Ben White's five wicket haul ensured Northern Knights beat Munster Reds to claim the second win of the T20 weekend.

The CSNI leg-spinner's five wickets for 13 were the second best figures in the T20 format - bettered only by former Knight Shane Getkate.

White ripped the heart out of the Munster middle order - accounting for Fionn Hand, the Ford brothers, Seamus Lynch and debutant Mitchell Thompson.

Stand-in skipper PJ Moor's 49 was the best for the Cork side and it took late runs from Josh Manley (23*) and Aaron Cawley (19) to give them a fighting chance - a final total of 137 for 9.

The Knights lost James McCollum early in the chase and adopted a safety first, cautious approach thereafter.

The required rate climbed above eight but Luke Georgeson pressed the accelerator, throwing the bat (literally) as he reached his half century - making 51 from 41 balls (5 fours, 3 sixes).

When Harry Tector went, the required equation was 48 off 6 overs, but any nerves were settled by Mark Adair and Neil Rock.

Adair hit three fours off one Hand over on his way to 21 off 14 balls, while Rock's unbeaten 26 included two sixes - the second sealing the five wicket win with nine balls left.

Credit to Munster for battling, but the Knights make it two wins from two going to the second Festival in Bready next week.
