Bready captain Alana Dalzell receives the Premier League trophy from Davy Caldwell
Bready Women retained the Premiership title with a convincing 63-run win over rivals Fox Lodge in their rearranged league game on Thursday night. Batting first, the Magheramason side posted 132 for 4, thanks primarily to an opening stand of 82 between Cody Wallace (34*) and skipper Alana Dalzell (24). Emma Wasson took four wickets in quick succession to give the Foxies hope of a comeback, but runs for Abbie McKnight (17*) got the innings back on track. The total was boosted by 55 extras – 51 of which were wides, and Fox Lodge, missing star player Mollie Devine, will be hoping to get their radars adjusted before their all-Ireland clash with CSNI. Wickets for Cody Wallace (3-5) and Vanessa Buchanan (2-9) meant the Ballymagorry side were never in serious contention in the chase. Lucy Neely top-scored with an unbeaten 29, while there were double-figure contributions from Hannah McLaughlin (14) and Sarah Black (13) as they finished on 69 for 7.
