However, after Mason was run out after a straight drive deflected off the bowler, CD collapsed to 102 for six.
Cocksedge (28) and fellow schoolgirl Kate Tunnicliffe (21) led the side back on track, pushing them to a healthy total.
Mason then took 3-30 and Cocksedge 2-32 as Northern were dismissed for 121.Zara McWilliams cleaned up the tail with balls wickets for no runs off five balls.
