Chapman Valley-Northampton and Wanderers played the first ever tie in the Young Motors Women’s Cricket League’s five-year history on Sunday. Wanderers were two players short, including their captain and star all-rounder Olivia Bidwell, but CVN will regard a tie against the premiers as a great result. CVN co-captains Jess Wilson and Tarni Screaigh batted after they won the toss at GBSC Park and CVN made 8-50 from their 20 overs. Only Kylie Bremner (16) and Wilson (10) made double figures. Even with extra gaps in the field, the Wanderers attack was superb with good work from Kasey Maynard (2-5), Layne Gillingham (2-9) and Charli Bidwell (2-6). Bremner (2-7) and Chloe Phillips (3-9) took the new ball for CVN in Wanderers’ innings. Both took a wicket in their first over with stand-in captain Ashlyn Thompson bowled by Bremner while Bidwell was caught by Charlene Miller off Phillips. Phillips then bowled Abby Green in her second over and Screaigh had Kym Trenfield caught behind by Wilson and Wanderers were 4-12. Gillingham (13) and Tammy Solomon added 16 before Phillips caught and bowled Gillingham while Bremner had Solomon “pouched” by Phillips. Wanderers were 7-36 after Charlotte Layton fell to Kate Clarkson. Linda Rose (14) stayed calm picking off singles and a couple of loudly-cheered fours while Maynard blocked. It came down to the last over bowled by Natasha Skaines with Wanderers’ last pair needing four to win. Rose found a single off the first ball and there was a bye off the fifth leaving Rose to score two off the last ball to win. She got one for the tie but a second wasn’t there and Screaigh and Wilson ran her out, with the game tied at 50 runs apiece. * The other game at the Rec was easily won by Sportsmans over Towns. Sporties’ skipper Jo Walker won the toss and sent Towns in to bat, who only managed 9-46. Towns captain Ruth Vorster (13) added 19 with Rebekah MacLachlan after Ruby MacPherson (2-8) struck a big blow with Dirranie Kirby held by Belinda Burrows while Emma Harris fell to Walker (2-3). The innings fell apart after Vorster was bowled by Jess Wake (3-14) and Sportsmans lost only two wickets while securing the target. They finished at 6-147. Burrows (38) and Stacey Jerrard (30) put on 81 for the third wicket while Wake (25 not out) capped off a good day with the bat. Indiana Burns returned the best bowling figures with 2-18.
