By Olivia Totten.

On Friday 27th, West Ospreys took on UQ Blaze at Moggill Sports ground.

After losing the toss the Ospreys were sent in to field. There was great enthusiasm and high energy with the girls bowling out UQ Blaze in just 16 overs for a total of 26 runs. The Ospreys were very tight in the field with three catches including one amazing diving catch from Ishani. Nearly everyone took a wicket, with Sophie Martin taking 2 wickets in 3 balls and Penny Munday bowling 2 overs for 1 wicket and just 1 run.

The Ospreys went into bat chasing a total of 27 runs to win. The Westies ended up at 1/97 including a great opening partnership from Sophie Martin, 16 off 15 balls, and Lacey Kennedy, 9 off 15 balls.

The Ospreys are looking forward to their rematch against the Harriers next Sunday.
