well B have progressed through to the Malcolm Keenor Trophy Final after a 3-2 win at Mackintosh gave them a 6-4 aggregate win.

Trailing 3-2 from the first leg, Mackintosh made a strong start by winning the first two frames to take a 4-3 lead after Alan Hurley and Khurram Khan beat Rob Hayes and Rhys Carpenter respectively.

Tom Cross then put his side ahead with a victory over Ronnie Allen and then Kevin Brown ensured there would be no play-off after he beat Simon Parker to take Taff’s Well through to the final.

Rumney British Legion produced an excellent performance to beat reigning Plate champions Mackies Lost Boys 4-1 after trailing 3-2 from the first leg to clinch a place in the final 6-4 on aggregate. Rumney won the opening two frames before a 33 break from Jason Veal levelled the match at 4-4. An unusual scenario in the next resulted in a re-rack after Lost Boys’ Ken Linsey found himself stuck in the pack after potting a red.
