Fox Lodge are through to the final of the All-Ireland T20 Women's competition after a 9-run win over CSNI in a rain-affected semi-final at Stormont.

The Ballymagorry side had reached 76 for 1 in the 12th over when the rain hit.

Lucy Neely (19*) and Sarah Black (17) had shared an opening stand of 30, with Neely and Mollie Devine (24*) adding an unbroken 46.

That strong position stood them in good stead when the DLS calculations came out - the home side needing a tough 50 in 5 overs.

The NW side were further helped by regulations which meant they could use 3 bowlers rather than 5 having one each.

Mollie Devine proved the match winner as she took 2 for 16 in her two, while Neely also conceded 16.

Skipper Kara Bates solitary over brought only 7, as CSNI finished on 40 for 4 - Jemma Gillan hitting 3 fours in an unbeaten 24.

Fox Lodge will meet Merrion in the final at Malahide on Sunday August 27th.
