At last some cricket to report. The Archus Super 50 Cup series commenced with the Scorchers winning by 14 runs against the Typhoons.
All the Merrion players taking part contributed with Leah Paul putting in a good all round performance sharing in a half century opening partnership [she made 16 before being run out] and taking 3/42 off her 10 overs for the winners. Rachel Delaney  and Rebecca Stokell  made a good start chasing the Scorchers 221/5. After the fall of a few wickets Celeste Raack [40*] nearly managed an unlikely victory but eventually ran out of time.
