In the end the Warriors win the game by 52 runs. The Knights got off to a slow start, Smith's 20 took 33 balls.

So they were always behind the run rate, Getkate top scored with 30 but none of the Knights could kick on.

The Warriors get a bonus point for the win and will finish the Hanley Energy IP20 competition on 9 points. Safely in second place.

For the Knights all that they get is the wooden spoon.....

We don't have long to wait until the next game between these two teams. Sunday brings the IP50 game at Waringstown. So please join me then.

Thanks for following my commentary today, this is Justin Smyth saying good night from Strabane.
