Kingborough celebrate victory over University after the Women's Kookaburra Cup Grand Final

It was the Bonnie Davies show on Saturday as the Kingborough captain produced a man of the match performance to guide her side to a 10-wicket win over University.

 

The Knights day started off in the right fashion, winning the toss and sending the students into bat. The formidable partnership of Ashley Day and Sasha Moloney looked good from on the onset and at 0/28 inside 4 overs were cruising until Leah Wierenga got the breakthrough and upended Moloney stumps for 13. Louise Maddock then joined Ash Day at the crease and the par looked solid adding another 19 before Weirenga again struck taking Day’s wicket for 25.

 

GRAND FINAL SCORECARD

 

Maddock was then joined by Maddie Blazely and the par looked in phenomenal touch hitting to all parts and adding a further 44 before a collapse of sorts hit with the inclusion of Lauren Hepburn into the attack bringing wickets. Hepburn picked up the prized scalps of both batsmen and from this it was all down hill for University losing their last 7 wickets for 41 runs to finish all out for 150.

 

It was then Bonnie Davies and Brooke Hepburn who starred from the very first ball to put on an unbeaten opening partnership and chase down the 151 run total in amazingly just the 24th over with Davis finishing on 67 and Hepburn on 57.

 

Both teams now turn the attention back to the T/20 competition with a match up in the Semi Finals or Final looking likely.
