Defeat for Warriors as Festival ends with 5-over bash

A disappointing week for the North West Warriors ended in a 20-run defeat at the hands of Munster Reds this afternoon as the IPT20 Festival drew to a close at Sydney Parade.

The morning rains just about cleared in time to facilitate a 5-over bash in the first game and it was the Reds who set a testing target of 57-3 from their set.

Curtis Campher hit 4 fours in his 7-ball 20 with Tyrone Kane adding 16 off 8; Graham Hume 1-15 (2 overs) and Ryan Macbeth 1-14 from his one, the wicket-takers.

The North West’s chase didn’t start well at all- only Stephen Doheny (16) making any inroads as Campher (4-15) and Josh Manley (3-12) took full advantage of the Warriors desperate search for boundaries.

In the end they could muster only 37-7 in reply- a day, and indeed a week that Boyd Rankin’s charges will want to put behind them quickly.

The Warriors have two games against the Knights coming up at Stormont next week (T20 on Wednesday and 50-over game on Thursday) and two more against Lightning the following week at Bready.
