Gaby Lewis starred with the bat as the Scorchers survived an incredible collapse to take a three-one lead against the Typhoons at Oak Hill.

Lewis top scored with a brilliant 95, just missing out on a deserved century having been dismissed by Celeste Raack.

She hit 11 fours and cleared the ropes once in her 109-ball knock, but couldn't believe not getting to three figures having smashed the ball straight to Naughton.

Her dismissal was in the middle of a quite remarkable collapse as he side lost seven wickets for 14 runs in five overs - 163 for 3 in the 34th over becoming 177 all out in the 39th.

Merrion leg-spinner Raack and Phoenix's Georgina Dempsey each taking three wickets as the scorecard took on a binary look with four 0's and two 1's.

The collapse though wasn't to prove fatal as the Typhoons chase never gained momentum, with Louise McCarthy striking an early blow as she had Irish skipper Laura Delany caught behind.

Rebecca Stokell (31) offered some resistance before becoming one of four victims for Merrion's left-arm spinner Leah Paul (4-21).

The Typhoons were eventually dismissed for 106, with McCarthy (2-22), Sophie MacMahon (2-14) and Kate McEvoy (1-5) the other successful bowlers.

The sides have a two-week break now before the series resumes, with fours games scheduled for September 6, 13, 20 and 27.
