South Launceston retained an unblemished record on Sunday to fine-tune its quest for a third straight Greater Northern Cup women’s title.
Three of the four Cricket North teams have qualified for next week’s finals series.
Mowbray advanced into third spot despite ending its preliminary rounds with a first loss in six matches.
Ulverstone’s win over the Eagles had ensured the Black Caps would now wave the Cricket North West flag in the face of South Launceston.
On a day that favoured the bowlers, an unbroken 33-run stand pushed Ulverstone to 5-97 in the Twenty20 clash.
Mowbray bowlers Cassie Blair and Emily Scott finished with two wickets each.
But four run outs in the Eagles top-order spoiled the run chase at West Park that was restricted to 8-78.
Captain Dana Lester top-scored with 22 off 34 balls.
Mowbray sealed its finals place earlier in the day with a reassuring 30-run victory against Burnie.
The Eagles managed 8-82 on the back of unbeaten 16 from Paige Gibson with a steadying 16 from Lester.
The captain then turned her hand to the ball, picking up the astounding figures of 5-1 off just nine balls.
Lester’s devastating spell turned the Hurricanes from 4-51 to be all out for 52.
Launceston booked in second spot on Sunday and a meeting with Mowbray in the semis following superb back-to-back bowling displays.
The Lions’ batters were only able to muster 9-69, much largely due to Victoria Geale batting until the final over for 24 off 26 deliveries.
After putting on an opening stand of 19, Wynyard lost the next 10 wickets for just a further 19 in the 31-run loss.
Sophie Johns mopped up the tail cheaply, picking up 4-0 off only six balls.
Teammate Amy Pereira took 3-7 in three overs to set up the North-West Blues’ fall.
Launceston had an easier win over Devonport, still on a high after its first triumph of the season last week.
The Lions rolled the hosts for just 41 that included 13 extras before peeling off the small target in nine overs without losing a wicket.
South Launceston locked in top spot that was under threat from Mowbray had it won both matches on Sunday and Sheffield caused an upset against the Knights to claim fourth position.
But Belinda Wegman’s side never looked troubled as it contained the sluggish Mountaineers to just 6-62.
Chelsea Ryan was the clear pick of the Knights bowlers with 3-5 off just four overs.
Caitlyn Webster opened and saw South through to the winning runs, finishing 30 not out while Wegman hit 21 off 23 deliveries.
Riverside ended its flat cup campaign with a fifth defeat.
The Blues were pressured after Latrobe compiled 5-107 – the only score on Sunday that reached three figures.
Riverside could only manage 6-88, as skipper Nicola Dusautoy (15) and Katie Broad (12) both made starts.
