The NW beat the NCU by four wickets in the first U15 girls interpro at The Rectory.

Batting first the NCU scored 76 for 6 in their 20 overs, thanks primarily to a 51-run partnership between Donacloney Mill's Joni and Annie Cunningham who made 25 and 16.

For the hosts there was a wicket apiece for Lucy Neely, Kaylee Barnard, and Cody Wallace, while St Johnston all-rounder Mansi Bhavsar picked up a brace.

Among the runs for the NW were Kenya and Kia McCartney with 17 and 12, while Eglinton's all-rounder Alice McLaughlin made a vital unbeaten 15.

The U23 sides meet for the first time today (WED) at Coleraine, while the NCU U15 side play Leinster U13s next Wednesday at Rush.
