Tournament Recap: 14 & Under Girls
More success for SA women's indoor cricket! After starting their tournament 0-4, these superstars made it all the way to the Grand Final! They did eventually go down to an undefeated Victorian side 116-35, but to even make it that far was an incredible effort! 2nd place is a fantastic result.
Some of the tournament highlights included their opening win over NSW Metro by just 3 runs to get the ball rolling, followed by their two finals wins over Queensland and the same NSW side- this time by only 4 runs! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
QLD 26 | 11 | 24 | 14 | 75
SA 31 | 10 | 44 | 37 | 122
NSW Metro 36 | 18 | 13 | 37 | 104
SA 30 | 9 | 44 | 25 | 108
The dominant 3rd skin pairing of @perkinscassidy and @chloe.rosenzweig belted 44 runs twice to help SA cruise past Queensland in the first final, and then regain the ascendency to squeeze past NSW Metro.
@paris_jade23’s player of the match performance of 30 runs and 2/-1 combined with Alanah Gregory’s 18 runs and 4/-3 were also outstanding performances in the win over Queensland.
Leading run scorers:
Alanah – 177 runs @ 16.09 (2nd in the competition)
@neeve.reimann – 168 runs @ 14 (5th)
While Chloe, Cassidy and Paris also all scored in excess of 140 runs!
The leading SA wicket takers were:
Alanah - 12 wickets @ 7.55 (equal 5th)
Paris - 13 wickets @ 6.36 (equal 4th)
@_caitlin_5 - 10 wickets @ 5.88
Congratulations to all the girls for doing SA proud! Hopefully they learn lots from the experience, and can all stick together moving forward - which will no doubt bring more success!
