St Kevins win flag in Social Grade - dominate game against Mazenod

St Kevins 4/140 d Mazeond 7/73

At the Howard Dawson Reserve, St Kevin's had too much firepower for Mazenod - with an excellent platform set by their top order, Kate Stanton (32 from 18) enjoyed the freedom and 140 looked very competitive. As they have done all season, the St Kevin's attack bowled with great disicpline, and gave little away. Mazenod Skipper Liz Phibbs (16) and Tamara Ryan (12*) top scored.
