Lara Maritz starred with the ball as the Dragons beat the Typhoons in a match which had a distinctly end of season feel about it.

Irish star Maritz struck to dismiss a trio of her fellow internationals- Leah Paul, Clare Shillington and Amy Kenealy all failing to score.

Irish skipper Laura Delany battled bravely, hitting four boundaries in her unbeaten 45 from 49 balls.

However, she ran out of partners as the total reached 105 for 9 - Ellen Ridgeway being injured and there was no replacement player available.

Maritz got a taste of her own medicine as she became the first of Louise Little's three victims - Paris Crowe and Caoimhe McCann the others.

Kerry Tomlinson's 46 proved crucial as the Dragons won by four wickets.

The final match in the 2018 series sees champions Dragons facing the Scorchers at Clontarf.
