East Metro Women’s Social Competition

8th February 2021
SUNDAY SAW the Warrandyte Social Sixers Women compete in the first ever East Metro Social Competition, played against other Social Sixers participants from various other cricket clubs.
We were all very proud to represent the club and the Warrandyte community, and it was a great success.
The format was an eight-a-side, 14 over innings, with nothing taken too seriously, and we all had a laugh.
Warrandyte Vs Koonung Heights
Warrandyte won the toss and decided to bat, we sent out our openers and we got the score ticking away nicely.
We lost a few early wickets after that, but our tail-enders were up to the task and held their ground.
We faced economical bowling from Koonung and ended the innings 7/52.
After tea Koonung sent out their batters.
We took a few early wickets, a catch and a run out and we were on track for an even game, their middle order then picked up the pace and the runs started to get away from us a little.
Koonung finished their innings with 5/94.
The score unfortunately did not reflect the quality of play from Warrandyte, but as the game was purely social and for fun, we all really enjoyed ourselves and the game.
Ronda Arthur 11
Renelle Trayford 9
Jillian Garvey 5
Sandi Miller 2/10
Samantha Saunders 1/11
