Winning Typhoons squad (Siobhan Taylor)
Total demolition of the Scorchers top order by Georgina Dempsey and Ava Canning who bowled unchanged, reducing the Scorchers to 47/7 when rain caused an interruption. No relief for the batting side after the resumption with Alice Tector wrapping up the innings with the total on just 60 - Extras top score with 15. Can the Typhoons wrap up the win before the promised rain returns - Silly question! All over inside 7 overs, as one-sided a contest as you will ever see. The win gives the Typhoons the title with still one match to play at Oak Hill next week.

A century from Amy Hunter and seven wickets for Cara Murray spearheaded a 67-run win for the Dragons over table toppers Typhoons in ongoing Super Series 50 overs Cup at Stormont.

Leg-spinner Murray then ripped through the middle and lower order to have the excellent analysis of 7 for 34 - a competition record and with it the Player of the Match award.

Two wickets for Arlene Kelly left the Typhoons 7 down with 30 still needed, but Delany ensured the win, ending unbeaten on 98 (7 fours, 1 six). Earlier the Dragons total of 226 owed much to their Irish internationals Amy Hunter and Orla Prendergast.

The Dragons won a last-ball thriller against the Typhoons in their T20 clash at Eglinton. Needing four to win, Mary Waldron was run-out by Alana Dalzell coming back for the third run that would have secured a super-over, Batting first the Dragons lost early wickets including internationals Amy Hunter and Cara Murray, as well as overseas player Bella Armstrong. Captain Leah Paul top-scored with 44 from 37 balls (6 fours), sharing a 5th wicket stand of 51 in 9 overs with Arlene Kelly. That helped them to 120 for 7 - three wickets for Ireland captain Laura Delany, two for the impressive Lou-lou Little, and one apiece for Freya Sargent and Ava Canning. Player of the Match Cara Murray took the wickets of Robyn Searle and Delany to leave the match in the balance at 50 for 3 in the 9th. A fourth wicket stand of 60 in 9 overs between Mary Waldron and Georgia Atkinson (32) reduced the equation to 11 required off 10 balls, but the decisive moment came when Atkinson was run out by a direct hit from Aoife Fisher at mid-on. Waldron's half-century in vain in a match that ebbed and flowed. The Typhoons though have a final chance at redemption, with a winner-takes-all clash at Oak Hill on Monday against the Scorchers.

The latter then made an unbeaten 27 to clinch the Player of the Match accolade, with runs once again for Zimbabwe captain Mary-Anne Musonda - who hit 7 boundaries in her 38 from 25 balls. There were double figure contributions too from Gaby Lewis (18), Lara Maritz (16*) and Coulter-Reilly (15*) as the win was reached with 17 balls to spare.

Zimbabwean Mary-Anne Musonda led Scorchers to a five-wicket win in the opening match of the Super Series at Malahide. Her unbeaten 36 proved the difference in a low scoring encounter, where runs were at a premium in tough conditions.

Cara Murray accounted for Sophie MacMahon and Lara Maritz, while Sarah McEvoy dismissed Christina Coulter-Reilly to give the Dragons hope. However, Musonda guided them home to seal the win in the penultimate over. Earlier, Dragons captain Leah Paul top-scored with 27, hitting two of only three boundaries in the innings. The left-hander shared a stand of 42 with Alana Dalzell (16) who was the only other player to reach double figures. Hannah Little (2-6) and Ellie McGee (2-9) each took two wickets, while the fielders were at the top of their game, making four run-outs to keep Dragons to 82 for 9.
