Dominant FPs crush Crescent

FPs continued their late season renaissance with their third win in a row, once again recording a nine wicket triumph.  Alex Keith continued his fine form with an unbeaten 84 from 89 balls and shared 121 with Geoff Morrison who made a measured 32.  It had not seemed a likely outcome as Crescent raced to 73 for no wicket in 9 overs, but a 4 wicket blitz from Vijay Vijapur and 4 from Roland Knudson ensured Crescent made just 142 in 29 overs.

Vijay Vijapur chipped in with 4 for 23, before a typically robust innings from Alex Keith (78 not out) and a measured 39 not out from Pehlaj Tenneti, saw FPs home with 22 overs to spare.
