The Leinster U17 girls' teams won all four matches against their Northern opponents, although they were certainly made to work for their victories.

Leinster's Team 1 made it six wins out of six to capture the inaugural title, as they won their back-to-back games against the North West.

Zara Craig top scored with 35 as the NW made 92/6 - two wickets for Emma McEvoy.

Ella Pasley made 39 not out in the chase, sharing stands of 46 with Jane Loughran (15) and 44 with Rebecca Gough (21*) as they won by eight wickets in the 16th over - two wickets for Kenya McCartney (2-24).

The second game followed a similar pattern as Arianna McKenna (27) and Cody Wallace (20) saw the NW post 96 for 8, with Georgina Dempsey, Katie Dillon and Anna Marshall taking two wickets apiece.

Dempsey hit nine boundaries as she made 44 in the reply, sharing an opening stand of 77 with Marshall (35) as another eight wicket win was sealed in the 13th over - Kia McCartney and Kara Bates the successful bowlers.

Leinster's Second team also were on a winning streak against the NCU.

In the first match the NCU posted 100/3 with Sophie Hinds making 31.

Lucy McDonough's unbeaten 35 was pivotal in the successful four wicket chase.

In the afternoon game Lucy McNaught's 31 helped the NCU to 123 for 6 - Freya Sargent taking three wickets.

In a tense chase, the young Dubliners got over the line, winning by two wickets thanks primarily to Lara McBride's 34.

A successful tournament played in glorious sunshine throughout which will no doubt help the development of girls' cricket in the country.
