NCU B claimed the Under 13 Festival title with a 54-run win against Munster at Foyle College.

The victory was set up by a third wicket partnership of 107 in 10 overs between Myles McNaught, and Luke Crothers (27). McNaught unveiled his full repertoire of strokes as he hit 10 fours and 5 sixes in a brilliant 83 that was the innings of the week.

Five wickets by Limerick’s Ayan Ullah (5-41) brought his side back into contention, but a final total of 172 in 30 overs was always going to be challenging.

Munster in reply couldn’t get going against a disciplined NCU attack, with Daniel Rayner getting two wickets in their total of 118 for 7 – Zaki Khalid top-scoring with 33.

The North West clinched second place with a 39-run win over Leinster B.

Bobby Brolly scored his second half century in two days, sharing a fourth wicket stand of 56 with Neelanch, who made 20.

Leg-spinner Sidhardt Biju (3-16) and Aryan Adelkar (2-17) brought Leinster back into the contest as they dismissed the hosts for 128.

Early wickets for Prathan Goud-Sama (3-14), and Swarnim Jha (3-20) had Leinster in trouble at 34 for 6, but a counter-attacking stand of 50 between Luka Vekic (31) and Arshat Sudhaharan (18) brought them back into contention.

However, two wickets apiece for Neelanch (2-2) and Bobby Brolly (2-5) sealed the win.

Meanwhile in Belfast, Leinster Under 13s completed a clean sweep of their interprovincial series against the NCU with an eight-wicket win.

The NCU were dismissed for 69 with Frank Hollway (17), and Harry Robinson (13) reaching double figures.

Best with the ball for Leinster were Aadi Wankhade (4-10), and Marius Pieenar (2-2).

Lorcan Craik made short work of the chase with a hard-hit 46, while Peter Le Roux made 14 as the win was sealed in the 13th over.
