Wickets were hard to get when we bowled but we kept Heasville to 5/74 off their allotted overs. Best of the bowlers were Rachael Hunt with 2/6 off 4 overs & Brittany Partington 1/17 off 4 overs.
This win saw us play Strathmore in the final.
We bowled first and we had them in real trouble early getting 3 wickets in 5 overs for only 5 runs. However from there they steadied and put on some good partnerships to finish 8/68 off their 20 overs. Best of the bowlers were Rachael Hunt with the great figures of 4/4 off 4 overs & Toni Black 2/5 off 2 overs.
Chasing this total we also lost quick wickets with both openers out with only 11 runs on the board. However Rachael Hunt (19) & Brittany Partington (14) got us back on track and for the remainder of the innings runs ticked by as the wickets also fell. Unfortunately we were all out with 1 over to go, losing by 9 runs.
Another successful year for the girls, finishing runners up in the state final.
