Hannah Grieve led the Lurgan team to victory as the skipper hit yet another superb undefeated half century. The game had to be switched to one of the new artificial wickets at Pollock Park and North Down put the Lurgan girls into bat on winning the toss. Hannah lost opener Chloe Neville for 2 and Sarah McCallan for 2, with just 15 runs on the board. This brought Lauren Breakey to the middle
