Wins for Cats, Bulls


Macedon cemented its spot in the Gisborne and District Cricket Association women’s top two with a strong win against Lancefield Yellow on Sunday.

After rain washed out most of the men’s games on Saturday, the sun broke through and the women’s competition was able to still go ahead.

Macedon, which has won the last two titles, put out a strong performance against Lancefield Yellow to win by 18 runs.

The Cats made 2-124 from their 20 overs with Amy Miles top scoring with 43 not out having retired to give others an opportunity.

The Tigers were able to put on some partnerships, but fell short, making 3-106.

The win was the Cats fourth for the season and they sit three points behind Darley. The Tigers sit in fifth spot.

Bacchus Marsh was also on the winners list, beating Gisborne.

The Bulls made 5-111 from their 20 overs with Emily Kennedy and Sarah Bamford both making 24 each.

Dragons coach Brianna Woodburn was the pick of the bowlers, taking 2-20 off her four overs.

The Dragons started strongly before losing a couple of wickets. The side was able to steady and were sitting at 2-70.

As they went to push the run rate the wickets started to fall. The Dragons finished 8-86, having had just nine players bat.

Woodburn top scored with 29 before being run out and Ruby Watts made 22.

Emily Kennedy and Ashley Gillard took two wickets each for the Bulls.
