Two Wells v ATCO

Our girls played away against ATCO in the last minor round.

We bowled first and our opening bowlers Kayhla Warren and Hayley Matthews both bowled well, keeping the run-rate down.

They were unlucky not to snag a couple of early wickets. Annaliese Halliday was our first to get a wicket, taking a stunning caught and bowled leaving ATCO 1-64.

The ATCO girls went on and built a decent partnership until Leah Clifton was brought on and claimed three wickets, including a nice run-out to Abby Chenoweth.

ATCO set the Two Wells girls a target of 6/149, with Leah finishing with figures of 3/22 off six overs and Anna 1/15 off five overs.

Two Wells changed things up when we went into bat, sending Abby out with Hayley, and the girls got us off to a flyer, hitting some nice boundaries before Abby was out for 21.

Hayley was joined by Leanne and both kept the runs coming before Hayley was dismissed for 27.

Anna joined Leanne at the crease and together piled on the runs, getting us past ATCO’s score with four overs left.

We batted the overs out; Leanne finished on 27 and Anna made a career-high score of 24, leaving Two Wells 2/178.
