Week 8 - Friday 24 March

Girls Cricket result 24/3/2017 – GRAND FINAL
PGS 4/60 defeated Mercedes 5/54 

Pulteney were faced with a very competitive Mercedes for our Grand final. We bowled first, and after Isabella Fabbro took an early wicket in the first over, Mercedes fought back well with excellent hitting and running between wickets. Neha Athreya took a fantastic catch off of Tayler Price’s bowling to help stem the tide and turn the momentum in Pulteney’s favour. Three late run outs, two of these involving Laura Argy, helped restrict Mercedes to a very chase-able target. 

Pulteney struggled early on in our run chase, losing wickets regularly during the first few overs. Enter Pippa Adkins. Pippa took a couple of overs to get in to her innings, but once she did, the flood gates opened. It was a match winning performance from Pippa who took 22 runs off one over, and ended with an unbeaten 34, including two sixes and three fours. Isabel Tynan supported Pippa well as we were reaching Mercedes’ total, giving the team good stability. 

It was a wonderful performance by the girls, and fantastic to see them fight back after being challenged. A great end to a wonderful competition by the team.
