THE final group stage matches of the inaugural Mahua Super 8 Challenger Cup took place at a blistering pace this weekend as four teams advanced to the semi-finals.

Following an opening weekend that featured more than 700 runs, the teams again scored freely with Group One underdogs Ardent being the highest run scorers to date.

Island Community Cricket Club were the first team to reach the last four as the Isle of Dogs club benefited from a walkover win over India in their opening match on Saturday.

La Porte des Indes posted a huge total of 168-2 in the day's second match and eventually ran out as winners by more than a hundred runs as OPG were restricted to 64-4 off 10 overs.

In a must-win match on Sunday, Ardent piled on the runs against Wiseman's Cricket Club, with Deckence (pictured) scoring a magnificent 77 to bring up a total of 140-2 off 10 overs.

Wiseman's scored a respectable 72 runs in reply but ultimately fell well short of the target.

In the day's other match, East London Community Cricket Club needed to inflict a first loss on undefeated Bangladesh CCF to progress, but were unable to match Bangladesh's score of 117 as they collapsed to 82-6 and went out of the tournament.
