NSW makes it two from two to end season on a positive

NEW South Wales has made it two wins from as many games in the WNCL and ended its season on a high with a 70-run win over the Scorpions. After the Breakers posted 9/265, they then restricted their visitors to 195 before bowling them out.

New South Wales’ strong score was set in motion right from the start of its innings, with Tahlia Wilson and Claire Moore put on a 118-run opening partnership.

Although the scoring did slow up when Wilson was dismissed as the third wicket, that strong start that she, Moore and Georgia Adams had put together helped cement the score that was in the end a winning one.

Wilson was by far the pick of the batters, smashing nine fours on her way to 100 not out. Moore made 48 while Adams made 42.

On the other side of the equation, Anesu Mushangwe was the pick of the South Australian bowlers with three wickets, while Jemma Barsby and Amanda-Jade Wellington picked up two each.

South Australia in reply lost its first wicket after only two overs with nine runs on the board, and it was a sign of things to come. The only partnership of any substance was the 58-run final wicket partnership between Eleanor Larosa and Kate Peterson. It could have been even worse for the Scorpions if the Breakers did not concede 28 wides.

Unsurprisingly Larosa was the best of the South Australian batters with 55, while the next highest being Courtney Webb with 22.

Meanwhile for the Breakers Hannah Darlington was the pick of the bowlers with three wickets, while Sammy-Jo Johnson and Erin Burns picked up two wickets each.

With the completion of this match the season has now ended for both these teams, with neither side in contention for finals even coming into the final round of matches.
