The vastly improved Greenies Women’s team came second in the League but went one step further taking the Women’s T/20 championship in style on Sunday at the Smith Road Oval.
Winning the toss, Greenies captain Carmel Harms invited Panthers to bat first. As usual, Ingrid Sherson took a wicket in her first over, bowling Panthers run machine Wyvonne Forbes.
Greenies displayed a clinical plan with set field placing for specific batters and utilising their main bowlers at strategic times. Despite the early loss, Panthers captain Molly-Ann Moore hit 44 not out and marshalled her team to a challenging total of 96 for the loss of 4 wickets.
A sudden downpour of rain did not dampen the Greenies spirit. Cheered on by many of their club members and supporters Harms hit 31n.o and Sherson 25n.o made certain of victory with an undefeated second wicket partnership of 73 runs. Greenies won by 9 wickets. The victory was dedicated to the memory of their friend and teammate Alex Horner who tragically passed away earlier this year.
In the playoff for third position Island Heritage Stingrays defeated Motown by 8 wickets.
