Ireland Women's International Matches
Ireland beat Scotland by 117 runs
T20, Rugby, England, 17 August 2014
Six of the best from Ireland

Ireland Women finished their European T20 Championships in style with two comprehensive victories against The Netherlands and Scotland at Rugby today, making it six wins out of six.

Cecelia Joyce became the second Irish woman to score an international T20 century as she made an unbeaten 119 from just 68 balls as Ireland thumped Scotland by 117 runs in the afternoon game.

Joyce clubbed a record 21 boundaries in her majestic innings, sharing a 3rd wicket stand of 160 - another Irish record - with Merrion club mate Kate McKenna, who made 45.

Their magnificent partnership saw Ireland finish on 181 for 3, which proved far too many for their opponents.

Louise McCarthy claimed 3 for 7, while Kim Garth took 2 for 8 as Scotland were dismissed for just 64.

Only Olivia Rae (22), and Kari Anderson (21) offered any semblance of resistance.
