Y.M.C.A. Cricket Club YMCA Womens 1st XI v Clontarf 1 on Thu 06 Aug 2020 at 18:00
Y.M.C.A. Cricket Club Won by 58 runs

Match report Gaby Lewis scored an unbeaten century, took a wicket with the ball, before donning the wicket-keeping gloves and nabbing two stumpings as YMCA defeated Clontarf by 58 runs in the Sprint Coatings Women’s Division 1 on Thursday night.
Lewis carried her bat as she made 121* off 75 balls with an astonishing 20 boundaries and three huge sixes, in an exhibition of power hitting and precision placement.

Clontarf captain, Emma Butler, rotated her bowlers, using seven in total, in an effort to find the breakthrough. However, Lewis was steadfast in holding on to her wicket, redoubling her efforts when sister Robyn (38*) joined her at 61/1 at the end of the seventh over.
Molly Butler picked up the wicket of Sarah Forbes as her three overs went for just 18 runs, despite the efforts of Gaby Lewis to push the run rate towards 10 an over.
With such a daunting target to chase, Clontarf went about their task with a great deal of positivity. Aoife Brennan (29), in particular, attacked the YMCA bowling and struck five boundaries in her innings.
Anna Kirk (15), Susan Lawless (16*) and Hollie Erskine (15*) continued attacking to the very end, hitting seven boundaries between them, including some extravagant pulls and drives, as Clontarf amassed their highest total of the season, 127/5.
The excellence of Gaby Lewis was the difference however, as her earlier innings meant a 58-run victory for the southsiders.
Indeed, there was no keeping Lewis out of the action as she took 1-17 bowling her four overs straight, before taking over wicket-keeping duties from Sarah Forbes immediately after the 8th over.
Once behind the stumps, Lewis completed a fine run out of Brennan with Emma McEvoy before showing sharp hands to effect two stumpings.
A fantastic night’s entertainment from two incredibly young sides.
