The following Lemma is in Beauville-Donagi, and I always took it for granted. Now I've tried to find a proof, but got stuck. They say it is a really simple lemma, so I may just be overlooking something easy.
Let $V$ be a vector space of dimension $6$, and let $W \subset \bigwedge^2 V^*$ be a subspace of dimension $2$. Assume that every form in $W$ is degenerate. Then there is a subspace $K \subset V$ of dimension $4$ such that each form in $W$ restricts to $0$ on $K$.
