A magnificent century to Gordon’s Hannah Trollip has guided them to a comprehensive 57-run win over St George-Sutherland 1 in Round Three of the NSW Premier Cricket T20 played over the weekend.
Trollip hit 109 not out from 69 balls including 19 fours and one six as Gordon posted 3-170 from its 20 overs. This backed up Trollip’s innings of 67 in her previous T20 innings against Sydney a fortnight ago. St George Sutherland 1 could only score 9-113 from its 20 overs with Shannon Heath 2-19 off four overs strangling the life out of the attempted run chase for St George-Sutherland 1.
Sydney Thunder squad member Naomi Stalenberg hit a polished 56 not out to help Penrith White to a crunching eight-wicket win over Sydney at Drummoyne Oval. Stalenberg’s innings came from just 32 balls and entertained the crowd watching with six fours and one six in her 35-minute stay at the crease. It had been an all-round great day for Stalenberg who took two catches and finished with figures of 1-8 from two overs with the ball. Earlier on Sydney could only reach 7-98 from its 20 overs.
Parramatta defeated St George-Sutherland 2 by three-wickets in its clash at Merrylands Oval courtesy of an unbeaten half century to Rebecca Miller. Chasing St George-Sutherland’s 4-118, Miller scored a quick 64 not out from 42 balls with seven fours and two sixes as they got home with just two balls to spare.
In the round’s two other fixtures: Universities won a low scoring encounter against Bankstown at Sydney University number 1 field by four-wickets and Penrith Black thumped Northern District by 59-runs in its clash at Howell Oval. Campbelltown-Camden had the bye.
