The Mullum XI celebrate a wicket. Photo supplied

The Mullumbimby High U/14 girl’s side lost the final of the T20 Lyn Larsen Shield on the second last ball of the day, after setting Grafton a total of 117.

The Mullumbimby side batted first after travelling to Grafton, and looked in a strong position to win after  keeping Grafton to just 31 off their first 10 overs.

But a big effort saw the home side score 87 runs off the final ten overs to win a very exciting game.

‘The girls were excited and proud to get where they did in this knock-out competition. They really worked very hard,’ coach Eddie Buckingham said.
