Women’s T20 season starts with nail-biter
THE inaugural GCA Women’s T20 got under way on the weekend.
Torquay Black started their season with a thrilling win over East Belmont Deb, chasing down their target of 118 with just three deliveries to spare.
Torquay female cricket co-ordinator and Torquay Black player Sarah Boak said it was a great event.
“It was just an amazing experience for all the girls involved. They all just thoroughly enjoyed being out there.”
Boak said she was also delighted that Torquay had gotten the numbers to field two sides in the league.
“It’s been absolutely amazing to see the interest that we’ve had and the girls have just become such a close group, it’s been really good.”
Leopold also had a challenging opening game, with St Joseph’s defeating them by nine wickets. Former Leopold junior player Caitlin McKinlay put in a strong performance, though, the opener making a brisk 31 before being run out.
Portarlington got off to a winning start in high scoring match against Highton Durran. They chased down Highton Durran’s target of 137 with four overs to spare.
