Female Premier Cricket continued on Sunday 19th January 2020 as A & B Grade One Day Comps move into Round 3.
A Grade One Day Competition - Round 3
Melville 3/156 def Midland Guildford 153 All Out
Midland Guildford won the toss and elected to bat first at Tompkins Park. After a 47 run opening partnership between Dattani (17) and Blizard (20), the Melville bowlers struck back, quickly reducing Midland Guildford to 3/63. Hempenstall (29) and Ireland (23) helped recover the innings but the Storm bowling attack would prove too strong, resulting in Midland Guildford being bowled out for 153, with Rebecca West taking 3/14. It would be a simple chase for the Storm, as Mathilda Carmichael continued her recent good form, making an unbeaten 73 to ensure they get home with almost 20 overs to spare.
South Perth 113 All Out def by Subiaco Floreat /115
After choosing to bat first South Perth were routed for just 113, as Nicole Bolton (4/25) and Emma King (2/18) did the damage with the ball for Subiaco Floreat. Only Rachel Delaney (28) and Lara Maritz (21) made any real contributions with the bat. Subiaco Floreat would race home in the run chase in just 17.3 overs, as Bolton (42no) and Heather Graham (50no) would take the Lions home without the lost of any wickets in a comprehensive victory.
B Grade One Day Competition - Round 2
Melville 9/161 def by Subiaco Floreat 8/167
Subiaco Floreat snuck home in a tight match against Melville thanks to skipper Emily Johnston. Johnston opened the batting for Subiaco Floreat, and posted a fine 102 where no other batter made over 14 in the total of 8/167 from the 40 overs. Tash Wylie snared 3/44 and Brooke Gardner 2/13 for the Storm in a disciplined bowling display. Jess Row took hold of the Storm run chase, but when she was run out on 65 it left Melville 8/158. The Lions however were able to hold off the fast finishing Storm and win by 6 runs as Evelyn Brock took 3/29.
Midland Guildford 3/172 def South Perth 171
South Perth chose to bat first at Lilac Hill, being bowled out for 171 as Monica Rallabhandi (36) and Emily Bowden (34) top scored for South Perth, with Emma Davidson taking 4/17 for Midland. Midland Guildford would cruise the chase home, as Sarah Fragomeni led at the top of the order, making 69, while Alisha Kozma and Annie Gevers would both make 24 each to help taking Midland Guildford to a 7 wicket win with just over 4 overs to spare.
Rockingham Mandurah 105 def by Perth 9/107
A good bowling display by the Demons kept Rockingham Mandurah to just 105 batting first at Lark Hill. 4 Perth bowlers took 2 wickets each, as only Kayla Van Spall would make over 13 for Rockingham Mandurah, making 19 at the top of the order. It was a case of regular wickets in the Perth chase, as opening bowlers Brooke de Oliverira (4/27) and Holly Pearce (2/21) had other ideas. Perth fell to 9/94 in the chase and the game looked like it could go wither way, but an unbeaten 13 run partnership between Piper and Meikle got the Demons home by a whisker in a closely fought encounter.
