Garth leads Ireland to clean sweep

Kim Garth produced a Player-of-the-Match performance as Ireland Women completed a clean sweep against Scotland in the third and final T20 game in the Celtic Cup.

The Pembroke all-rounder took 2 for 12 in her four-over spell as Scotland were restricted to 100 for 6, with the other wicket takers being Isobel Joyce (1-13), Rachel Delany (1-14) and Lara Maritz (1-19).

Lorna Jack and Kathryn Bryce both scored 22 apiece for the Wildcats, while Katie McGill made 20 in a 7th wicket stand of 43 with Jack after they had been reduced to 57 for 6.

The Irish reply was in deep trouble as Kathryn Bryce dismissed Clare Shillington and Mary Waldron. When Laura Delany and Gaby Lewis followed in quick succession, the Girls in Green were reeling at 26 for 4.

However Garth and Isobel Joyce staged a rescue act as they added an unbroken 75 for the 5th wicket to seal the win with 16 balls to spare.

The pair hit two boundaries each as Garth top scored with 35 from 37 balls, while Joyce

made 31 from 30.
