Our Women’s Social Cricket team won the Premiership this past Friday! Please find the write up below:
“It’s a good start to 2022 when your Women’s Social Cricket Team brings home the Premiership Shield!
The forecast for the day was 30 degrees with a light breeze. Perfect conditions to play a Grand Final! It was Doggies VS Falcons. Doggies had already faced the Falcons in round three and lost by one run. This time the girls were determined to get to the finish line first.
The Falcons won the toss and elected to field first. Doggies had an exceptional batting innings with heavy sprinkling boundaries (21) and a few sixes (2). We only lost two wickets, setting a decent target of 126.
The Falcons come on the pitch hard and strong, determined as always, to catch up on us. They hit us with a few sixes and boundaries of their own, getting pretty close to the target! Thanks to Fi, Kate and Nipuni we managed to get 3 wickets and keep them at bay. Their efforts fell short in the end resulting in victory for the Doggies!
The Doggies girls have brought home the inaugural Women’s Cricket League Shield ! We are looking forward to the next season in Spring. Bring it on!”
