With a large number of players unavailable, Wests’ women’s grade teams played valiantly but ultimately went down in both grades last weekend.

First Grade

After restricting Ipswich-Logan to 182 from 49 overs with a fine bowling effort all round, Wests lost wickets steadily to be all out for 152 in the 37th over. A 77-run stand for the third wicket between Meagan Dixon and Annie Wikman promised for a while to propel the girls past Ipswich-Logan’s total, but it wasn’t to be.

Key individual statistics:

  • Annie Wikman 65 (83)
  • Meagan Dixon 39 (50) and 2/22 (10)
  • Isobel Hartog 2/36 (10)
  • Alex Lloyd 2/21 (6)

Second Grade

With our second grade team including four players on debut plus another two players filling in, this weeks game was always likely to be a challenge by any measure. Our girls batted first and began well with a 41-run partnership between Kinjal Dani and Emma Lockwood before Emma departed. Our final two batsmen Sarah Kelso and Allegra Nearhos held on grimly for a final wicket partnership of 11 to take the total to 82.

Redlands briefly looked vulnerable early when Sarah Kelso took the wicket of opener J Little with the score on 2, but Wests total was overtaken without further loss in the fifteenth over.

Key individual statistics:

  • Kinjal Dani 22 (31)
  • Emma Lockwood 12 (23)
  • Sarah Kelso 1/9 (4)
