Knights take the lead in Emerging Challenge

The Northern Knights have drawn first blood in the two-match series between themselves and the North West Warriors- the Belfast side posting a 5-wicket success at Comber in this afternoon’s opening joust.

Shane Getkate was the standout performer as Boyd Rankin’s charges batted first- hitting 8 fours in three sixes in his 84; just over half of the Warriors’ total of 167 all out.

Josh Manley (2-10), Cian Robertson (2-25), Finn Lutton (2-28) and James West (2-36) were best with the ball for the hosts, who always looked in control in their reply.

Ryan Hunter top scored with 41, Aditya Addey made 37, Ani Chore 28 and Adam Leckey 23 not out as they got over the line with plenty in hand.

Stuart Kennedy was the pick of the Warriors’ bowlers as he claimed 2-31.

The final game takes place at Bready on Monday (10.45am)
