Stunning win for Under-17 Girls

It was a very busy afternoon of cricket today with action on three fronts for players across the region with performance of the day going to the Under-17 Girls who beat Leinster 1 by 8 wickets at Campbell College.

Annabel Squires made 30 for the Southerners with Isabel Light adding 17 in their fairly modest 102 all out in 33 overs.

Cody Wallace bowled superbly for the North West side to return figures of 3-13 from 5 overs with Charlie Scott, Kia McCartney, Lucy Neely, Kenya McCartney and Jenni Jackson all on the mark as well.

Kaylee Barnard (32*) and Kia McCartney (22*) posted an unbroken 57-run stand for the third wicket to ensure the win; a thoroughly impressive effort from a quickly-improving side.

Up at Bready, the Dragons accounted for the Scorchers by four wickets after restricting Sophie McMahon’s side to 105-5 in their 20 overs.

Anna Kerrison top scored with 32* with skipper McMahon making 29 and Christina Coulter Reilly 20 not out while Arlene Kelly picked up 2-9 from her four overs.

The Dragons looked in complete control as Leah Paul (40) and Amy Hunter (34) put on 55 for the first wicket but despite a middle order wobble, they were able to get home without too much fuss.

Things weren’t quite so good at the Boathole where our Under-17 Boys lost by 82 runs to the NCU.

Ryan Hunter hit 9 fours in his unbeaten 77 while support came from Carson McCullough (27), Ryan Matthews (24) and Mohammed Aahil (23) as the visitors set a target of 174-3 from their 20 overs.

Gavin Roulston (36) and Scott Macbeth (27) gave the hosts some hope with a 54-run stand for the first wicket, however excellent spells from David Kane (3-11), Harry Dyer (3-29) and Jack Snell (2-12) saw the game turn very much the Belfast side’s way.
