Fluctuating fortunes in McDonald’s Women’s NSW Cricket




Round two of the McDonald’s NSW Premier Cricket Women’s competition continued last weekend with some wonderful individual performances.

Leading the pack was Tahlia Wilson (pictured above), who scored 119 off just 116 balls in Campbelltown Camden’s defeat to Penrith at Howell Oval.

Wilson’s innings included 18 fours as she batted for 155 minutes.

Unfortunately for both Wilson and Campbelltown Camden it wouldn’t be enough to chase down the required target of 280 as they fell 46 runs short at the end of their 50 overs.

Earlier in the day, Penrith’s pair of Ashley Day (94) and Kate Waetford (86) put on 175 for the second wicket in what was the catalyst to them reaching 7-280 from their 50 overs.

At Glenn McGrath Oval, University would have been disappointed with their total of 191 having earlier been 1-154. University lost 9-37 in a horror spell.

In reply, Sutherland was dismissed in under 30 overs for an underwhelming 121.

Spinner Emily Mifsud was the chief destroyer with 6-28 off 6 overs.

In the round’s final fixture, it was a low scoring affair between Gordon and Bankstown Sports.

Gordon was skittled for 74 in 21 overs with only two players reaching double figures. Radha Jagtap took 3-11 off 4 overs and was supported by Emma Newman who collected 2-19 off 7 overs.

Bankstown Sports looked to be cruising to the required target of 75 when they moved to 2-62.

However they then proceeded to lose 3-0 to fall to 5-62. However they were able to pull themselves over the line in the 24th over for a five-wicket win.

Sydney Rangers had the bye.
