Northwood kept up with the required run rate with good contributions from D Krummeck 26 and B Capell 22 .After the departure of Krummeck and Capell , Northwood had to work hard, G Wright 16 not out and N Jaffar 14 ran brilliantly between the wicket to set up a tense finish with Northwood requiring 1 run off the final ball which they achieved once again with a brilliant run. Northwood won by 5 wickets and can look forward to competing in the semi-final in 2014.
