Our first grade women posted a great win over Sandgate-Redcliffe this week, reversing the result of their previous 50-over encounter on October. Second grade’s first game back after the Christmas break was unfortunately washed out.

Tammy Cole and Kathleen Mallyon guided the dogs home for a four wicket victory in the thirty-second over.
