CSNI retained the Women’s Challenge Cup with a 28-run win against familiar foes Waringstown at Stormont. Batting first, CSNI lost the early wicket of Lucie McNaught (6), bowled by Jennifer Hanna (1-19). However, a second wicket stand of 117 between home skipper Rachael Thomas and Alison Cowan put CSNI very much in the ascendancy. Player-of-the-match Thomas top-scored with 59 from 57 balls (7 fours) before being dismissed by Susie McCollum (1-24), while Cowan made an unbeaten 55 as CSNI posted 142 for 2. Jemma Gillan (3-17) and Jess Mayes (2-18) took early wickets, but Charlotte Lyons run-a-ball 40 (6 fours) gave her side hope as she added 67 in 10 overs with Abbi Harrison (21). However further wickets for Leah Beattie (2-19), and Abi Leckey (2-28) saw CSNI clinch victory despite a defiant 26 from Susie McCollum.
