Northwood did not get off to the best start as they lost a few early wickets. DHS were looking to fight their way back into the game but K.Rowling and D.Van der Merwe once again stepped up and managed to steer the ship. The pair held the innings together with K. Rowling making 30 runs before being dismissed and D.Van der Merwe was on 40 when he was stumped off the bowling of A. Ndlovu. The Northwood batsmen were eating away at the runs despite losing a few more wickets, seeing DHS off in the 43rd over for a three wicket victory.
