The amazing Gordon's Women Cricket team were crowned CHAMPIONS of T20 and they looked fantastic in their Beastwear Gear. Congratulation Ladies, lets hope the Mens team can win some silverware too.
Gordon has won the McDonald’s Women's Premier Cricket final of the combined First and Second Grade T20 competition, defeating Campbelltown-Camden in a tense final at Raby Oval on Sunday.
After qualifying for the final with a four-wicket win over St George-Sutherland 1 in the semi-final earlier in the day, Gordon batted first but was restricted to 8-111 from its 20 overs. Opening batter Hannah Trollip top-scored with a patient 43 from 40 balls and was supported in the middle order by Heidie Cheadle (23 from 35 balls). For Campbelltown-Camden, Yardley Polsen led from the front with 3-17 and was supported by Claire Koski who collected figures of 2-23.
In reply Campbelltown-Camden relied heavily on the bat of Clare Koski, who top scored with 58 as part of an all-round performance which earned her player of the match.
It continued a wonderful day with the bat for Koski after earlier scoring 74 not out against Universities in Campbelltown-Camden's semi-final victory.
However she was unable to gain any support from her team mates with only Tahlia Wilson (22) managing to reach double figures. It was a tense finish in the end with Gordon securing victory by six runs.
For Gordon, Charlotte Anneveld was superb taking brilliant figures of 4-8 from her four over. Earlier on she had collected 3-15 off four overs in the semi-final and found form with the ball at the right time of the tournament. She finishes the T20 season with 13 wickets at an average of just 7.2 Sydney Sixers squad member Emily Leys chipped in with two very vital wickets, including the prized scalp of Koski when she was well set. Leys also contributed a valuable 13 with the bat.
In conjunction with the final, Northern District Gold and Parramatta played for the Under 17 Brewer Shield.
Winning the toss and batting first, Northern District pushed itself to a commanding 4-136 from its 20 overs. There was even contributions from the top order as Alisha Bates (31), Molly Munden (28) and Captain Sarah Turner (27) got among the runs.
In reply, Parramatta struggled against the tight bowling of Northern District, who swapped its bowlers around at regular intervals. Five bowlers secured a wicket and were backed up by some good fielding to restrict Parramatta to 6-117 in reply.
