Girls start with a win

Lurgan Ladies started their shortened season with an emphatic 55 run win over Instonians.
Batting first the Lurgan girls posted a formidible 128 run target to win for the visitors . Emma McMurray proved to be the mainstay of the innings and was very unfortunate to be run out just 1 run short of what would have been an excellent 50. Hannah Grieve hit 28, her innings including 2 fours and a six, while Jane Kilpatrick finished on 10 not out. In reply, Instonians were never up with the required run rate and Emma McMurray rounded off an excellent performance by taking 3 wkts for just 12 runs in her 4 overs. All the Lurgan bowlers proved to be economic and there was a wicket each for Cara Rainey and Samantha Todd as the visitors finished their 20 overs on 72 for 4 wkts.
