It took Weston until the seventh over to strike when skipper Roxy Newman bowled a double wicket maiden to finish with figures of 4-1-6-2. Fellow opening bowler Emilia Taylor was unlucky to finish wicket less (4-0-4-0).
First change bowers of Emma Whitehead and Alice Wiseman brought about three further wickets, with Whitehead finishing with the best figures of the evening of 4-2-4-2. Wiseman finished with figures of 4-1-5-0.
The last four overs of the match brought Sarah Tedder and Georgia Tulip to the attack with Tedder taking a wicket, ending with figures of 2-0-3-1. Tulip bowled a tight line and finished with figures of 2-0-3-0.
Weston changed their batting order and Laura Foreman was unlucky to depart in the first over. Emma Gibbins (10 not out) was joined at the crease by Josie Smith (9 not out) and they hit the runs required by the fifth over.
