Mount Martha batting first amassed 9/103 after the alloted 40 overs. The pirates in true pirate spirit shared the load wth the ball using 11 bowlers. L.Enno ended up with 4, whilst P.Rowe and Shayler finished with 2 apiece. Freeman finished with 3 catches.
The Pirates got off to a shakey start with the run chase losing the first 5 wickets for 29 runs. THings were looking grim until H.Rowe and Quinn steadied the pirate ship with solid 20's in the middle order.
A couple of quick wickets in the nineties swung the balance of the match back in favor of Mount Martha, but in what must have been a thrilling, but nerve racking finish the boys got home nine wickets down with 5 balls to spare.
Well done boys, enjoy your win.
