Second placed Clarence took on fourth place Lindisfarne, where Lindisfarne won the toss and elected to bat. Clarence’s Jessie Mudaliar was good with the ball, claiming 2/11 from 3 overs, whilst Olivia McDonald was economical from her four overs and good in the field. A solid opening partnership of 64 runs between Paris Crowe (32) and top scorer Clare Scott (41), helped set up the home side in totaling 5/110 at the end of their 20 overs. Lindisfarne’s Veronica Pyke was economical from her four overs, whilst dual wickets from Paris Crowe (2/11) and Teghan Honey (2/17), made it difficult for Clarence to score freely. Nat Pearce came to the crease for Clarence when her side were 3/37 and helped steady the ship with a quick 22 from 15 balls, before falling at the hand of a Honey delivery. Needing 15 runs for victory off the last over, new batsman Jenna Farrow did all she could, but the Roos fell short by four runs.
North Hobart kept Uni to 3/87 at the close of innings, thanks to some handy bowling across the board, including Mackenzie Banks with 2/6 from two overs, 1/15 off four overs from Kendylle Byers and economical figures from Grace Pullen and Beth Langston. In reply, Steph Daffara was in a hurry, making a quick fire 54 from 36 balls, supported by Taylah Purton (17), to have the target reached by the tenth over.
SHSB’s opening batter, Angela Green starred with the bat in her sides victory over Glenorchy, smashing the boundary 18 times on her way to an unbeaten top score of 106* from just 60 deliveries. Glenorchy’s Alicia Rattenbury took 3/27, and at the end of their 20 overs, SHSB were 4/116. In reply, Thomassa Corrie made an unbeaten top score of 55*, but it wasn’t enough to secure Glenorchy the win, with SHSB running away 57 run victors.
In other games, Brighton forfeited against Kingborough, whilst Greater Northern made the trek down to Hobart to play New Town, only to return home without play as a result of the match being abandoned due to a heavy downpour of rain.
