A six-wicket haul to NSW Breakers’ off-spinner Lauren Smith has guided Sydney Rangers to a hard fought 21-run win over Bankstown Sports at Drummoyne Oval on Sunday.
Rangers 9-206 defeated Bankstown Sports 185. Smith took her season tally to eight wickets in two games by picking up figures of 6-31 from nine overs as well as contributing a handy 22 with the bat. Earlier in the day it was a consistent batting effort by Sydney who had two batters score in excess of thirty runs and two players score more than twenty.
At Sydney University Oval 1, there was a low scoring match between Gordon and Universities. Gordon made 142 after winning the toss and batting. The mainstay in the Gordon innings was Charlotte Anneveld (61) who had a very good match by collecting 3-16 off ten overs including five maidens. Universities could only muster 49 in reply to hand Gordon victory by 93-runs.
In the round’s final fixture Campbelltown-Camden thumped their way to a 131-run drubbing of Sutherland-St George. Batting first, Campbelltown-Camden were dismissed for 200 in the 50th over. Leading the way was Hannah Trethewy (64) and Lauren Cheatle (56). In reply St George-Sutherland managed only 69 in just 23 overs. The standout bowler for Campelltown-Camden was Clare Koski with great figures of 5-24 from six overs.
Penrith had the bye.
