The final was underway with the girls rocking up to home ground, Chelmer Park, locked and loaded. With the toss being won by the UQ team, the Westies had their eyes set on posting an unreachable total.
Naiya Varidel and Emma Lockwood opened the batting setting a 46-run partnership on the board before Emma was dismissed in the 7th over. Scarlett Varidel took to the crease looking to setup another definitive partnership and did so before she was out on a tough call of lbw. The dogs finished the innings with 135 runs to defend and defend they would.
Opening from the northern end, Jess Bryant sent six pills down the pitch who along with Eloise Schabe, set standards high for the girls. After them came the rock Sophie Martin, taking the first wicket of the match. Soon after, Naiya Varidel swooped another and before anyone knew it, the UQ batsmen were dropping like flies.
After a great season, the girls took the Kirby Short Cup and will be coming back better next year to bring it home again once more.
