St Charles won the toss and asked Northwood to bat first. Northwood batted very slowly and after 25 overs they had only reached 48 for 3 wickets . This brought Blayde Capell to the wicket and once again his positive batting helped Northwood reach a respectable 205/8 . Blayde Capell had a 60 run partnership with Andile Mokange (12) which put Northwood back on track. Blayde hit the ball to all corners on the field and fell 7 runs short of which would have been a well deserved century .
Northwood had St Charles 60/6 after brilliant opening bowling from Andile Mokange (2/22) and Slater Capell (2/30) . After tea C van Lingem came to the crease and took the game to Northwood with some power hitting, with 6 massive sixes and scoring 60 runs off 30 balls . All the lower order batsmen for St Charles chipped in and took St Charles to needing 12 runs off the last over. A Wright held his nerve and bowled Van Lingem with the first ball of the last over giving Northwood a tight 12 run win.
