Hannah Francis bowled Anna Martin in the seventh over to give Petone a good start. Eight overs later, Florence Marshall was given out LBW off Bree James to put Collegians 41-2.

Collegians needed an early wicket and they got one when McAleer bowled Bree James in the fourth over. At this point of the match, anything could have happened, but no one could have expected Hannah Francis and Esme Olney-Boyd to get the total themselves.

The duo put on 149 runs for the second wicket, with Olney-Boyd finishing on 45 not out and Francis scoring an exceptional 101 off 101 balls not out. This win from Petone was extremely impressive and books them a spot in the final next weekend.
