A fantastic 153 run partnership saw Framlingham College surge into the last 16 of the School Sport Magazine National Schools U15 Girls T20 Cricket Cup.
Beth Gardens (97no) and India North (56no) came together with their side in trouble at 33-4 against Shenfield HS, with Katie Bailey (3-19) doing most of the damage.
The partnership propelled the Norfolk side to 186-4 in their 20 overs, a total that proved too much for Shenfield who succumbed to 102-6.
They will be joined by Reigate Grammar, who earned a trip to neighbours Kingston Grammar, with a 31 run victory over Alleyn’s School.
Rosie Foster (68) and Lucy Harris (58no) provided the foundation for the win as Reigate’s total of 155-5 proved too much for Alleyn’s (124-5).
Also in the south east division, Bede’s School (112-2) edged their way through to the last 16 with a narrow four run triumph over Guildford HS (108-4).
Next up is a trip to Kent and Sutton Valence School, who enjoyed an equally tight victory, this time over Bromley High School.
Bromley scored 110-4 in their 20 overs before Sutton Valence chased down the target for the loss of six wickets with just two balls remaining.
In the south west region, Millfield (143-4) overcame rain delays to defeat King’s College Taunton (38-3) on a faster scoring rate.
And in the northern division, Annie Williams scored a terrific unbeaten century as Repton School (206) defeated Scarborough College (103) by 103 runs.
In the U18 cup, remaining sides have reached the last 16 stage with less than a month to go before finals day at Reigate Grammar School on Wednesday July 6.
Norfolk’s Wymondham College (57-0) continued their impressive form with a ten wicket victory over Stamford High School (56-9) thanks largely to three wickets apiece from Abby Dye and Niamh Rushton.
