The final preliminary round of the Chelmer Girls Cricket Challenge was completed this week with Wests Stage 2/3 teams splitting wins and losses and the Stage 1 girls also posting a tight win over Moggill.
The championship round for the Stage 2/3 will be contested this week with Wests Falcons playing the final against Souths Fire and Wests Harriers playing UQ for the third place playoff. The winner of the championship final will take home the Kirby Short Cup – MSW’s principle trophy for girls club cricket.
Good luck in the finals, girls!
Stage 2/3 Falcons vs Souths Fire
By Emma Lockwood
Friday night saw the Falcons take on Souths Fire. Even though it may not have been our best team performance there was still some good individual achievements. Good sportsmanship and encouragement of each other were the highlights of the game. We look forward to changing the result in the final.
Stage 2/3 Harriers vs Kenmore
By Scarlett Varidel
The Wests Harriers came away with a win against Kenmore. Both Holly Walker and Sofia Nearhos retired with a contributing score leading us to win the game. The team were lively in the field and enthusiastic with their roles. We had a great performance through the night and can’t wait for the play-off for third place this week against UQ.
