Harvey-Benger Cricket Club’s women’s team continued their good form with a comprehensive 123 run win over Leschenault in Harvey on Sunday.

Winning the toss and batting first, Harvey-Benger’s openers Sam Bozanich (25no) and Taneeka De ridder (51no) set the tone early as the home team piled on the runs. Megan Minton (37no off 24) and Trinity Brown (66no off 38) then increased the run rate with Brown playing trick shots all around the ground. Harvey-Benger ended their 20 overs with a total of 2/237.

In reply, Leschenault lost early wickets as Laura Cheney (4/16), Sam Bozanich (1/17) and captain Minton (1/15) kept the scoring rate down. Brown continued her all round performance taking two middle order wickets and a brilliant one-handed catch as Harvey-Benger bowled out Leschenault for 114.

Harvey-Benger’s next match is against Burekup Queen Bees next Sunday.
