After losing the toss Atherton was sent into bat with the goal to post a good defendable score on the infamous Edmonton pitch.

Atherton managed to make 84 runs before being bowled out on the second last ball of their innings.

Norths started well with their opener making it into the double figures before their number three made an impressive stand, making 31 not out.

When Atherton broke through the Norths line-up it was too little too late and the damage was done, Norths passed Atherton’s score in the 16th over.

Atherton has now been pushed out of the running for a finals appearance in the T20 competition, due to be played at Walker Road this Friday under lights.
