Leschenault cop a heavy defeat on the road against Donnybrook in BDCA women’s competition
The Leschenault women’s side were handed a tough loss on the road against Donnybrook on Sunday in wet and windy conditions.
Leschenault won the toss and elected to bat, but could not get going and were 6-10 in the early stages of the fixture.
Chloe Papas did her best to occupy the crease and give the Green Caps bowlers a target to bowl at as partners fell around her.
Papas (13) was the last batter to fall as the visitors scraped their way to 10-37 off 16.1.
Ava Dodds gave the visiting side hope when she removed Summer Towers for a duck in the first over, but this brought Ashleigh Towers to the crease who quickly swung the momentum back in favour of Donnybrook.
Emily Young went on to claim the Green Caps’ second wicket of the innings, but it was all in vain as the home side chased down the total to claim an eight-wicket victory.
